This is the teaser trailer for the pilot of Fallout, English producer/director Tupaq Felber's adaptation of Peter Bagge's Apocalypse Nerd which Felber's currently pitching to the BBC. It's officially described as "A new 6 episode comedy-drama, exploring the edges of genre and style with the unique voice that distinguishes the best of television today. Fallout is the story of Douglas and Gordon, two friends battling their quarter-life crisis, who come home from a weekend in the woods to find the world has come to an end. ... Weird, funny, heartwarming and then a bit more weird. Fallout is to Cult British TV what global annihilation is to human kind: the next big thing."
I'm sure I'm not alone in saying HOLY CRAP GIMME. I hope to hell the Beeb picks this up (and then promptly re-airs it on BBC America).
