I have a weakness for kid detective stories. Harriet the Spy, Encyclopedia Brown, Nancy Drew, Hardy Boys, etc etc.. In fact for a few years now I've wanted to write a play about Encyclopedia Brown at age 34. Something dark and noir.
Clearly this isn't a very original idea. And I never found any good hooks.
I also like Derrick Comedy. Dominic Dierkes was a long time (and extremely pivotal) coach for Thank You, Robot. Also all three of them are extremely nice and generous. (And, yes, extremely funny.)
So I can't hold the plot of their first upcoming feature film against them. Because it is something I wish I had done first. And is something tailored to me.
Here's the trailer:
