Gamer Month returns! To kick things off this year, Tam takes the gang to the border of the glorious Nation of Arstotzka to pitch a live-action adaptation of the popular Indie Political Thriller Puzzle game: Papers, Please.
It’s been a while since we last recorded, so before our grand return to the Elevator, Tam brings his pitch from the live show earlier this year: a sequel to his Mexploitation remake starring Legendary Luchador El Santo.
In this week’s season finale, Tam retells one of his abandoned pitches: an adaptation of ‘Doctor Sleep’, Stephen King’s 2013 ‘The Shining’ sequel novel.
Wumi learns about the Psychic life of Danny Torrence, Deeby can’t stop referencing The Simpsons, and Tam really doesn’t want his pitch to turn into a Superhero film.
Hollywood’s just announced that they’re rebooting the ‘Shaft’ films, but Tam reckons he can do better that the director of ‘Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer’. Tam introduces a new generation of the Shaft Family to the gritty world of modern-day Harlem – whatever that’s like.
A whole new world, A new fantastic episode of The Broken Elevator! This isn’t the first time we’ve tackled Disney, but it is for me. With Moana out this week, I tell Deeby three fairy tales that could potentially become films, and he helps me take the best idea from Zero to Hero. (direct link)…
Tam looks back at Doctor Strange’s 1963 comic book debut in this week’s episode, and tries to turn an unrelated story in the same issue into Marvel’s next big franchise. But– he hasn’t read the comic.
With Wumi’s help, a two line synopsis for ‘We Search The Stars!’ and a bunch of nameless characters, can Tam make a good story?
Tam takes a Magical Mystery Tour to 1969 in his Beatles-inspired pitch. With A Little Help From his friends – including guest Barney – Tam pitches a trueish story about an Abbey Road billboard on the Sunset Strip.
Barney’s got a Ticket to Ride, Deeby’s In The Sky With Diamonds, Wumi want to Hold Your Hand and Tam can’t think of another pun and needs some Help!
Tam and Deeby join forces to turn some of cinema’s greatest heroes to the Dark Side. Deeby rewrites history, Tam doesn’t play by his own rules and Wumi goes on the run in France.
It’s GAMER MONTH! Every pitch this month is games-related, and Tam starts off with the obscure Nintendo64 classic, 1080 Snowboarding. Tam can’t do basic maths, Wumi reveals his Indie-kid past, and Deeby wants to breakdance on a board.
This week, Tam takes on the impossible: he attempts to pitch a good sequel to 2015’s Fantastic Four.
