Annex Films Director Simon Aboud's New Comedy Mini Series Launches

Annex Filmshave announced that director Simon Aboud’s new comedy mini series ‘All You Need Is Me’ has now been launched.

 All You Need Is Me is a comedy drama series about a young band going to Los Angeles and having the full on US rock experience. But it’s not about rock ‘n’ roll and the half-digested clichés taken from bad rock movies. It’s a series that’s infused with humour that highlights the realities of the music industry, from the realization that you can be a hot new name and yet ‘the sweet smell of success’ in reality, is not all it’s cracked up to be. And beyond it all and what really counts, is their relationships with each other, for better or otherwise, they need each other and everything else is gravy… In tone and style, this show has the cracking pace of ‘Entourage’, being both realistic and funny in its depiction of the music business without being harsh and cynical. With a strong supporting cast of real life stars – The Libertines’ Carl Barat, Fall Out Boy’s Pete Wentz, Elvis Costello and James Corden – making cameo appearances creating a show that is both convincing and hilarious in equal measures.

 Five minutes ago, FLYNN SIX were on the verge of being the British music band that time and everyone else had forgotten. But their timing to become ‘up and coming’ for once, could be spot on. It’s the right time, right place…

 Friends from school days, they have lived in each other pockets ever since. They have a charismatic singer JOHNNY – he’s the star –, a smart but controlling writer & guitarist, Stephen and a Bowie obsessed bass player, David. Chris, their manager is out of his depth, but keeping quiet about it. And then there’s PHIL, the best friend who’s along for the ride. Over in Los Angeles, Stacey, a power player, hugely successful manager, has just been fired by her multi-million selling act, at the precise moment that she signs a bells & whistles deal with New Republic Records. Desperately needing an act, she enlists the support of her English pal Tess, who still has connections at the ‘coal face’. Tess is reminded of Johnny and Stephen's band, Flynn Six who are still in search of that elusive record deal…

 All You Need Is Me, directed by Annex Films director SIMON ABOUD and written by producer SIMON HALFON, is a STUDIO+ original creation – in 10 episodes of 10 minutes – found exclusively on the application, following it’s November 7th launch.
