ORDERED TO PILOT

  • Genre: Comedy (Single Camera)
  • Logline: Set in the world of the after dark, independent news video hunters of Los Angeles. While these "independent filmmakers" are considered just a notch below the paparazzi on the food chain, they have even less shame and nothing will stop them in their quest to hawk shocking footage to news outlets. There's not a car crash, police chase, celebrity DUI, convenience store smash and grab, baby bear in a swimming pool, or taco truck fire they won't race to. Every night out on the streets, there are winners and losers. But, mostly losers. And this is their story.
  • Cast: Rob Huebel, Cathy Shim
