Comedy Dynamics’ New Pilot ‘Discontinued’ Pilot To Air On The CW Network On December 16th!

Comedy Dynamics’ New Pilot ‘Discontinued’ Pilot To Air On The CW Network On December 16th!

Discontinued, a Comedy Dynamics pilot is set to premiere on The CW Network December 16, 2018 (9:30pm-10:00pm ET). Discontinued is a funny and informative look at the world’s most famous – and sometimes infamous – discontinued foods, toys, customs and businesses. Set in a mystical warehouse, YouTube star and self-proclaimed “black nerd” Andre Meadows takes viewers down memory lane recounting the rise and fall of these fallen pop culture titans, with the help of surprise special guests, “insider” experts, and a bevy of hilarious comics.

Creator, and director of the show Brian Volk-Weiss, alongside executive producers Robin Henry and Cisco Henson, brings this homage to nostalgia from the same people behind the Netflix hit docu-series The Toys That Made Us – a series featuring the minds behind history’s most iconic toys franchises that discuss the rise and fall of the industry’s billion dollar creations.

“It’s been a joy and honor working with The CW to bring to life a show that I’ve wanted to make for a very long time. Prepare yourselves for a whole lot of nostalgia bombs!” said Brian Volk-Weiss, CEO of Comedy Dynamics.

On February 26, 1994 at the age of 32, he died of pancreatic cancer in Little Rock, Arkansas. In subsequent years, his work gained a large amount of acclaim and he developed a strong following among a broad range of audiences around the world. He was named the fourth greatest comedian of all time by London’s Channel 4 and ranked at 19 by Comedy Central.

Colin Quinn: Unconstitutional

Comedy fans take note! Comedy legend Colin Quinn’s latest project, Colin Quinn: Unconstitutional, is now streaming exclusively on Netflix. The project was executive produced by Jerry Seinfeld.

The comedy legend’s historically themed, Unconstitutional, covers the creation of the United States Constitution and its effect on the American psyche. Quinn examines how the three branches of government are similar to people in a bar, why most U.S. presidents are unattractive, and how the Kardashians reflect on our country.

Colin Quinn recently played Amy Schumer’s father, Gordon, in the popular romantic comedy Trainwreck. Other film credits include Grown Ups, Grown Ups 2, and A Night at the Roxbury. He has also appeared multiple times on the television series Inside Amy Schumer, Girls, and was a regular on Saturday Night Live from 1995-2000. Quinn and Seinfeld previously worked together on Colin Quinn: Long Story Short, a one-man show about world history that was presented on Broadway in 2010.

“Nothing is off-limits here,” says Brian Volk-Weiss, president of Comedy Dynamics. “You don’t have to be a history buff to find this show brilliant.” 

Colin Quinn: Unconstitutional is directed by Jay Chapman, and written and performed by Colin Quinn. Jerry Seinfeld, Mike Berkowitz, Brian Stern, Cisco Henson, Jack Vaughn, and Brian Volk-Weiss executive produced. Kieran Dotti is production supervisor for Comedy Dynamics.
