Hollywood, CA (PRWEB) October 17, 2012
Wize Guys—an online comedy network aimed at providing progressive, over-the-top comedy to viewers—reached a milestone today, receiving over 1 million views on the website in its first two months of operation. In celebration of this feat, the first episode of the network’s first episodic original series, “Geo’s Pizza” is premiering today.
“Geo’s Pizza” revolves around 3 friends who inherit a pizzeria from one of the character’s uncle’s. The guys barely have time to celebrate and settle in to business before an explosion rocks the pizzeria, blowing it to pieces. The new owners find themselves in an even deeper predicament—as the police suspect them of masterminding the explosion.
With comedic, mysterious twists and turns, “Geo’s Pizza” is sure to keep viewers on their toes. The series—which consists of 10 episodes—will premiere each Wednesday. Each week, viewers will have the opportunity to become familiar with a talented cast, including: Geo Santini (Geo); Karan Soni, (ASHEED); Jason Hice (RAYMOND); Kevin Interdonato (DETECTIVE JAMES) and Matt Corboy (DETECTIVE EARL).
In addition to new programming, Wize Guys also announced today the “Make The Cut Wize Guys Comedy Festival,” a ten-week contest encouraging viewers to submit comedic videos for review by industry professionals (Hollywood agents, and producers). The top videos will be selected to compete in a ten-week tournament on the Wize Guys site.
Each week, selected videos will go up against the previous week’s champion and the video with the most views and likes will continue on to following week’s competition. The grand prize winner will have the opportunity to meet Hollywood agents and managers, plus have their video premiere on the front page of Wize Guys Comedy. There will also be prizes for runners-up, including: iPads, gift cards, and more.
As the network continues to grow, viewers can expect to learn more about exciting developments. “Our goal is to continue to provide hilarious, creative content for our viewers,” says Todd Chamberlain, co-creator of Wize Guys. “We are thrilled to have reached 1 million views, and I am especially excited to premiere, “Geo’s Pizza,” says Geo Santini, founder of Wize Guys.
