Overview

Slug Brothers is a light-hearted, zany comedy series. Each 11 minute episode will feature the misadventures of three lazy, disgustingly messy, giant slugs. As the name suggests, most of the episodes are comedically based on authentic emotions experienced by siblings.

Ernest

Ernest

Ernest is the oldest and most cranky brother. He works at a boring office job, which makes him think he is above his two unemployed brothers, but he is just as lazy as they are.

Elmer

Elmer is the type of guy who would rather come up with a scheme or cheat to get what he wants, always failing to realise that it would be less effort to go about things honestly.

Garth

Garth is the youngest, silliest, and least intelligent of the slugs. He gets dragged into Elmer’s plans, not because he is conniving, but because he wants to be accepted by his brothers.

Why Now?

Slug Brothers is intended to work across platforms. Each 11 minute episode can stand on its own as an online webisode or can be combined with another to fill a traditional 22 minute time slot.

Estimated Budget

$20,000 - $30,000 per 11 minute episode. There will be additional costs for puppets and sets; however, the same puppets will be used in each episode and most episodes take place on the same sets. Multiple episodes will be shot at the same time to cut down on costs.
