In an era of all this tired ass reality tv, it is good to see that scripted tv is starting to make a small comeback, slowly but surely. Allow me to put on my accountant hat for just a moment. For those of you who would like to see the total eradication of reality tv, don’t hold your breath. Reality tv is dirt cheap to produce in relation to scripted television and the return on investment is HUGE. Let’s face it, scripted shows like Scandal are a gift from the TV Gods and not the norm. I said all that to say… I don’t know, I lost my train of thought.
BROS BEFORE HOS is a television pilot presentation about what it’s like to fall in love in this crazy world we live in now. The series is a semi-autobiographical comedy about three brothers, two straight, one gay, each dealing with modern-day issues in Los Angeles while trying to find love, but screwing shit up along the way.
WHY WAS THE TITLE “BROS BEFORE HOS” CHOSEN?
Because we liked it and thought it was funny. At its heart, this is a family show about three brothers who will never let anyone – guy or girl – come in between their bond. No, we’re not calling women “hos,” but we thought this would be a catchy title to grab people’s attention. Now, if a network wants to make our little show, and feels we should change the title, then we’d be down to having that conversation.
WHAT’S A PILOT PRESENTATION?
Well, a pilot presentation is a “sizzle reel” of sorts that’s intended to show the world and the powers that be what this show would look like if it were on an actual television network. It’s like a “mini TV episode.”
