BRIGSBY BEAR Adventures is a children’s TV show produced for an audience of one: James (Kyle Mooney). When the show abruptly ends, James’s life changes forever, he sets out to finish the story himself and must learn to cope with the realities of a new world that he knows nothing about.
In the new clip James is coming to grips with the fact that he may be the only one watching Brigsby. His father, played by Mark Hamil, helps him cope with his new found feelings. It’s like Truman Show and Death to Smoochie had a depressed baby. These are the results…BRIGSBY BEAR.
THE TRUMAN SHOW aspect comes from a show created to soothe and maybe in some ways protect one individual. Where the DEATH TO SMOOCHIE reverse comparison comes from a deep dark mindset of someone trying to carry on a children’s character to set them free from depression of losing something they loved. Check out the new clip below along with the teaser poster and stills.
BRIGSBY BEAR won the Canne’s Critic Week Award and will be playing in select theaters July 28th!
Cast: Kyle Mooney, Beck Bennett, Claire Danes, Mark Hamill, Jorge Lendeborg Jr., Greg Kinnear, Kate Lyn Sheil, Ryan Simpkins, Matt Walsh and Michaela Watkins
