Despite recent Open Gaming License controversy, Dungeons & Dragons remains the world’s most popular tabletop roleplaying game and has crossed over to other media since its inception. One of the earliest and beloved examples of these is the classic Dungeons & Dragons Saturday morning cartoon from 1983. Plus, D&D has been referenced in pop culture franchises such as Stranger Things, The Big Bang Theory, Community, and even had its own big screen movie with Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves.

But how does a 24/7 streaming channel with nothing but Dungeons & Dragons content sound? Check out the details revealed so far.

The exclusive report comes via Variety and shared by Entertainment One (eOne) on their official social media channels such as Twitter:

According to the report, eOne is developing Dungeons & Dragons Adventures, a FAST (free, ad-supported streaming) channel. It will be available on multiple platforms, though no specifics have been given as of the time of this writing.

But the big question is will there be enough D&D-centric content to fill a 24/7 streaming channel lineup? Apparently, the Dungeons & Dragons Adventures FAST channel will include unscripted celebrity-focused series and third party content from internet creators and influencers.

The Dungeons & Dragons Adventures FAST (free, ad-supported streaming) channel will feature content and shows exclusively dedicated to D&D material, many of which are by third-party celebrities and influencers.

Dan Rawson, Senior Vice President of Wizards of Coast in charge of the Dungeons & Dragons brand states:

This is an amazing opportunity to create and highlight exciting, engaging Dungeons & Dragons content, to both serve our wide audience of existing fans and welcome a new wave of fans to the community. We look forward to bringing this channel to life and continuing to build out the thrilling D&D universe with even more content, partnerships and innovative formats.

So far, the shows eOne has revealed in the Variety news report include:

  • Encounter Party! – Similar to the highly successful Critical Role actual play, Encounter Party! is a podcast comprised of professional voice actors playing D&D. While the first campaign was under their independent production, the second campaign will be an official Dungeons & Dragons show under the new FAST channel.
  • Heroes’ Feast – This show will be based on the bestselling cookbook of the same name. Heroes’ Feast is actually a spell from the Dungeons & Dragons rules that creates, well, a heroes’ feast that player characters can consume to gain sustenance and significant bonuses to their abilities for a limited time. Heroes’ Feast will feature Chef Mike Haracz and Sujata Day in this combination cooking, competition, and talk show.
  • Faster, Purple Worm! Kill! Kill! – The show is a part actual play, part improv comedy sketch. Each episode will have a revolving table of celebrities playing D&D with low level characters. Co-produced by Beadle and Grimm’s, Faster, Purple Worm! Kill! Kill! already has a number of episodes streamed on Peacock, G4TV, Twitch, and YouTube. Celebrities that have previously appeared include Matthew Lillard (who is also the series co-creator), B. Dave Watlers, Deborah Ann Woll, and Seth Green.
  • Other than these 3 productions, the Dungeons & Dragons Adventures FAST channel will also stream the Dungeons & Dragons cartoon in its entirety, similar to The Transformers and G.I. Joe animated series that are regularly streamed on Hasbro Pulse.

    eOne is a subsidiary of Hasbro that is primarily involved in the acquisition, production, and distribution of television shows and movies. Beginning as Records on Wheels Limited in 1970, the company rebranded to ROW Entertainment in 1980 and E1 Entertainment in 2009, before being acquired by Hasbro in 2019.

    The format of Heroes' Feast will be part-cooking show, part-talk show, and part-competition.

    The company has had a slew of successful film and television productions. Among them are Peppa Pig, The Rookie, Yellowjackets, Moonshine, Power Rangers Dino Fury, The Fabelmans, and The Woman King. eOne also collaborated with Paramount Pictures for the live action Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves movie. eOne is also working on new projects for Hasbro’s other big IPs including The Transformers, G.I. Joe, Clue, My Little Pony, and Play-Doh.

    As of the time of this writing, no official announcement has been made as to the date of the Dungeons & Dragons Adventures FAST channel launch, although it is targeted for summer 2023.
