Well, dontcha just know this is gonna be a laugh riot from that title, right? And yet, MAEATDG (to be displayed this way from now on) is actually going for the yuks, the thinks, and all the feels.

Thomas Mann plays Greg, a high school kid too scared of being judged or hurt to make any real friendships in his life outside of being passingly friendly acquaintances with about everybody. Except for Earl, his childhood friend with whom he has filmed hundreds of pun-based classic film satires, his conversational daily content is sum-uppable in twitter lengths. But then, a girl from his school (Olivia Cooke) is diagnosed with leukemia and his mother orders him to go and spend time with her. Despite themselves, a friendship forms and Greg’s life changes…but will yours?

Chris, Beau and Jenny put their heads together on this one…

Born in the wilds of northern Virginia, in 1992 Chris managed to put all of his survival skills to use and barely escaped with his life to Austin Texas, where ever since he’s dabbled in everything from plumber’s assistant to sandwich maker, from band to bar management. An opportunity to see theatrical release films for free, by becoming a critic on a local public access show called “The Reel Deal”, turned into a full time job when Chris and his friends decided to take it to the internet. They built the site Spill.com, adding multiple podcasts and animated features, to no small amount of success. During this time, a fortuitous friendship sprung up between Chris and young Brian Salisbury, who was also a local film critic, and they merged their forces of will, and their laundry list of ideas for shows, to eventually build this paradise you see before you.
