An award-winning series from Channel 101’s short film contest in the early 2000s. It mocks the soap opera television genre and satirized life in Malibu, California. There were seven episodes filmed, with an eighth episode “apology” also submitted after the creators decided to end the series. The original run was created by The Lonely Island; and starred Andy Samberg, Jorma Taccone and Sarah Chalke. The original series was directed by Akiva Schaffer.
The Lonely Island’s website references this series as “vintage” and cites The ‘Bu as an example of their early work.
Three more episodes were filmed after the original cast abandoned the project, bringing the total number of episodes to 11, until the show was “cancelled” in April, 2005.
