LOS ANGELES - December 13, 2019 - Caffeine, a new kind of broadcast company focused on the creation and distribution of live, interactive content, announced an exclusive new series from Bright Bay Creative, “Catchin' W's With JuJu,” from NFL star and gamer JuJu Smith-Schuster.

"The thing I love most about streaming is being able to engage with my fans—it feels like we're all hanging out in one room together even though we're all over the world,” said Smith-Schuster. “I’m excited to be on Caffeine and have the fans watch me game, talk some trash, and see me get these W’s against my friends!"
“Catchin' W's With JuJu” is produced for Caffeine by Bright Bay Creative, with Brandon Killion, Dave Luce and Tony Nguyen serving as executive producers. “We’re thrilled to be in business with JuJu and Caffeine, especially in a space and on a platform that provides such unlimited opportunity,” said Killion. “We’re confident that JuJu’s fans will be excited to see him in a new, competitive arena.”
