There’s nothing like working with creative people you love! We reunited with the incredibly talented Mad Cow team on a brand new television pilot for Nickelodeon called “The 5th Hour.”
The approach was brilliantly simple but hilarious: add a “Daily Show” take to the ubiquitous morning talk show format. We took over a studio familiar with daytime television sets, rocked four cameras and a Technocrane for a multi cam shoot, and then unleashed the comedic talents of Lauren Weedman and Molly Erdman on a host of real world guests.
