Wrestling Comedy Web Series To Be Featured In First Ever Brand Auction At Christie’s, NY
Web Comedy 'Full Nelson' added to Brand in Entertainment's Inaugural Integration Auction at Christie's, NY, January 20, 2010.
Full Nelson is the story of an independent wrestling promoter with big dreams and little skill. Jake Nelson (Adam Paul, Hollywood Residential)
Created by Adam Paul and Andy Bobrow, Full Nelson allowed the seasoned television comedy writers an opportunity to exercise their talents. Paul created and starred in the Starz comedy Hollywood Residential and Bobrow has written for several hit TV comedies including Malcolm in the Middle, The Winner, and the upcoming Sons of Tucson.
Full Nelson is repped for brands by Space Truffles Entertainment, whose focus on organic brand placement and web series sponsorship has been a driving force in shaping how web series are funded and how advertisers can deliver their messages in new and compelling ways.
While the series features real wrestlers among its cast, it’s also attracted the talents of Carlos Bernard (24’s Tony Almeida) and Lisa Donovan (YouTube’s LisaNova). ‘Carlos and I go way back and he was eager to do a comedy, so we wrote him the role of a sexually confused wrestler named Chachin,’ said Paul. “Without giving anything away, I’ll just say Carlos jumped at the chance to wear silver tights.”
“The entry of Full Nelson to the Brand in Entertainment (BiE) catalogue feels appropriate,”
