“Do We need to protect Wayne from the world..or do we need to protect the world from Wayne?” the question asked in the trailer for the new you tube originals series, WAYNE!
WAYNE is from the writers of the hit movie franchise, Deadpool, and is being touted as an action comedy series about a teenage Dirty Harry!
In this gritty and sometimes bloody tale, sixteen year-old Wayne (McKenna) sets out on a dirt bike with his new crush Del (Bravo) to take back the 1978 Pontiac Trans Am that was stolen from his father before he died. It is Wayne and Del against the world. Wayne is clearly going to have to fight his way through several enemies in order to get what he wants, including the car’s new owners and Del’s overprotective father and brothers. But luckily, he has several weapons to fight his battles with, including nunchucks, an aluminum bat, and a garden gnome on a chain.
