[PILOT] There's Nick Pavano and Tim Kornblum. Two unique, for lack of a better word, independent filmmakers. Along with their lovably outspoken, yet constantly paranoid cinematographer, they partner up and begin production on a film every Summer. This year, rather than a short, they plan to tackle a feature-length film-noir, the most complex script they'd ever written. A movie that is much bigger than they are. After jumping the gun on a seemingly smooth pitch to their long-time producer, Matt, they're forced to scramble together a film-making "dream team". This means finding a crew and supporting cast, but most importantly, tracking down soap opera star Joe Sernio to play the lead role.
