Five All in the Fifth is currently developing large-budget and independently financed feature films. Genres include "hard R" comedies, thrillers, dramas, romantic comedies, horror, and more. Those projects already announced include:
Five All has teamed up with Paramount Pictures, Woven Digital partner World Star Hip Hop, and Def Jam co-founder Russell Simmons to develop the urban comedy "World Star Hip Hop Presents: The After Party." The film will be written and directed by Ian Edelman, the creator-writer of HBO's "How to Make It in America."
World Star is one of the leading hip-hop and urban websites, commanding an audience of more than 25 million uniques per month. It is part of the Woven Digital network, a collection of sites (including BroBible.com) targeting the ultra-coveted 18- to 34-year-old audience.
The film will be produced by Woven, WorldStarHipHop founder Q Worldstar, Underground's Trevor Engelson, and Def Pictures. Dani Bernfield is overseeing for Paramount.
20th Century Fox is developing Five All in the Fifth's true crime project "Narc," based on the actual story of an All-American college kid-turned-police informant. Zac Efron is attached to star as a student, frat president, and sports team captain who’s busted for drugs, then secretly turns narc and helps the cops bust criminals while carrying on his BMOC campus life.
Five All's Douglas Banker will executive produce with Efron’s manager and producing partner Jason Barrett. Julie and Rick Yorn are producing for LBI and Matthew Reilly will co-produce. Grant Myers will write the script.
TriStar Pictures is developing with Five All and Hutch Parker Entertainment the comedy FAKENAPPED from writer Nicholas Thomas ("Let's Be Cops"). Inspired by a true story, the film follows a group of guys who fake-kidnap their friend in order to free him up for their Super Bowl party. Hutch Parker and Five All's Douglas Banker are producing, with Tom Vance co-producing and Dan Wilson executive producing.
Five All in the Fifth Entertainment is developing a romantic comedy based on novelist and essayist Liza Monroy's novel-in-progress, "The Profiler," a fictional version of Monroy's New York Times Modern Love column, "When Mom Is on the Scent, and Right."
In "The Profiler," a young woman's mother, a professional profiler for the Foreign Service, tries to find the perfect man for her daughter via her well-honed profiling techniques, only to have those same methods turned around on her.
Five All in the Fifth Entertainment has teamed up with State Street Pictures to develop "The Shots You Take," based on the June 2011 Deadspin.com article, "The Canucks Fan Who Drove 1,000 Miles for a Game, Partied with the Owner, Drank with Beautiful Women, Nearly Died, and Got Comped for Game 5."
Screenwriters Peter Hoare and Chris Lilli ("Killing Hasselhoff") have penned the script, which centers around the true story of four best friends who travel nearly a thousand miles to watch their beloved NHL team compete in the Stanley Cup Finals. What ensues becomes fodder for one of the greatest bar stories ever told.
Five All in the Fifth is developing television programs for broadcast, cable, and digital networks. Formats include scripted dramas and comedies, and non-scripted reality and game shows.
Five All is developing THE D, a half-hour single-camera Detroit comedy from "D" native Chris Powell (aka Comedian CP) and Chip Hall, for TBS. THE D follows 25-year-old CP and his best friend, a puppet named Reggie Bo, as CP fights to earn the respect of his legendary gangster father while at the same time surviving in America’s most dangerous city. This is the second Detroit-centered project that Powell, Hall, and Five All have set up, following BRIGHTMOOR, which was developed for FX earlier this year. Five All's Douglas Banker is executive producing with Underground Films's Trevor Engelson.
Five All is developing HYPE!, a gritty half-hour comedy from Irvine Welsh, author of the novel TRAINSPOTTING, for TBS. The show is set in the world of the Miami art scene. Welsh will write and executive produce the project, alongside Five All’s Douglas Banker and Underground's Trevor Engelson.
Five All and Sean "Diddy" Combs partnered to develop BRIGHTMOOR, an animated comedy for FX. Set in inner city Detroit, the show comes from the hilarious, twisted minds of Chip Hall and Chris Powell (aka Comedian CP). Five All's Douglas Banker executive produced alongside Combs and Underground Films's Trevor Engelson.
