PRLog - Oct. 29, 2010 - Cheapjack Partners today announced producer of “The Bullpen,” a web series will begin in November with webisodes premiering early in the New Year.

“The Bullpen” is a workplace comedy centered on the office of “Bullpen Comics,” a company started by three well-known creators. Unhappy with the restrictions and sure they can make more money and control their characters’ destiny, they set up their own shop only to find that running a business requires a different kind of pencil-pushing.

The series will feature Daniel Morris, Drew McCabe and Shaun McLaughlin as the creators charting their own destiny. Gabriel Benson and McLaughlin will produce the series. The conceit of the series is that the creators consider what they are doing to be so important that they feel they must record every minute of it for posterity, even if every minute includes someone deciding he’s more comfortable working in his underwear.

Previously, the crew had worked on “Cheapjack Shakespeare: The Non-Musical” the stage adaptation of  “Cheapjack Shakespeare” which appears approximately five days a week on the website www.cheapjackshakespeare.com.  Collections are available at Drive Thru comics (comics.drivethru.stuff) and for the Kindle e-reader on Amazon. The partners are very close to announcing a paperback collection of the book and are close to announcing a motion picture adaptation.

In addition, Cheapjack Partners will soon announce their next webcomic, described as a “Rollicking comedy about the undead”.
