Action Auto

Our very own TDG admin Turner Young (responsible for the Friday news briefs...and yes, I do hold him responsible) has more talents than he broadcasts here - in the bright light of day he has also been known to write and direct film projects. 'Action Auto' is a new web-series that he wrote, shot, directed and edited with 3 friends, "about the worst used car salesmen on the worst used car lot in the worst part of Los Angeles and their desperate attempts to sell a car".

Here's the trailer for the series (consider yourself warned - NSFW language and sex jokes!!), or you can view a larger version direct at YouTube:

Great production values, it's all very professional...where's Turner Young and his camera when Bigfoot and UFOs come knocking?!

I did a search and couldn't find anything.

So, which potential car buyer is played by yourself? ;-)

Nice work, I hope it gets picked up. Reminds of the time I went to buy my first car... Anyways, you've hit an untapped source of champagne comedy, Turner, and it's something that hasn't been done before to my knowledge. Best of luck with it.

Have you seen Homeless James Bond? I don't watch a lot of comedy, Greg's witty one-liners usually get me through the week, but this had me cracking up, it's brilliant. Not as good as Action Auto though *cough*.

So glad you dug the trailer! The whole show actually sprang from stories of everyone's first car buying nightmares. I mean, no matter where you live or what language you speak, used car salesmen are truly universal - so why not make fun of 'em?

No cameos in this round of episodes, but all the writer / directors plan on playing customers in the next batch ;)

The first full episode should be up in January - Stay tuned!

Is that Eric Price from MadTV I see? Next thing you know, you'll have your very own TV series! Keep up the good work.

We were lucky enough to cast Eric a few months before Mad TV realized he was lightning in a bottle. He had people laughing from word one, day one...

Thanks for checking out the trailer! Feel free to send along the link - Full episodes coming soon!
