This Amazing Miniseries Satirises Adland as The Office Did 9-5ers

Community Films’ directorial collective JEAN and director Pam Thomas join forces for web comedy series 'Commercials'

This Amazing Miniseries Satirises Adland as The Office Did 9-5ers
Community Films’ directorial collective JEAN and director Pam Thomas have joined forces to create 'Commercials,' a comedic web series about the humorous, ego crushing, overanalysed silliness that plagues the world of commercial filmmaking and everyone involved.

“As commercial directors and former advertising creatives, we’ve experienced hundreds of completely ridiculous moments during productions where we looked at each other and said, ‘this needs to be a show,’” says Natalie Prisco of JEAN.


EPISODE 101: ETHNICALLY AMBIGUOUS: Nate, Maggie and the agency team try to figure out how to navigate an unexpected client request.

Seizing on the seemingly important, but altogether ridiculous scenarios that inherently go along with making commercials, “Commercials” peels back the curtain on an industry that everyone is familiar with, but very few know much about.

“The world of commercial making is such a unique industry that feels so ripe for satire,” says Eric Eckelman of JEAN


EPISODE 102: REALLY GREAT MEETING: Nate and Jay may or may not have totally nailed their Snackyz presentation.

Told from the unique point of view of an eccentric group of egomaniacal, yet wildly insecure commercial directors and their production company Bird Films, 'Commercials' satirises the world of production as The Office did the world of 9-5ers.

Each episode gives a glimpse into the various aspects of commercial making and stages of production, leaving nobody unskewered in the process.


EPISODE 103: MANTRUM: Nate uses the oldest trick in the book to lure the out of his mind director Axel Roundhouse back to set.

“We’d love Commercials to give viewers a sneak peek into what we love so much about our business and hope they find it as hilarious and fun as we do,” says Pam Thomas.

“We’re thrilled we finally decided to make that show,” adds Armand Prisco of Jean.


EPISODE 104: FULL CLOCKS - Directing team Tom and Dave learn the art of the full clock.


EPISODE 105: GUYS AND DOLLS: A seemingly mundane Pre-Production meeting goes off the rails.


EPISODE 106: BREAK ROOM: Axel meets directing team Tom and Dave and tells them all about his new, top secret project.
