Los Angeles, CA (The Hollywood Times) 6/28/18 – Los Angeles-Award-winning filmmaker Dustin Ferguson announces cast and details regarding his hilarious upcoming television pilot for “L.A. Lifers”, a throw-back to the “situation comedy” sitcoms of the 90s.

“I’m 90s TV Junkie”, says Ferguson. “Shows like ‘Married with Children’, ‘Martin’ and ‘Living Single’ I still hold dear to my heart today. Even the classic Nickelodeon programs like ‘Clarissa Explains It All’, ‘My Brother and Me’ and ‘The Adventures of Pete and Pete’ all served as inspiration, and many gags in the show are based on my experiences after moving from the Midwest to Los Angeles to pursue my own film career.”

This comedic series will feature a “laugh track” and follow four roommates: a Stunt Car Driver, a Soap Opera Star, a rising Adult Film Actress and a YouTube Sensation as they fight their way to the top (while also struggling to pay the bills) in the suburbs of Los Angeles.

The show was written by Mike Reeb (“Horndog’s Beach Party”, “Nemesis 5”) and stars Carrie Anne Bernans (“Black Panther”), David Thomas Newman (“Troma’s Mulligan’s Monsters”), Neveen Woods (“Horndog’s Beach Party”), Ryan Rasberry (“Ant-man and The Wasp”) and Dawna Lee Heising (“Samurai Cop 2”, “Nemesis 5”).
