Kasi Brown and Brandon Walter began collaborating after hitting it off in an Upright Citizen’s Brigade Improv class, and formed Buzzworm Films with the intention of producing a quality sketch comedy show as well as feature films using UCB trained actors. During the summer of 2009, Brandon and Kasi began producing the “Mother Approved” sketch web-series. It wasn’t long before they made the front page of Funny or Die as a user pick (February 12, 2010) and two time editor pick. In 2011, Atom.com (Comedy Central’s Web Site) made them an Atom Pick and awarded them a cash prize. From there, they began to build an audience and fan base. They caught the eye of Desperate Housewives Executive Producer, Larry Shaw, who stated, “Mother Approved is the cure for the common comedy!” and actor Michael Vartan who says, “Mother Approved comedy rocks! Itʼs hilarious and weird, and finally explains all the crap you’ve been so freaked out about your whole life.”
Their Phobia series, which examines real life bizarre phobias and how people deal with them, recently won best Mobiseries at the prestigious ITV Festival and acquired distribution through Fun Little Movies.
