    comedy spoof

    greenwood district studios presents: Quality Mart - a television show by Amaru & John Jenkins

    Quality Mart is a current-day, situational, scripted comedy series about the daily dealings from an employee (essential worker) perspective when you work at a convenience store in an underrepresented urban neighborhood. The first season of 12 episodes will take place in 2020 just before COVID-19 publicly hit the U.S.

    Each week, the series will try and tackle not only the issues the store employees have while working there, but also dive a little into their personal lives and struggles leading up to working in a convenience store. We will humanize the employees through humor and clever storytelling, as people seem to take these essential workers for granted, some even calling them underemployed.


funny is funny LIVE

The set-up is a 3 person stand up comedy show just like a professional standard comedy show would run. This will be a 3 camera shoot produced and shot on location at GDS. 12 episodes will be produced and shot at GDS. The show starts scripted and ends with the headliner closing out the show w/15 minutes. Included in the end credits, show will end scrolling comics’ future events for their personal promotion.
