Maximum Effort Channel, owned by Ryan Reynolds, partnered with Paul Fusco, who is the creator of the 80s hit sitcom ‘ALF.’ Together they have created new ‘ALF’ content starring wisecracking alien. The hit sitcom from 1986-1990 stars “Alien Life Form,” who resides in suburbia with a human family.
Fusco and Maximum Effort revived the ‘ALF’ with Shout! Studios and the content will premiere on 29th July. The new sponsor-driven content will have advertising messages integrated between “ALF” episodes of companies, including Fubo, Ring, and Mint Mobile.
This sponsored content, dubbed “Maximum Moments,” will feature brand-new storylines with ALF. Ryan Reynolds said, “At Maximum Effort, we love taking risks and blurring the lines between shows and sponsorship because we believe both can be equally entertaining.”
Starting this Saturday, you can watch both “ALF” and “Maximum Moments” episodes on Maximum Effort Channel. The channel is available on Amazon Freevee, Fubo, LG Channels, Sling Freestream, Plez, Tubi, Xumo Play, Vizio Watchfree+, and VIDAA.
