Tommy and Gary are criminals engaging in grand thefts in order to make ends meet. They are opportunists and have no fear. After a routine robbery goes awry, the friends are forced to put their criminal activity behind them. As Tommy’s relationship flourishes with his new girlfriend Scarlet, his economic hardships become obvious.

The Hollywood Reporter: HDNet Acquires Acclaimed Web Series ‘Goodnight Burbank’

By +Kim Sherrell

If you’ve ever worked on a sitcom in someone’s garage until 3:00 or 4:00 in the morning, you’ll forgive my brief lapse into a huge amount of NERD PRIDE right now. Huzzah!!!!!

The “first ever half-hour comedy made for the web” just became “the first ever half-hour comedy made for the web picked up by TV,” said showrunner +Hayden Black.

Hayden created the show and stars alongside Laura Silverman with guest appearances by Dominic Monaghan, John Barrowman and a great cast of accomplished actors in this unique and quirky show about fictional newscasters. I hope you’ll tune in and watch Season 1 beginning Oct 12. I had a blast working with Hayden and his fantastic cast and crew. Hayden is a very funny man, as you might know from reading his highly acclaimed Twitter feed.

+He is also on Google+ so please go circle him up. And, if you know +Mark Cuban, please tell him he has great taste in TV shows!

Ai Weiwei is arguably the most internationally celebrated Chinese artist of the modern era. The inscrutable bearded visionary burst onto the scene with vast conceptual installations such as his eight million hand-painted ceramic sunflower seeds inside Tate Modern, and went on to design the iconic Bird’s Nest stadium for the Beijing Olympics. But at heart, Ai Weiwei is a troublemaker with a serious agenda…
