Ben Stiller & Maker Studios Take Interest in “Lonny”
Season 1 of “Next Time on Lonny” put satire and comedy to work as the star of a reality TV show, typical, white male Lonny, encounters the problems that plague his demographic, like bad dates and butt dials. This standout first season got the attention of Benn Stiller’s Red Hour Digital and Maker Studios, both of whom said in November that they would take responsibility of production and distribution of Season 2. Season 1 was independently produced by creators Alex Anfanger and Dan Schimpf.
Watch the trailer to see how Lonny loses control in Season 2, as his minor problems spark major insanity. Meanwhile, expect some epic guest star performances from the likes of Kal Penn of “Harold & Kumar,” Adam Scott from “Parks and Recreation,” and even Haley Joel Osment of “The Sixth Sense.”
