THE JESSE MILLER TALK SHOW (2011-2012)
The apex of Andre Hyland’s beloved variety show was a scratched Comedy Central pilot. I played talent-booker for the live show (wrangling Chelsea Wolfe, White Arrows, Tearist, Juiceboxxx, Vice Cooler, Evan Voytas, Bart Davenport, and more) before convincing Wavves to join for the taping.
Imagine if the team behind MTV’s The State made their very own Paris, je t’aime — an anthology film that supplants all that touchy-feely drama with dark absurdism. In Holiday Road, a baker’s dozen of strange directorial minds take us on a hilarious and disturbing journey through a single year, one holiday at a time. Not featuring the music of Lindsey Buckingham, but we tried.
Someone is killing L.A.’s hipsters when a crime-scene cleaner with Sherlockian tendencies, finds an unusual clue in the demo CD of an indie band.
