Made in March 2022 for Frequency 101

This was a pilot I made for Frequency 101, in March 2022. It was a pretty high maintenance yet low-concept show idea. The story in this 'pilot' was a bit too movie trailer-like and it didn't seem to make the voting audience happy. However. I still think it's damn funny and the cast is hilarious! This is an ode to the basic-ass comedies I bought on VHS in the '90s.
