Excellent show with a fun premise
Don't be scared - pick a movie you like and jump in! The basic premise is 'movie directors who hit it big, earned a blank check from the studio, and then either cashed it or bounced it'. Along the way you'll meet the Pro-doer Ben, The Mother of Blankies, and other recurring characters. They're very active on their subreddit, run polls to help choose future directors, and are great guys to hang out with!
