Kings of The Inland Empire is a new stop-motion series created by Mark Cope and Carlo Moss, based on their experiences growing up around the various bros and douchebags that populate the inland areas of Southern California.
The best way to think of the show is essentially "Douchebag Beverly Hillbillies." The series centers around Dave, Alex, and Cody, three lifted-truck driving, light-beer guzzling, heavy-dumbbell lifting bros from Chino, and Dave's studious, fresh-out-of college brother, Ryan. The lives of the four young men are turned upside-down when Dave wins the lottery, enabling the guys' bro-iest dreams to become reality. Imagine if you will, luxurious extravagances like:
- A lifted truck built inside of the bed of an even bigger lifted truck!
- A tap in your kitchen that simultaneously dispenses Coors Light AND Monster Energy Fuel!
- A private UFC event staged in your own backyard!
All these and more will be the day-to-day life of Dave and his friends, as they clash with their new well-to-do-neighbors, try to stay true to their roots, and prove that they're more than just a bunch of musclebound idiots who got lucky one night.
The project is currently being developed with Gunpowder & Sky.
