the animated series The Gimmicks is the latest NFT project associated with a TV show by actress Mila Kunis.
today was announced “The Gimmicks”an animated wrestling show, based on non-fungible tokens, NFTs, supported by the producer Sixth Wall of Ukrainian-American actress Mila Kunis.
She had already dabbled in the world of NFTs. In the middle of last year, she created Stoner Cats, an animated short that could only be seen if you had an NFT and that had the voices of famous Hollywood stars, including herself, and had the participation of the voice of the co-founder of ethereum, Vitalik Buterin. It is worth noting that at that time it was such a success that the NFTs of kittens collapsed the Ethereum network.
Kunis is back at it now. This time launching an animated series for adults, self-described as “South Park Meets WWE” (the WWE is the entertainment company associated with wrestling). The series follows the story of a group of unsuccessful wrestlers who yearn to achieve former glory by boosting a controversial rookie. The characters are played by real wrestling stars Luke “Doc” Gallows, Karl “Machine Gun” Anderson and Rocky Romero, according to reports on the web.
The non-fungible token (NFT) component comes in the form of a “choose your own adventure” mode for owners of the program’s NFTs, which it allows them to vote on the show’s plot direction at the end of each episode.

The cost is still unknown, but in a part of the page it says that it seeks to be accessible so that more people enter the ecosystem
This is how he explains the project on the web:
Gimmicks are a collection of NFTs randomly generated programmatically on the Solana blockchain. NFTs represent unique characters that live in the universe of our animated series called The Gimmicks. Each character is made up of unique traits and will be a 1 of 1.
Gimmicks NFT holders will have early access to watch the animated short series we are creating, as well as participate in the creative process. The first season will be released weekly with creative input from NFT holders.”
In addition, Kunis expressed in a statement:
“I see the technology and community that comes with NFT and Web 3, allowing the audience to communicate directly and let creators know what they like and don’t like. There’s room for traditional film and TV development, as well as this wilder, more fun chaos that comes with Web 3 development.
The chimera of token-backed content creation is a landscape where producers and filmmakers can raise funds for projects while retaining creative control and distribution rights, and in recent months, this dream has come true multiple times. , He says coindesk and exemplifies with NFT artist Pplpleasr who launched her streaming platform Shibuya in early March, with NFT to watch the pilot episode of their first series “White Rabbit”with a sales volume of 431 ETH (around USD $1.1 million).
In addition, ritestream, a decentralized platform for content creators to raise funds for long-form video content, is preparing to launch its beta next week, giving anyone who invests in movies through token ownership of eventual distribution rights says the medium.
