Porn Industry Rallies Behind Unemployed Sex Addict Puppet

Warren The Ape is a spin-off to the short-lived FOX show Greg The Bunny. the show follows the exploits of a down-on-his-luck puppet. it is shot in the documentary style ala The Office and Delocated.

the pilot episode opens with Warren checking himself in to rehab (cue Dr. Drew cameo) Warren has a drug problem, and is currently an unemployed actor. Warren’s nemesis is Chauncey, The Bear. a fellow actor who is auditioning for the same role in a kids cereal commercial. Warren meets a woman at an AA meeting, who used to be a prostitute. he devises a plan to frame Chauncey, by catching him in a sex sting with the hooker.

it’s pretty clear that if you wanna make a big splash with a sitcom pilot these days, you need to put as many porn stars as possible in it. they filmed a few scenes at the AVN Awards in January. Belladonna, Shawna Lenee, Jenny Hendrix, Ron Jeremy, and Manuel Ferrara among others made cameo spots. Alektra Blue and Kaylani Lei are the two girls who accompany Chauncey to the supermarket at Warren’s autograph signing.

since I’ve been to Hollywood…TWICE, within the last year, I recognized a few of the locations. Roosevelt Hotel, where I had drinks with several of my Hollywood showbiz friends. Hollywood Blvd. where they have the star walk of fame, Mann’s Chinese Theatre, and the building where they tape The Jimmy Kimmel Show. I actually know a guy who knows a guy who used to write for that show. Fairfax Avenue, which I walked down several times on my way to get cafe mocha lattes at Starbucks. b/c that’s the place to be seen!

I don’t know how long they can stretch this premise for, but if you throw in a few porn stars to every episode, I will watch. seeing as how this is on MTV, there may be a little more leeway given. I’d say it can go a full 13-episode run, with the possibility for a second season. I give the pilot episode 4 Wicked contract girls…out of 5

    It’s not a cartoon, therefore it may see a 2nd season. General MTV rule is everything dies after 1 season if it’s a cartoon…

    Yea, it was good stuff. Almost a live-action adult cartoon in a way, what with the puppets. Less human emphasis than Greg The Bunny.

    This is actually Warren The Ape’s 4th show, since Greg The Bunny was a public access show long before it was on Fox, and then after [or before?] Fox, Greg The Bunny was a set of IFC movie spoof shorts.
