Today Dan Taylor sits down topitch "Hero Happy Hour."
Q: Describe "Hero HappyHour" in two sentences or less.
Taylor: After a toughday of saving the world and defending justice, even superheroes need a place torelax and unwind - a place where everyone knows your name, secret identity ornot.
Q: If you were to compare"Hero Happy Hour" to a movie, TV show (or movies or TV shows) whatwould it be?
Taylor:"Cheers", but with capes and masks - along with "Seinfeld",but with superhero neurosis.
Q: Why do you think"Hero Happy Hour" would translate to film/TV/animation?
Taylor: Actually,"Hero Happy Hour" is already in the early stages of making it's way tothe small screen as an animated series. Hero Happy Hour is a different kind ofsuperhero property. It offers a different, albeit skewed, look at superheroeswhile remaining grounded. Even non-comic book fans can relate to the characterarchetypes.
Q: Why should movie folkscome by your Comic-Con booth?
Taylor: While the wheelsare in motion for "Hero Happy Hour" it might be a good time forinterested parties to jump on board. "Hero Happy Hour" is just the tipof the iceberg as far as properties go that we've got brewing at GeekPunk.
