D.C. Young Fly made a name for himself as a comedian on Instagram. He managed to take his career from digital sketches on social media to roles in film and television shows. The former host of MTV’s rebooted Total Request Live will star in the upcoming film #DigitalLivesMatter.

Directed by Terri J. Vaughn, #DigitalLivesMatter follows a rising social media sensation as watches his 3 million followers vanish before his eyes. A tech savvy “computer geek” imposes a series of challenges the comedian must meet before getting his followers back.

#DigitalLivesMatter will be available on VOD and Digital HD on digital platforms on April 9.
