The Coffee Table (season one)

After years away from the web video world, I am super stoked to be in post-production on a new sci-fi comedy web video series!

The Coffee Table will be fifteen 5-minute episodes, and the premise is very much Doctor Who meets Greatest American Hero – a family discovers that their new coffee table is actually an ancient alien artifact, and they inadvertently activate it, sending their entire house hurtling through the void. The show centers on their struggle to get home, while defending themselves from various aliens who ring the doorbell looking to take the coffee table off their hands. The majority of the special effects will be old school analog style, with models, crazy lighting, underwater cinematography, etc. Oh, and the coffee table talks (of course).

Check out our Indiegogo fundraising video:

I was inspired by the concept of a bottle show in television: an episode that primarily takes place on the standing sets of a series, in order to save money. The Coffee Table was envisioned as a “bottle series” – 90% of the show takes place within the house that is hurtling through the void, enabling multiple production economies while still offering a very unique indy sci-fi experience.
