My first TV pitch ever. 2005. I pitched this to MTV2 as a way to package an animated sketch comedy show. I was ashamed of this for a long time based on the radio silence I received after pitching it. I watch it now and think it might be the best thing I’ve ever made/ ever will make.
The show would have featured a “cheers” like brain nugget bar run by two bartenders that serve “brain nuggets” AND the inner business goings-on of “Nugget Corp” the company that makes the brain nuggets, run by a lunatic and his tortured partner. (The guys from “Friends and Lovers”)
When you drink a brain nugget a short sketch happens in your mind. Always pretty short in length.
I swear to god any similarities to the kids in the hall’s “Brain Candy” is 100% unintentional. I should probably watch that movie again just to make sure this isn’t too similar.
