Fubo & Ryan Reynold’s Latest Project Tackles ‘Almost-Forgotten Favorites’ Like Furby, Gameboy, American Gladiators, and More





Fubo has partnered with Ryan Reynolds’ Maximum Effort and the Nacelle Company to release Discontinued, a nostalgia-packed docuseries hosted by Bruce Campbell. 

The ten-episode docuseries takes audiences on a journey through the past, featuring products, phenomena, and phrases that have been discontinued but not forgotten. Campbell and a team of snarky comedians comment on the human condition “just before AI destroys it.”

“It’s always a pleasure teaming up with creative, innovative folks like the collective fancy pants of Ryan Reynolds and Brian Volk-Weiss,” said Campbell. “Between Maximum Effort, Fubo, and the Nacelle team, I knew Discontinued would be in good hands. I’m excited for folks to see this fun-filled look in the rearview mirror – nostalgia with a twist.”

The show takes a look at “almost-forgotten favorites” like Furby, Gameboy, Daft Punk, TalkBoy, Legends of the Hidden Temple, Blockbuster Video, McDonald’s Arch Deluxe, Disneyland’s Videopolis, the Boeing 747, Total Request Live, American Gladiators, and other nostalgic trends from the past.

The show debuts as a wave of nostalgia sweeps streaming platforms and theatrical releases. Popular animated shows like Futurama and King of the Hill are seeing revival seasons premiere on Hulu, while the Barbie movie made millions at the box office this summer.

“Never did I think I would be able to combine my nostalgia for discontinued products with my nerd crush, film legend Bruce Campbell,” said Reynolds.

Discontinued will debut on the Maximum Effort Channel on Fubo on Thursday, November 30 at 8:00 p.m. ET before moving to its regular time at 9:00 p.m. every Wednesday starting December 6. Check out the trailer here.

The Maximum Effort Channel is curated by Ryan Reynolds and is available to stream on Fubo, along with more than 300 live sports channels. The channel is run by the producers behind Deadpool, Free Guy, The Adam Project, and Welcome to Wrexham, which makes movies, television series, and cocktails “for the personal amusement of Hollywood star Ryan Reynolds,” which it “occasionally shares with the general public.”
