Episode One

Author: KIMA

Hollywood Esports presents “The Rising Star” - a docuseries that follows the ‘Hammers’ brand’s evolution as it seeks to become a household esports name. Founded three years ago by passionate gamers, they sought to build an organization within a mobile game that had quickly brought them together–Vainglory. Fast forward to the present day where this 100% homegrown brand finds its home in Hollywood as the “Hollywood Hammers” with its emerging partnership with the world-renowned iconic theatre, the TCL Chinese Theatres. Get an inside look at the players and staff who work tirelessly to overcome challenges to achieve their dreams in the booming esports industry!




In a blink of an eye, three years have passed for the ‘Hammers’ family. Anyone who’s been with us since day one (especially those who are now in our core management team) will know the hardships of our young and constantly evolving esports startup. And luckily, for those of you who have been through these challenging evolutions, you’re now likely receiving more than a “Good Job!” for your efforts in helping us to create actual jobs in this industry, whether you’re a player for Hollywood Hammers, a talented design wizard, or a community manager. It took finding extremely passionate and talented individuals with an immense amount of patience to get to what we like to call our true beginning this year.


A big THANK YOU does go out to all of you, especially our fans, for your continued support. With our new Hollywood Esports joint venture with the TCL Chinese Theatres and MediaMation, Inc., we can’t wait to show you what comes next! Stay tuned.
