Want To Watch Dungeons & Dragons Stuff 24/7? There Will Soon Be a Channel for That

Dungeon & Dragons is having a moment right now. The recent D&D movie, Honor Among Thieves was well received by critics and fans (how could it not be, if it includes such a chonk of a murderous dragon?), and the powers that be are ready to roll the dice on more D&D entertainment options.

According to Variety, eOne is launching a free, ad-supported streaming channel called Dungeons & Dragons Adventures, which will be a bunch of unscripted shows where famous people play D&D, as well as D&D-related stuff in their archives, such as the 1980s Dungeons & Dragons animated series.

We have details on the three of the new shows: “Encounter Party,” “Faster, Purple Worm! Kill! Kill!” and “Heroes’ Feast.”

“Encounter Party” is based on the podcast of the same name and features six returning professional actors and improv artists from the original project as well as Khary Payton (The Walking Dead). The group will play “an original D&D campaign with original characters set in the world of the Forgotten Realms.”

“Faster, Purple Worm! Kill! Kill!” is an improv comedy-style version of a D&D campaign, where each episode centers on a group of first-level characters who take on a big baddie that will undoubtedly kill them all in creative ways.

“Heroes’ Feast” sounds like it’s more a cooking competition show than traditional gameplay, with the two hosts, Mike Haracz and Sujata Day, preparing a D&D-themed meal for their guests.

The channel will also, according to Variety, feature shows created by those outside of eOne, specifically “top internet creators and influencers with a focus on live gameplay.”

“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,” Dan Rawson, SVP of Dungeons & Dragons at Wizard of the Coast (a subsidiary of Hasbro), said in a statement to Variety. “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.”

No news yet on what streaming platforms this channel will become available on or when, though eOne states they except it to be on “a number” of them. Whether Honor Among Thieves will ever make its way to the channel remains to be seen, although it’s unlikely given Paramount owns the rights.
