And We’re Clear!

78.jpgThat’s TV talk for we finished shooting the pilot for WTTW’s new comedy show “IL-Informed”. Thanks to all who came to the live taping yesterday. The show came together great over the 3 days of shooting and we just might have a show on our hands! We loved watching the audience react to jokes that we have spent the last couple months putting together. Big thanks to Sarah and Paris for producing the pilot. And the crew too. The Director Jack and the field cameraman Tom, as well as the sound/lightning maestro Danny and the stage manager Bruce. Also, thanks to Rob for the production assistance. The show was shot in Studio A, where the old soundstage performances used to be. Not the new Peter Cetera/Amy Grant versions, but the old ones with Bob Dylan and rock legends. Also, it was the space that Andy Kaufman used for his 1983 “The Andy Kaufman Show”. So it was great to be in the same space where Kaufman pulled off great bits. That felt really good. Our show had a lot of bending TV jokes. Talking to cameras that weren’t there, making jokes about TV conventions and playing with the space (and audience), most of which rarely makes it to the TV we all know. The show airs the week of May 4th. We are going to have a big party to watch it. Mark your calendar – May 10th at the Gall Cab…
