Nerdland

Synopsis: NERDLAND is the story of two best friends, aspiring screenwriter ELLIOT and aspiring actor JOHN, whose dreams of super-stardom have fizzled. With their 30th birthdays looming and their desperation growing, John and Elliot decide that in this 24/7, celebrity-obsessed world of over-shared navel-gazing, there are more ways to become famous -- or infamous -- then ever before. So why not become famous TODAY? NERDLAND is that day. Making up for what they lack in brains and talent with abundant, witless enthusiasm, John and Elliot troll Los Angeles on a fame-grab journey, encountering and abusing friends both new and old. Navigating their hyper-stimulating landscape of consumerism gone wild, our two consumers want desperately to be consumed -- and they will have their FAME, no matter what the cost.

MAN [ON TV]:
Tonight, at long last,

the city of Los Angeles...

...and corporate sponsor

the Fluffy Time Biscuit Company...

...will finally unveil the new,

improved Hollywood sign.

[MAN GRUNTING THEN SCREAMING]

[MUSIC PLAYING]

[GRUNTS]

[BOTH GASP]

[SCREAMING]

MAN:
Hey.

Wake up.

[SNORING]

- Elliot, wake up.

- Aah! Oh, it's dick titty.

Oh, blargh, sorry. Morning, John.

Morning, Elliot.

You might want to wish me luck today.

Okay. Well, here it comes. Good luck, John.

Ugh. Don't you wanna know why

you're wishing me luck today?

Did you ask me to wish you luck?

I happen to have a very important

meeting this afternoon...

...with Brett Anderson.

[LAUGHING]

- Bullshit.

- I do.

- Really?

- I'm meeting Brett Anderson.

You're gonna meet Brett Anderson?

You're meeting the actor

Brett f*cking Anderson?

The star of Murder Games,

Middle Name:
Danger...

...and Rock Paper Scissors Murder. Seriously?

[CHUCKLING]

Could be our ticket to the big time.

[WATCH BEEPS]

- Oh, better not keep him waiting.

- All right. All right. Hey, you...

You go knock him dead, Mr. Fancy Pants.

I'm gonna get some writing done

before my shift.

Ah. Slave to a fickle muse, eh?

I leave you to it, my friend.

[SIGHS]

[SNIFFS]

Okay.

[SIGHS]

Mocking white rectangle.

Agony of spinning yarns from nothing...

...but sheer imagination.

And for what?

For what?

Will anyone ever begin...

...to appreciate my genius?

Will they ever be worthy of it?

Don't think about that. Do your pages.

Do your pages.

Here we go.

Int. Strip Club. Day.

Naked ladies gyrate.

Y-R-A-T-E.

Their huge boobs are bouncing.

Oh. No, no. Da-da-da-da-da.

Their bosoms.

Yes.

"Bosoms." Much classier.

Their bosoms bounce like great jiggly melons.

An angry old man enters the club.

This is Rip Van Winkle.

Van Winkle wears olden time clothing

and... And a sleeping cap.

Yeah. Okay. His long, white beard

reaches to the floor.

He brandishes a large...

...blunderbuss.

What kind of filthy, sinful world

have I awakened to?

ELLIOT:
Van Winkle opens fire:

Boom! Boom!

Okay. That's... That's enough for today.

Stop when you're hot.

Ladies and gentlemen,

the muse has left the building.

[WHISTLING]

[MUSIC PLAYING]

[IN STRAINED VOICE] Won't be long now, Mo.

The teats are full inflatable.

[GRUNTING]

[IN NORMAL VOICE]

No time for romance today, I'm afraid.

- It'll just have to be a...

- WOMAN:
Hello. Elliot?

[KNOCKING ON DOOR]

It's Mrs. McCullers from next door.

John said you're home, and I've baked

you my famous Lady Baltimore cake.
