ANOTHER ALMOST...

We had been contacted awhile back by Warner Bros. - they had come across our vinyl toy "Crush" and wanted to use it as set dressing in a new pilot they were doing called "Spaced". turns out the pilot was pitched to Fox and they turned it down, which is too bad, cuz it looked pretty funny.

Shit! I hope they don't blame us.


Primetime Pilot Panic: Fox Nixes 'Spaced'
UPDATE: Despite all the buzz, and exec producer McG, and a "phenomenal cast", Spaced is a no-go, I'm told. FBC just turned thumbs down on the WBTV/Wonderland pilot, which was adapted from the successful British TV series.

i am sure it wasn't because of "CRUSH". he is a superstar! so sorry to hear they decided against it. perhaps there is something even bigger in the making for "CRUSH". good luck!

yeah, it probably would not have worked in the US as well as it did in the uk. but totally check out the show! it was done by the guys who did shaun of the dead and hot fuzz.

i'm rather glad it was nixed but i understand your disappointment.

I so loved that series in the UK...SPACED saved so many of my after work evenings when I was working in London in 2001. What a hoot.
