Nick Bradley Might Be an Alcoholic, a locally-made television comedy pilot premieres tonight, Monday, December 20, 2010 at the Bagdad Theater (3702 SE Hawthorne Blvd).
The pilot centers on an irresponsible young man, Nick Bradley (Gavin Bristol), who is named CEO of his father’s company the morning after he drunkenly crashes his car, and is sentenced to three-thousand hours of community service and a mandatory alcohol recovery program.
It stars Gavin Bristol, Doug Brooks, Robert Blanche, Luke Clements, Benjamin Farmer, and Jon Ashley Hall.
Brianna Barrett and Jeremiah Adler wrote and directed the pilot for only $4,000, and filmed around the Portland area with a local cast and crew. The pair took the almost finished product to LA for post-production, where it was well received. The show is making the rounds.
The Bagdad doors open at 5:30 and the show starts at 6:30. Arrive early to meet the cast and crew. There will also be a post-show Q&A with the directors and several cast members. Tickets are free but please consider donating $5 to cover the venue costs!
