The Producers 2: The Campaigners

Great minds think alike.

Back in early 2016, when the idea of a Trump presidency was merely a joke, I wrote, produced, and edited this satirical trailer of a Producers sequel.

Fast forward a month.

Jimmy Kimmel Live aired almost the identical sketch as part of its post-Oscars special. The similarity to my sketch caught the attention of the Toronto Star and the National Post.

Turned out it was just a coincidence (we actually filmed the same weekend). 

Epilogue: 6 months later I was invited to submit a packet to Kimmel. I’m still waiting for a call.
