3. Full Synopsis – what´s the Sitcom about in detail?

„So … brothers“ is a sitcom with two half-brothers of the same age (28 years) who don’t know each other at the beginning of the show. Both inherit the legendary „Turtle Records“ studio with its only permanent resident, a tortoise named Janis, from her late father. His last wish declares the brothers to be legal guardians of the small fossil: If something bad happens to Janis, the old music studio should be auctioned off for charitable purposes.

Pilot Episodes are done, let’s bring it on to the TV!

We are a team of young, creative TV-professionals : Writers, producers, camera-operators, editors, musicians and actors based in Hamburg, Germany. Together we have pre-produced the first two pilot episodes for a new Rock n Roll -TV sitcom: “So … Brothers”. We all have a musical background of some sort, so our writers know what absurd drama the engineering of a hit single can create. It is a new sitcom produced with the Internet as broadcasting medium in mind. The setting in a sound studio creates the unique opportunity to have “real” current chart-bands as “clients” behind our microphones. This provides not just promising cross-promotion-options with the music-industry, but a sitcom-based-platform from which to launch real newcomers into actual life as part of the story.