Five All developed for MTV a loosely scripted comedy starring Vine star Logan Paul (7.7 million followers, over 2.8 billion "loops") and his brother Jake (3.8 million followers, over 1 billion loops), providing a hilarious, behind-the-scenes look at the stunts and pranks that have made them some of Vine's most popular stars. Five All's Banker executive produced with Scott Tomlinson (Tosh.0), with Logan Paul also co-executive producing.
Five All and Avalon Television (“Workaholics”) developed EAST OF EXURBIA, a supernatural comedy written by Nick Kreiss and Ian Wolterstorff, for Xbox Entertainment Studios. The show is inspired by “one of the worst roommate stories ever told,” which originally appeared on BroBible.com.
In May 2011, Simon & Schuster imprint Gallery Books published My Dad Is a Bro, a hilarious book based on a Father's Day-themed contest on BroBible.com, honoring the most influential man in any young Bro's life — his Dad.
When Hollywood came calling, Lionsgate got on board and MTV ordered a pilot. Although the show wasn't picked up to series, the pilot aired Saturday, October 26, as an episode of MTV's award-winning docu-series, "True Life."
On TRUE LIFE PRESENTS: MY DAD IS A BRO, you'll meet Barry and Dave, two of the funniest, most outrageous Bro-Dads in America, along with the children they love to party with — and torment. Watch the full episode here!
Five All in the Fifth is teaming with top digital talent — from YouTubers and Viners to Instagram stars and other influencers — to develop scripted and non-scripted series for distribution across a wide array of digital outlets, including YouTube, Maker.tv, and our partner Woven Digital's network of websites. Five All has also created branded digital videos for Microsoft, Remington, and Liquid Flow, shooting and distributing videos that feature their products in subtle but effective — and hilarious — ways.
Five All has teamed with irreverent social media star Josh "Fat Jew" Ostrovsky for STORY TIME WITH FAT JEW, an animated series for Maker Studios. In the show, the Fat Jew recounts his hilarious and outrageous stories, including going to dinner with Kanye West and partying with Saudi billionaires in Cannes. STORY TIME airs on Fat Jew's YouTube and Facebook channels, as well as on maker.tv. Five All's Banker is producing alongside Matador Content and Maker. The show is animated by TMWRK STUDIOS and Superette.
Five All’s first digital series, “Bad Sports,” premiered in July 2013 on Electus’s LOUD YouTube channel and across the Woven Digital network of websites. Starring Miles Fisher as Chad Whipple, the host of the (self-described) “Dankest Sports Web Series Talk Show of All Time,” the series is a hilarious take on sports culture, tackling, in Chad’s words, “the kind of issues the networks don’t have the balls to address.”
“Bad Sports” was created by Miles Fisher, Dave Smith, and Teddy Bressman; written by Smith and Bressman; directed by Phil Hodges; and edited by Mike Brown and Nic Delikat. Five All in the Fifth’s Douglas Banker served as producer. The series stars Miles Fisher, Fran Kranz, Dave Smith, Johnno Wilson, Amanda Lund, Dan Gill, Teddy Bressman, and Cushing Donelan.
For the launch of Kinect's Bing Voice Search for Xbox 360, Five All in the Fifth/BroBible teamed up with Microsoft to produce the short video, "Forget the Controller," featuring a bunch of TV-obsessed guys who learn that losing the remote control isn't the end of the world. Written and directed by Win Bates; full cast and crew credits available here.
To help promote its new back and body extendable groomer, Remington enlisted Five All in the Fifth/BroBible to produce the hilarious music video, "Keep It Hairy?", in which two best friends argue over an age-old question: Do chicks dig guys' bodies hairy or shaved? Viewers were also invited to join Team Shaved or Team Hairy on Facebook and Twitter, and to download the exclusive song. The video went viral, racking up more than 200,000 views. Directed by Win Bates.
