Since we were so successful in our last campaign, we are using that platform again,”?People you Know?co-creator John Dylan DeLaTorre said. “Creators can reach and cultivate an audience that is just as passionate about the characters and narrative as we are. We have been lucky to connect with the viewers in a way that is truly remarkable. We?ve heard from the fans and know they want to see more. We are very excited to continue telling our story.?
