Safety Geeks:SVI starring Dave Beeler as Sir Reginald, Tom Konkle as Budwin Yaker and Brittney Powell as Dr. Randi Minky chronicles a CSI-like team which investigates safety accidents, leaving a swath of comedic chaos and destruction in their wake. The show is a live-action, innovative half-hour program that combines the familiar form and structure of investigative shows with the fresh anarchic free form of Adult Swim while drawing on the dryness of British humor...and lots of good visual gags.
Cast and production details
Demographic: "Teenage" males from 16 to 35.
The P.O.S.H. (Professional Occupational Safety Hazard) team investigates safety violations and accidents, ineptly causing more damage as a result. P.O.S.H. provides an obscure, well-meaning service'unfortunately, they are a bunch of idiots. The world of P.O.S.H. is very unsafe'largely due to them.
Dave and I really feel strongly that this taps into the saturation of "procedural" investigative shows and plays off those familiar forms in a fun way, offing a nice mix of surreal Adult Swim humor with a Monty Python take on CSI, Missing, Without a Trace, NCIS etc.. and all those serious investigative shows. This is not a straight parody, but a "jumping off place" which plays on many cultural references from the above mentioned shows to The Saint to Batman to classic silent comedy.
