YouTube has been working towards gaining more subscribers for its YouTube Red subscription service. According to TV Series Finale, the relatively new streaming service is offering a free viewing of one of its original series titled Escape the Night. The series is hosted by YouTube star Joey Graceffa. In Escape the Night, 10 guests are invited from the modern world to attend a dinner at Graceffa’s newly acquired mansion estate; which has been closed since the 1920s.
YouTube Red assures that this is a “dinner party to die for; no one is safe.” In addition to Graceffa, the YouTube Red series stars other digital personalities including GloZell Green, Justing Ezarik (iJustine), Lele Pons, Shane Dawson, Eva Gutowski (MyLifeAsEva), Andrea Brooks (AndreasChoice), Timothy DeLaGhetto, Matt Haag (Nadeshot), Oli White (TheOliWhiteTV), and Sierra Furtado (SierraMarieMakeup).
To celebrate the premiere of Escape the Night, YouTube Red is offering the first episode for free.

The online TV series is part of YouTube Red Originals featuring films and web series from YouTube’s most popular online stars. New episodes of Escape the Night will become available on Wednesdays beginning today (June 22, 2016) exclusively on YouTube Red.
For those unfamiliar with YouTube Red, it’s a paid YouTube subscription and with purchase members receive ad-free exclusive access to premium content. As of now YouTube Red is available in the US and other countries. The service plans to expand to more countries later this year.
If you’re attending VidCon this year, you can join Graceffa and friends for the official Escape the Night fan screening on Thursday, June 23rd from 2-3pm PT in Hall C.
