Tweetable Logline: Two mediocre detectives bumble around Chicago solving crimes of the heart, all while trying to find their own piece of the pie.
Elevator Pitch: “Under Covers” follows the lives and mishaps of two undercover detectives who take on crimes of the heart, all while trying to find their own way towards happiness. It’s a crime comedy that takes the quirkiness of “Brooklyn Nine Nine” gets it drunk and has a one night stand with “Cheaters.”
Carlo Lorenzo Garcia, writer, producer, actor – “Empire” (FOX TV), “Chicago PD” (NBC), “Anything Is Possible”
Elena Muntean, director – “Cowl Girl”
Logan Stone, DP – “Blue Notes,” “Clash of the Vampires”
About the series: I’ve wanted to create a series that blends the seriousness of an “NYPD Blue” with the ridiculous comedy of an “Airplane.” I think there is a beautiful contrast between Cortez’s straight man motif and the over the top silliness of McClusky.
Current status: First episode released, pre-production on 9 more.
