NY-based Northern Lights editor Glenn Conte recently cut the new eight-episode satirical web series, “Cop Show,” created by SNL alum and comedian Colin Quinn. The series that recently debuted on L/Studio, which also hosts Lisa Kudrow‘s web series “Web Therapy.” The show is a behind-the-scenes look into the production of a crime drama.
The series was created and written by Quinn, is directed by J.D. Amato (The Chris Gethard Show) and is executive produced by Morris S. Levy of MEGA Films and Brian Stern (Comedy Central‘s Big Time in Hollywood, FL). Guest stars include Jerry Seinfeld, Amy Schumer, Jim Gaffigan, Michael Che, Peter Grosz and Griffin Newman.
Having previously worked with Levy on the comedy feature A Novel Romance, Conte was eager to collaborate again for this web series. “It was great working with such a high caliber of talent,” said Conte. “Colin knew exactly what he wanted and it was exciting to work with him to push the comedy to the next level and really help shape the show from the beginning stage.”
“Cop Show is a labor of love,” Quinn added. “That’s why nobody made over a hundred dollars.”
“When you’re making a web series about a documentary about a fake television show about fake cops, things can get out of hand very quickly,” said Amato. “You need production and postproduction to be extremely efficient or the whole thing falls apart. The team working on Cop Show went above and beyond to make sure we got the best out of our material.”
