Week #1 Show Teaser Cooked

In this pitch, writers/creators Vince and Grayson, explain what the sitcom "Cooked" is all about; why they should write it, and why it's new and like nothing ever seen before. No more 'four friends in an apartment', put something new on your plate!

Cooked is a Dark comedy about the lives and fables of employees working at restaurant Shaq Blasterz. Main characters Kevin and Graham are witnesses to the crazy events happening in the restaurant. The working conditions are torturous and inhumane but Head Chef Marvin gets away with his evil doings. After a seemingly uninformative interview with Marvin and an odd first impression with the kitchen staff, Kevin and Graham are put into their first dinner service which is like nothing anyone has ever seen before… in a kitchen at least. All hell breaks loose, revealing the truth behind the Shaq Blasterz kitchen. Both have surreal PTSD dreams that night and wake in fear of their the next shift.

    Who hasn't sat in any number of restsurants and wondered, looking back over their shoulder, peering down an isle through a greasy window or swinging door, what the hell is going on in there? All the ellements of tradgedy, comedy, and a foodie adventure, washed down in the perfect setting. Great concept, and like food itself, endless possibilities. Have your cake and eat it...endless seconds!

    That wasn't funny at all. And what was up with the black frames in between some of your cuts? They weren't long enough to be on purpose. Don't forget to watch through your video before exporting! Rookie mistake.

    There may be something there, so I'm following, but the trailer was more pitch video than actual teaser.

    Really clever and relatable. I would love to watch this on CBC after my shift is over.

    It looks lik
    e you really thought out the concept to keep it on for a few seasons, which I think other pitches are lacking... I'm really excited to see this go far.
