    David Fincher’s HBO Comedy ‘Living On Video’ Picked Up To Series

    by Nellie Andreeva   May 4, 2015 10:30am 

     

    Everyone continues to be mum on David Fincher’s Living On Video, which is yet to be acknowledged by HBO, but I’ve learned that the period comedy quietly has been picked up to series by the network. I had heard that the project filmed two episodes in lieu of a pilot, and the network has ordered 8 more for a 10-episode first-season run. HBO declined comment.

     

    Set in 1983 Los Angeles, Living On Video revolves around the players of the then-exploding music video industry — directors, record executives and crew members, many of them dabbling in drugs — through the eyes of a newcomer, Robby (Charlie Rowe). Robby is a wide-eyed guy who drops out of college and drives to Hollywood with dreams of directing a sci-fi epic and lands a job as a PA for a company making music videos. Believed to be co-starring in the secret project are Sam Page, Jason Flemyng, Corbin Bernsen, Kerry Condon and Elizabeth Lail.

    Fincher, who directed the first episodes, is revisiting his music video director roots with the comedy, written by Rich Wilkes (xXx) and Bob Stephenson, a friend of Fincher’s from his music video days, based on an idea by Fincher.

    Living On Video gives The Social Network and Gone Girl director Fincher a second on-air series. He also executive produces and directed the first two episodes of Netflix drama House of Cards.

    I’m here for it! Doesn’t he have another HBO series in the work or is this it? I thought he was working with Gillian Flynn on it

    Yes. That’s Utopia.

    HBO is soon going to be the David Fincher network and I’m so ok with that!

    Fincher is busy setting up franchises! (see what I did there?)  I’m really pumped for Utopia as Fincher is directing Season 1 in full, so I’m guessing he WON’T be doing that here.   This does sound like a promising series as well, though.

    David Fincher’s HBO Comedy Series ‘Videosyncrazy’ Hits Pause Button

    by Nellie Andreeva   June 11, 2015 6:14pm

     

     

    The shrouded in secrecy David Fincher HBO comedy series Videosynchrazy (fka Living on Video) has shut down production, I have learned. Noone is commenting but I hear filming on the project, which I hear was in the middle of Episode 4 or Episode 5, has stopped. While word is that some cast members had been told that the show was not going forward, I hear that the series is not dead but taking a break. I hear the decision to stop was made after HBO saw some complete episodes. I hear Fincher had asked for some time to look at the cuts and decide on the series’ creative direction. There may be some script retooling.

    Set in 1983 Los Angeles, Living On Video, which had a 10-episode order, revolves around the players of the then-exploding music video industry — directors, record executives and crew members, many of them dabbling in drugs — through the eyes of a newcomer, Robby (Charlie Rowe). Robby is a wide-eyed guy who drops out of college and drives to Hollywood with dreams of directing a sci-fi epic and lands a job as a PA for a company making music videos. Believed to be co-starring in the series are Sam Page, Jason Flemyng, Corbin Bernsen, Kerry Condon and Elizabeth Lail.

    Fincher, who directed multiple episodes, is revisiting his music video director roots with the comedy, written by Rich Wilkes (xXx) and Bob Stephenson, a friend of Fincher’s from his music video days, based on an idea by Fincher.

    This is one of two projects Fincher has at HBO, along with drama Utopia.

    That sounds concerning.  Not a fan of the title ‘Videosynchrazy’
