Growing Up Movies (Episodes 1 & 3)
Inspired by childhood videos shot in the late 1980s, “Growing Up Movies” is a new series featuring home video footage shot by kids who grew up to be actors, directors or writers. The show utilizes the old footage along with original cast members, now adults – reprising their old roles. Our first episodes are a spoof comedy law show following up on a story, which is 31 years old. In 1989, a wager is made on a baseball game between two 12-year-old friends. After the game is over, the loser adolescent welches on the debt, before discovering that the other kid’s true identity is that of a demon straight from hell! Chaos ensues and it’s all captured on video. Flash-forward to present day and after all these years, the case has still not been resolved. This experimental web series joins members of the original “cast” (who were young kids when the old movies were shot) with talented comedians + YouTube and social media stars playing the lawyers, arbitrator, host, and witnesses. With a retro look, thrown back to the late 1980s, Assholes In Arbitration pokes fun at old daytime shows like “The People’s Court,” while using the original videos as evidence in a legal showdown that spans the decades.
