Greener Grass Based on a short film of the same name, the small town of Greener
Grass is a living Norman Rockwell painting whose welcome sign boasts
“Nothing bad ever happens here.” However, beneath the town’s gilded
facade lies a world of bad things happening. Starring, written and
executive produced by Upright Citizens Brigade alums Jocelyn DeBoer and
Frank and Lamar Based on the IFC Comedy Crib series, Frank and Lamar are two
best friends who live together and work together as middle school
teachers in New York City. Workplace drama and romance issues cause
havoc in their otherwise smooth friendship so they are forced to decide
whether to stick together or go it alone. Created by and starring Carl
Foreman Jr. and Anthony Gaskins.
Lee’s Kill List Trapped in an oppressive work environment, Lee takes matters into her
own hands by killing the bullies and bosses that threaten her job as a
cleaning solution salesperson. Created, written and directed by Josh
Ruben and Vince Peone (joshandvince.com)
