July 9, 2012 - PRLog -- The 2012 Chicago Comedy TV Pilot Competition has named its four finalists, which include the wry workplace comedy "The Club." The competition, in its sixth year, showcases local sitcoms to a jury of executives in Hollywood and awards $500 to the winner.

Created by Susan Athey and released by Rich Mahogany Productions, "The Club" is set at a posh country club in suburban Chicago and centers around three waitresses, Alison (Misti Patrella), Dana (Amy Hunt), and Sarah (Christine O'Keefe). Alison and Dana are jaded best friends/career waitresses in their 30's and Sarah is a bratty new hire reluctantly taking a job after being kicked out of college.

The series is inspired by Athey's days waiting tables at various Michigan country clubs. Her husband is the show's editor and sound designer. Together they head up Chicago-based Rich Mahogany Productions.

Other finalists in this year's competition include "DearWolfe" (created by Rust Belt Vendetta Productions), "Fools Goal" (Marz Timms), and "Funemployed" (Michael Lippert). All four shows will be screened at 7 p.m., Friday, July 20, at the Chicago Cultural Center Theater, 78 E. Washington St. The winner will be announced the following week on the competition's official website,

The Chicago Comedy TV Pilot Competition is produced by Marion Sours, (312) 642-2156, in association with The Chicago Film Office, (312) 744-6415.
