The Other Two is a comedy series that chronicles the lives of two siblings struggling in the field to establish a strong foothold when facing the internet success of their 13-year-old brother. Former Saturday Night Live writers, Sarah Schneider and Chris Kelly produced the scripted series. The first broadcast was on Comedy Central on January 24, 2019.
Created by Chris Kelly and Sarah Schneider, former co-head of the SNL, The Other Two is based on Chase Dreams (Case Walker), who becomes “The Next Big White Kid” when the “Marry U at Recess” song goes viral overnight. But don’t let the idea fool you — it’s not a snappy sitcom about the Gen Z influencer, it’s a detailed satire about the way young success might be exploitative.
