Week #1 Show Teaser The Loft

Welcome to The Loft, a mockumentary-styled show where you join our 3 main characters on their journey to fame. There's Yonni - the wide-eyed comedian, Ace - the unsatisfied magician, and Nico - the underrated musician. Nico generously agrees to take Ace and Yonni into his loft apartment, but no one is prepared for the amusement that comes from this trifecta of talent under one roof.

Synopsis

Have you ever asked a struggling artist what keeps them going? Why don’t they just get “a real job”? Welcome to The Loft, a mockumentary-styled show where you join our 3 main characters on their individual struggles to get noticed for their talents. Enter Yonni, the wide-eyed comedian who can’t even book a spot at an open mic night. Ace, his best friend, who is tired of being a birthday party magician. And Nico, Ace’s older brother who has already achieved fame and fortune in his music career, but at the price of selling out. Nico generously agrees to take Ace and Yonni into his loft apartment, but no one is prepared for the amusement that comes from this trifecta of talent under one roof.

    I think this might have potential, and I do love magic. Not sure if there's a plan to include some ladies in the picture ... a kind of Big Bang meets Friends vibe, with a modern hip Toronto feel ... ya that sounds funny

    The concept of the film is what has me pretty intrigued. Hopefully the character building won't take a back seat if this project continues on the competition, Wish you all the best.

    This looks really good. I could definitely see this show going somewhere. This teaser already shows two qualities of a great show; big dreams and best friends. I really hope to see this on tv.
