Synopsis

Unlike most sketch shows, Human Town is not an assortment of unrelated sketches. Every scenario and character is part of a united storyworld, where all sketches intertwine and flow into one other inside the bizarre city of HumanTown. Events in one sketch will often impact characters and environments in future sketches, creating a continuous universe for viewers to follow and invest in. Think travelling through "Springfield" with the freedom to leave the Simpsons alone for a while. Our goal is to introduce a cohesive brand of narrative and cinematic style to the structure of a sketch comedy show, pushing the boundaries of what 'sketch' comedy really is.

    I don't see the direction of this show, I thought I understood it originally but then after your differentiator video it left a lot up in the air and that didn't sit well with me. It felt like you were trying to appeal to the masses and leave it vague.
