No indie company in New York has ever tried a 3-camera sitcom pilot before!
Ground UP has produced over 20 plays and musicals in New York. Off Off Hollywood has produced 5 films, and even a TV pilot. But this project is going to take the combined talents of both teams to pull off. With some help from you!
"Shut Up, Astoria" is the story of 6 friends whose lives turned out kind of disappointing. But they have a building in Astoria, and each other. Maybe they can figure out how to be 40 together?
This pilot will be shot LIVE in front of an audience at The Gene Frankel Theatre in Manhattan, November 1st and 2nd. On a full theatrical set, with the cameras rolling.
We're giving people the opportunity of being in the audience for the live taping event, as well as seeing the finished pilot at a VIP screening! Help us create a unique experience here in NYC!
