TBS Orders Pilot From Finals Girls’ Todd Strauss-Schulson and Matt Fogel
Here’s yet another step in a good direction for TBS.
In case you haven’t taken note, TBS is giving themselves an overhaul. Already, they have a talk show from Samantha Bee and a sitcom from Jason Jones coming up. Now, they’ve just ordered a comedy pilot from the minds of Todd Strauss-Schulson, the mastermind behind the wonderful meta 80s slasher comedy The Final Girls, and Matt Fogel, who composed music on Funny or Die’s The Wire: The Musical.
It’ll follow two friends who are part of a generation of men that are embracing all their emotions. While that’s not much to try to imagine what the pilot might exactly entail, we’re pretty sure Strauss-Schulson and Fogel have something clever up their sleeve given their past work.
All in all, we’re really intrigued to see how good this new TBS could be.
Watch a Really Fun Trailer For Meta Horror Comedy “The Final Girls”
Do not confuse this with the recent thriller Final Girl.
The Final Girls, from director Todd Strauss-Schulson and writers M.A. Fortin and Joshua John Miller, looks a damn good time that both celebrates and simultaneously pokes fun at the genre tropes of so many cheesy horror movies from decades past.
From the looks of it, the cast of Thomas Middleditch, Alia Shawkat, Malin Akerman, Adam Devine, Angela Trimbur, Nina Dobrev, and Taissa Farmiga bring the crazy premise of being transported into a cheesy horror movie and trying to survive really well.
See what could be a very welcome load of wonderful madness in the trailer for The Final Girls here.
