Week #1 Show Teaser Killing It

"Killing It" is a half hour dark comedy about three immoral friends who've been given the power of death by a retiring grim reaper. Every episode guarantees at least one hilarious and hugely inappropriate death; everyone dies at some point, so nothing is off limits. The lessons and morals our main characters learn will be completely misguided. We promise. Let's watch people die together.

Synopsis

Imagine a show where characters never feel bad about picking people to die and you never feel bad for laughing about it. This is “Killing It”, a half hour dark comedy about three immoral friends who’ve been given the power of death by a retiring grim reaper. Every episode of “Killing It” is guaranteed to feature at least one hilarious and hugely inappropriate death. That couple who won’t shut up about their adopted newborn? A smartass ten-year old? Everyone dies at some point, so nothing is off limits! “Killing It” is a show about life and death, but it's not a story about morals. Any lessons our main characters learn will be completely misguided. We promise. Let’s watch people die together.

Writer, Showrunner

My name is Ryan Bright and I've had numerous screenplays produced; my latest ('Til Death) recently screened at the Cannes International Film Festival. After my last two dramatic scripts involved children in peril, I decided to branch out and kill kids comedically.

    Great and unique idea! At least I have never seen anything like it before. I am eager to see the resulting TV-show!

    Good luck!

    This is all on the premise, execution is still a big mystery.

    The Hype It video and sell sheet have really helped me come to terms with this project's subject matter. I'm sure the live stream event will bring out the bright side of death even more.

    I like the dark comedy, but having trouble seeing how this will develop, and I feel like it does what has been done with Monty Python, South Park and the Simpsons, but not quite as funny… I see the potential though!

    I would give it more if the grim reaper idea hadn't already been done many times. But I am still excited to see your take on it!

    Completely unfunny, poorly made and sick. There is nothing funny about killing a 10 year old. Maybe I am missing something but it actually bothers me. Considering that 2 million children....oh forget it. My only 1 that I have given is to you, if that tells you anything.

    Awesome, versatile concept could be taken in a lot of different directions, possibly even multiple formats for episodes to follow, whether more story-arcing, game-show-like, or vignettes.

    Dynamic. Something Canadian television has never seen.
