Full Preview of “Brad Neely’s Harg Nallin’ Sclopio Peepio” Goes Beyond 6 Seconds on Vine
If you’d like you could just watch this more traditional Vine as well.
The short form video platform Vine is expanding as its horizons just like Adult Swim is reaching out to new avenues in order to get the word out on their atypical programming.
So, with Brad Neely’s new show Brad Neely’s Harg Nallin’ Sclopio Peepio coming up next month, they’ve opted to use Vine to preview an entire episode before the series premiere on Sunday July 10th on Adult Swim.
Thankfully, it’s in its entirety and not in several six second clips.
Get into this full preview here.
Fox Developing Undercover Cop Comedy from Key & Peele Starring King Bach
It would seem that the worlds of sketch comedy and Vine meet at a single camera sitcom at Fox.
Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele undoubtedly had a lot of things come across their desk as well as their own projects after finishing up with Key & Peele. It turns out it didn’t take them long at all to move on to their next project as they are now producing a new project at Fox with one of the writers from their show, Alex Rubens.
Vine megastar King Bach (AKA Andrew Bachelor) is set to star as an undercover cop that will tap into the King Bach persona that’s gotten Bachelor over 14 million followers.
We’ll be curious to see what comes of all of this as well as if Jordan and Keegan will be in front of the camera in some capacity.
Support Jason Nash’s Next Film “FML: A Social Media Adventure”
Interestingly enough, Nash’s last film featured him doing a podcast as that was what he was doing at the time when he was putting the film together.
Nowadays, Jason has become quite the star on Vine with over 1.5 million followers. As such, he’s making this film with Vine stars as a buddy road comedy with two guys, him as one and Brandon Calvillo as the other, from much different generations trying to up their social media presence.
The likes of TJ Miller, Patton Oswalt, Rob Corddry, Busy Philipps, Ken Marino, Andy Daly, and Paul Scheer will be in FML as well as Vine stars Cavillo, Brittany Furlan, and Sunny Mabrey.
They’re looking to raise $200K and are at $22,663 with less than three weeks to go. If you want to help and donate, do so here ASAP.
High Concept Comedies Are in Style Ahead of This Pilot Season
There are indeed plenty of semi-autobiographical comedies in development, especially with the success of freshman series Cristela at ABC.
However, at the other end of the TV comedy development spectrum, at this time, is a bunch of high concept comedies that steer clear of the fish-out-of-water in a small (or big pond) dynamic. Conspiracy theories, witches, and, highest concept of all, Vine stars, and more are all subjects for comedy projects that are being worked for TV across several networks.
Specifically, TBS has ordered a sort of Lost parody from Justin and Jordan Shipley, DirecTV has ordered a parody reminiscent of Downton Abbey that will star Peter Serafinowicz and Will Sasso from College Humor’s Big Breakfast, Elizabeth Banks is set to produce and direct a workplace conspiracy theory comedy from Caroline Williams at ABC, 30 Rock’s Josh Siegal and Dylan Morgan are writing a witch comedy at NBC, Nick Frost is set to star in a comedy as an ex-jewel thief that’s having trouble getting out of the jewel thief business also at ABC, and Rainn Wilson is developing a series following stars (minus Curtis Lepore due to Internet outrage at his rape charge that he plead down to an assault charge) on the six second movie platform Vine trying to make it in the traditional half hour format.
There’s no telling where these will end up, if anywhere at all, but it’s a good sign to see more comedy series in the works that aren’t how two people met and fell in love or how an abnormally configured family figures out how to be a family.
It Would Seem Comedians Have Been Waiting For Something Like Vine
The six second .gif/stop motion animation/short film hybrid web app, Vine, has really taken off, especially when it comes to people involved in comedy. The short burst moving picture media seems to be perfect for those one-liner style jokes in a great new visual way.
As Nielsen Expands Scope of TV Ratings, a David Cross Movie Will Be Released on Vine
The Nielsen Company, in an attempt to more accurately represent viewership of TV shows with the current advent of the Internet and home/mobile devices, has agreed to expand the scope of their reported TV ratings to include Netflix, Amazon Instant, Xbox, Playstation, and the iPad. This is in addition to their Nielsen Twitter rating.
However, it was announced last month that the movie It’s A Disaster starring David Cross (it has a great trailer if you haven’t seen it already) from Oscilloscope will be put on the new 6 second video Twitter based app Vine.
We’re not exactly sure how all of this will play out or how much growing pains we’ll go through, but the once very segmented realms of movies, television, and the Internet are melding together, which is good, we believe, in the long run.
