HistoryEdit

Stevie Ryan moved to L.A. at age 19 to pursue a career in acting and modeling, but she wanted to make people laugh. It was YouTube that inspired Ryan to be funny. She received a camcorder from her ex-boyfriend originally to shoot silent films. Instead, she focused on impersonating celebrities including Justin Bieber, Lady Gaga, Rachel Zoe, and Amy Winehouse. She even developed her own characters on YouTube, such as Mexican-American homegirl Little Loca and 15-year-old wild child Katrina, who claimed she slept with hundreds of men in one day to be on Bang Bus. The characters Ryan played got thousands of YouTube hits that gained the attention of VH1, who gave her her own show.[3]

ProductionEdit

It was announced in April 2012 that Stevie TV was renewed for a second season,[4] which premiered on May 31, 2013.[5]
