Director Statement

When developing The Bank I knew I wanted a pure, slapstick style comedy. So, I thought, when was the last time I was genuinely laughing, to the point where my belly hurt, I was immediately transported back to the early 90’s. So I though, “I need to bring it back, but with a modern twist,” so I started with color, to enhance the visual aspect of this new age TV sitcom. Then the characters,I believe every character in  every scene should have a tone that carries a comedic tone.

Not only did the cast embrace their characters, their own personalities enhanced every scene, bringing The Bank to life.

Once the audience gets the chance to embrace these characters, the shows going to be a success. I want the audience to be transported to a world where they don’t have to take things to seriously and I’m doing that with The Bank.

There’s staples in every decade, Married With Children, Home Improvement,Elf, Modern Family, Arrested Development and The Office.

The Bank, will be another one to add. Enjoy the show!
