Set in 1983 Los Angeles, Living On Video centers on Bobby, a wide-eyed guy who drops out of college and drives to Hollywood with dreams of directing a sci-fi epic. He lands a job as a PA for a company making music videos. In the vein of HBO’s Entourage, the series revolves around the players of the then-exploding music video industry — directors, record executives and crew members, many of them dabbling in drugs — through the eyes of the newcomer.
David Fincher, director of such hilarious comedies as Gone Girl, Se7en, and The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, is now developing a new half-hour comedy for HBO. Tentatively titled Living on Video, here’s the synopsis:Entourage directed by David Fincher! You know, it sounds on the surface like it makes no sense, but I really do think that Entourage would’ve been greatly improved if E murdered Turtle in a really gruesome fashion. So I’m on board with this.
