Sometimes at the office I’ll pitch series that sound pretty good to the bosses and they’ll tell me to make a pilot presentation. These days, however, if you can’t put a sponsor onto web series, it’s not going anywhere. That happened to a series I made a few months ago, titled “Wingman, Esquire.”
It’s a series about a lawyer named Phillip Wingman who guys and girls can summon just by shouting, “Counsel!” Phillip solves problems with getting into, maintaining, and ending relationships by citing fictional legal precedents and other tomfoolery. I’ll probably get in trouble for posting this, but take a look. Phillip is played by the very funny Bradley Hasemeyer, the girlfriend is played by Nellie Barnett, and the short is directed by Aaron Brownlee. Enjoy and pass along…who knows? Maybe some brand or sponsor will see this and figure it’s worth a neglible sum.
