Our dead pilot this month was written by Brian Gallivan (The McCarthy’s, Happy Endings). It’s called Mr. Joyce’s Opus and it centers around Chuck Joyce, a Catholic school teacher, who throws out his curriculum to connect with his students despite the fact that they’re all horrible little monsters.

Andrew interviews Brian regarding his career, the development process for this pilot, and how he handles network notes calls. You’ll also listen to a live table read of Mr. Joyce’s Opus, performed by some of today's funniest comedic actors.  
  
Come to our next live show at The USC Comedy Festival on November 4th at 4pm. Because we love our fans sooooo much, this show is completely free! We’re reading a pilot called American Alien written by Sierra Teller Ornelas (Superstore, Splitting Up Together).

Wild Tales

This week we're joined by friend of the podcast, writer and director Sarah Adina Smith. You may know her from her feature film Buster's Mal Heart starring Rami Malek. But she's also directed episodes of 'Wrecked', 'Room 104', and 'Legion'. Sarah was actually the very first guest on our pilot episode of the podcast, so it's so good to have her back to discuss Damián Szifron's Wild Tales. The film is made up of six short films of comical revenge. Sarah and April dive in to what makes this movie "clean" and "perfect" - as they call it. Sarah reveals that she shares some similar obsessive qualities with director Szifron. She also talks about how a location is just another form of casting. This episode is a really fun discussion about following your instincts when creating art.

You can watch Buster's Mal Heart on Netflix now.

And if you haven't seen it yet, go watch Wild Tales
