Below is the trailer for a hopefully upcoming web series called ‘Getting back with Dave Benson Phillips’.
This web series is described as “Nineties nostalgia meets YouTube youth.”
Here’s the press release:
Dave Benson Phillips is the man who taught millennials vengeance was acceptable on their parents and teachers – so long as it involved a gunge tank. CBBC TV gameshow Get Your Own Back ran from 1991 to 2004 and since then Dave has begun a successful live version of his most famous show, whilst being been plagued by the darker forces of the internet in online death hoaxes.
In our fictional story, Dave takes on superstar vlogger Ryan Marten in order to try and make himself big online. The problem is, Ryan soon becomes an ex-superstar and Dave is contractually obliged to pick up the pieces with only his work experience boy to help him.
We have self-funded a pilot episode but are asking for help crowdfunding the rest of the series. We want to make this as high quality and funny as we can make it. Anyone can get involved in recording a version of the theme song using our lyrics at http://www.clickmyface.co.uk/getting-back-with-dave-benson-phillips.html.
As someone who grew up watching Dave’s show, I’m very interested to see this project get made. I used to spend hours fantasisng about what teachers I could slime.
