It’s Max Fun Drive! The one time of year where we ask you to become members or upgrade your membership to help make our show possible. For this year’s Max Fun Drive we’re bringing you something super special. A full on Dead Pilots Society Series. Well, the first three episodes of one at least.
This week’s pilot is called Wheelan Motors written and created by Brooks Wheelan (I Think You Should Leave, SNL) & Isaac Rentz (Opening Night). Brooks and Isaac sold this show to Fox and the network was so excited about it that they ordered them to write two more episodes. Over the next two week’s of Max Fun Drive you’ll get two hear all three episodes of this show. Wheelan Motors centers around Brooks, who returns to Iowa to accept a job at his family’s car dealership after a misunderstanding lands him in a mental hospital. This is also the first pilot we recorded live since the pandemic began so you’re going to actually hear some real laughs!
The cast for this one was next level! Wheelan Motors stars Brooks Wheelan as Brooks, Jessica Lowe as Jenny Valvino, Paul Scheer as Todd, Will Sasso as Jim Wheelan, Kerri Kenney-Silver as Chris Wheelan, Bobby Moynihan as Michael, Mike O’Brien as Freddie Admunson, Gary Anthony Williams as Doug T, Ryan Asher as Layton, Nick Rutherford as Ries, Joe Mande as Lincoln, Katrina Davis as Stacy T, and Joey Lyons with stage directions.
