First trailer for the esports mockumentary from the creators of American Vandal is perfectly cringey

Players, a mockumentary about a fictional League of Legends pro team struggling to claim its first world championship, was first revealed in 2021 as the next show from the creators of the brilliant American Vandal. Today Paramount+ released the first trailer for the show, and boy, it sure is on the money.

Creamcheese is the top player on Team Fugitive, a (not real) LCS pro team that’s made multiple trips to Worlds, but never managed to actually secure the big prize. Now, with its 27-year-old superstar on the verge of aging out, Fugitive signs Organizm, a decade-younger prodigy being positioned as the new face of the team—and of the entire pro LoL scene. Conflict almost immediately ensues: Creamcheese reveals ugly insecurities, while Organizm struggles under the crushing pressure of expectations.
