In 2013, Adult Swim announced that Grant co-created and will be starring in and executive producing a pilot based on the webseries she co-created, Team Unicorn.

Other projects

Under their company Danger Maiden Productions, Grant began her producing endeavors with her partner Rileah Vanderbilt, with their viral online series Saber, winning them two awards at the 2009 Star Wars Fan Film Awards: Best Action and Audience Choice awards.

In its first week alone, the team’s first project, G33k & G4m3r Girls, a parody of Katy Perry's California Gurls video, achieved over one million views. Stirring much controversy over its sexy portrayal of the women, G33k & G4m3r Girls is a "love letter" written by the girls that pays tribute to their shared mutual passion of gaming, manga, and science fiction.
