The Unemployed – TV Sizzle Reel

We made a sizzle reel to pitch “The Unemployed” for TV! It best represents the overall arc of the web series’s first season, showing what it is and where it is going. So, there are a few clips to tease episodes 8, 9, and 10… Since the Pink Slip Mixer, Oskar, Crystal, and Kent have had a rough 72 hours!

In addition to the sizzle reel, we also have the TV pilot script ready to go!

The Unemployed Season Finale or Bust

We are currently writing episodes 8, 9, and 10 to bring the first season of “The Unemployed” web TV series to a close! Production on all three episodes is slated for the end of the summer. Needless to say, we’re all extremely excited! From production technique to storytelling method, this show has come a long way since the first few episodes. The madcap adventures of Oskar, Crystal, and Kent have evolved (and will continue to evolve) in some very interesting aspects…

Though we’ve been on a brief hiatus since episode 7, we’ve been exceedingly busy! The Group Collectively continues to work on numerous projects in various stages of development. Additionally, Justy and Jon wrapped on the indie, thriller feature film, “Territory 8,” with Emmy Award-nominated director Kelly Schwarze. Despite our increasingly active schedules, our priority is to continue to create quality episodes of “The Unemployed.”
