Share This Post

BuzzFeed enters the Dungeons & Dragons space with their new liveplay series, “Magic & Stuff,” showcasing an all queer female-identifying cast with diverse voices and varying levels of experience, from novices to experts. Releasing on YouTube weekly starting May 31, there will be 8 fast and punchy half-hour episodes. A breath of fresh air in a genre that can feature hours long unedited content that can be intimidating for newcomers, each episode will include epic animations and gameplay tips sprinkled throughout. These fun character moments and cool action sequences enhance watchability and accessibility for those uninitiated to D&D.  The animated segments will also act as built-in short form vertical content for TikTok, Instagram, Facebook, and YouTube Shorts.

The cast includes Meredith Kesh as Freddie, a demon paladin who gives great hugs; our favorite drag queen, Syzygy, playing Mrs.  Readings, a human bard “grandmother” – just don’t ask where her ex-husbands went; Elisabeth Riley as Felyn, a vampire rogue who loves gaslighting, gatekeeping, and girlbossing; Elizabeth Gottlieb, playing Ikky the Wizard, a possum sorcerer who’s just a little guy; and seasoned Dungeon Master Jasmine “ThatBronzeGirl” Bhullar, actress and writer for Dimension20, DesiQuest, and Critical Role, as well as Twitch content creator.

“Magic & Stuff” is produced for BuzzFeed Studios by creators and executive producers Elisabeth Riley and  Meredith Kesh, director Derek Benig, and Jun Zee Myers, Head of the Animation Lab..

“We are thrilled to be announcing our exciting new animated properties for 2024 “Magic & Stuff,” “Puerco y Babosa” and “El Mundo De Boggs,” Zee Myers, Head of  Animation Lab for BuzzFeed Studios stated. “The BuzzFeed Animation Lab has seen huge success and explosive growth for our animated properties and our new class of creators are making wonderful diverse content for 2024 – I can’t wait to share them with old and new fans.”
