BuzzFeed / Unfortunatly Ashly
Ashly Perez joined BuzzFeed in 2013 as an editorial fellow. As a staff writer, she started BuzzFeed Travel and is responsible for two of BuzzFeed’s most viral early quizzes “What City Should You Actually Live In?” and “What Career Should You Actually Have?” In 2014, she moved to Los Angeles and joined BuzzFeed Motion Pictures. She is one of the co-creators behind BuzzFeed Violet, BuzzFeed’s first character universe. Ashly and her fellow producers/Violet characters released You Do You Season 1 in December 2015 and it was an immediate hit, garnering the top spot in the iTunes TV store for the entire week of launch and beating out The Walking Dead and Keepin’ Up with the Kardashians. Variety called You Do You Season 2 a “comedy hit.” Her latest show, Unfortunaltly Ashly, premiered as BFMP’s first ever scripted longform series to be sponsored by a brand.
