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:
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.
Five All has teamed up with Woven Digital partner World Star Hip Hop, Paramount Pictures' Insurge Pictures, 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. Adam Goodman and Dani Bernfield are overseeing for Paramount.
Columbia Pictures is developing with Five All and Hutch Parker Entertainment the comedy LET’S GET KIDNAPPED 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 and State Street Pictures have partnered to develop UNTITLED ’70s PUNK PROJECT, a new drama from “Burn Notice” executive producer Alfredo Barrios Jr., for FX Network. Based on a true story, the show explores what happens when a suburban Chicago teen builds a drug-dealing empire — and then discovers punk rock.
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 and a related Tumblr site, 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!
In 2013, Five All developed PARTY BOAT at Comedy Central. The hilarious pilot script by Peter Hoare and Chris Lilli focused on the crew of the worst party boat in Ocean City, Md., and the insane booze cruises that this ship of fools hosted each week.
Five All in the Fifth is developing scripted and non-scripted digital series for distribution across our partner Woven Digital's network of websites, which reach a collective 33 million 18- to 34-year-old men each month, as well as major YouTube channels like Electus's LOUD channel. 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. Get in touch to learn about how Five All and our partners at Woven Digital can create an original digital video for your brand.
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.
