365 days of Sci-Fi (Archive)

From the mind behind the mega-hit Syfy show you’ve probably never heard of (EUREKA) comes a tribute to all those no-budget Syfy original movies and the “so bad, they’re good” films that inspired them. Move over Roger Corman, step back Ed Wood, make way on your weekend programming schedule Mr. Stern, because here comes Andrew Cosby’s 365 DAYS OF SCI-FI.

And it’s all happening here! Each day, your friends at CHUD will bring you a brand new bad movie pitch — the best of the worst title Cosby can come up with, no matter where he’s at or what he’s doing, rain or shine, drunk or sober. That’s a whole year of the quality concepts you’ve come to expect from the network that brought you MANSQUITO and SHARKTOPUS.

And now… DAY TWENTY-SEVEN:

“I grew up on Monty Python and always wondered what would happen if they’d turned their attention on Dante Alighieri’s Divine Comedy.  I like to think it might have gone a little something like this…

- Andy Cosby

Paradise gets lost.

Pitch:

Stressed out, bored to un-death and complaining that a monkey could do his job, Satan decides take a long overdue vacation from the eternal torments of the damned and hands over control of all nine levels of hell to the next simpleton sinner who happens to cross his path, a witless slacker named Monty Goldfarb.  Once in charge, Monty decides to make a few changes and spruce the place up a bit, quickly turning hell from the worst place imaginable into a virtual paradise, thus sparking a war with the Heavenly Host, who isn’t at all happy that people are now having trouble deciding where they really want to spend eternity.

Nick Says: I think it will be a huge boon for Skeet Ulrich to repair his image in this role. That said, I’m not sure Kerry Conran’s going to be able to create a good facsimile of Hell on his 2008 IBM Thinkpad. I guess we’ll find out.
