Luke Markachek: Animal Exorcist is part of a web series called Up Fronts, spoofing primetime TV show lineups and the networks that foist them.
Michelle Maryk created the series and collaborated with Mike Shapiro in staging a multi-media live comedy show running in New York, LA and Chicago (premiered NYC in summer 2010). Up Fronts lampoons the TV network event of the same name where TV Execs pimp out their new Fall TV line-ups, trotting out any tv, movie or music pop star, no matter how on-parole, messed-up or post-rehab they may be.
The (NON-rehabbing) cast includes Amy Landecker, star of the Coen brother's A Serious Man; Jeff Hiller of 30 Rock, and Ugly Betty; Matt Ballard of Wainy Days; as well as Katherine Maughan, Lloyd Porter and Henry Zebrowski from the award-winning sketch group, Murderfist.
