Michael Wilson, President of Atoz Productions, announced today the completion of production of the pilot, and launch of the website for the new, testosterone-fueled, and guy-branded sketch comedy series: "The Men's Room."
The weekly comedy series features a talented and break-out cast culled from such notable comedy troupes as Improv Olympic, The Second City, The Upright Citizens Brigade, and The Groundlings, and is described by Wilson as a sketch-comedy show "By guys, for guys -And everyone who likes sketch comedy."
The focused production makes no compromises or excuses for its decidedly "Gents" point of view, targeting and scoring a direct bull's-eye for the extremely coveted, and currently disenfranchised 18-49 male television audience.
The pilot episode for the series delivers on its mission statement by creating an original and unique brand of Live, sketch-comedy with pointed and riotous vignettes such as: two "Jersey Shore" types attempting to pick up women at a Widowed Mother Support group; a sexually adventurous couple trying "new things" in the bedroom; a commercial spoof for an absurdly too versatile product called KWEE; and one of the show's funniest re-occurring segments called: "Bad Ideas" -which might be better named: "1001 Things All Guys Should Never Try," and hysterically lives up to its name.
The comedy series will be shopped shortly to broadcasters, and the pilot episode can currently be screened at the production's website: The Men's Room
The series stars: Cooper Barnes, T'Shaun Barrett, Scott Beehner, Robert Belushi, Sitara Falcon, Mark Gagliardi, Marta McGonagle, Jo Newman, Bruce Wexler, and was created by and executive produced by veteran sketch-comedy, and Emmy-nominated television producer Michael Wilson, whose credits include "Saturday Night Live" and "Politically Incorrect."
Production trivia note: The series creatively, and ironically pairs a Wilson and Belushi together once again on a sketch comedy show, as Michael's father, acclaimed television director Dave Wilson, had worked with cast member Robert Belushi's late uncle John Belushi, and Robert's father Jim Belushi as cast members during the early years of Saturday Night Live.
