Storyline

Vic Morgenstein (formerly Vic Morgan) has been distributing gruesome Asian horror schlock and soft-core smut for years. His flagship video series, "Drunk Chicks" 1 through 6, consists entirely of inebriated young women exposing their breasts. These low rent titles have earned Vic a comfortable living, and a less-than savory reputation; everywhere he goes, young men recognize his face from the DVD cases and lift their shirts to him in salute. Vic was willing to accept his complete lack of respectability so long as the money kept rolling in. But that all changed when picked up a low budget, art-house movie called The Unreasonable Truth About Butterflies at a second rate film festival. Butterflies, directed by total unknown Rufus Marquez, went on to become something of darling on the indie festival circuit. Vic got hooked on respectability and came to realize his new dream: to produce and distribute "respectable" indie films. The only snag is Vic is bereft of things like taste and vision...

Is being Jewish the answer to his dreams?
18 September 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Hilarious show. This is one of those gems that you feel truly lucky to have stumbled across. The show follows recent Judaic convert Vic Morgan(now Morganstein), a former smut peddler who is trying to go legit in the movie business. Of course Vic will have to run the gamut of problems including foreign investors, temper tantrums, and a very special request to cast a porn star as his movie's lead. Will Vic make it?

The uptight producer with a history of alcoholism, the director who thinks winning some film festival makes him a commodity, the idiot actor who actually is dumber than he acts, all of these spot-on character portrayals make this series one of the funniest on television. Give this one half a chance and it will surely soon be listed amongst your favorites.
