Video: Tommy Wiseau Has Made A Sitcom That Looks As Bizarre As 'The Room'
If you've watched The Room one too many times and have been aching for some new material full of "so bad it's good" ridiculousness, the film's visionary, Tommy Wiseau, is working on a new sitcom.
The AV Club reported that Wiseau shot the pilot for The Neighbors back in 2004, but this week, he launched a website for the show, promising (in bright neon lights) that it would be coming soon this September. In addition to a bizarre trailer where credits seem to take up about the first half of the video, Wiseau also posted on his website an even more incoherent clip of a party in an apartment.
