Fans of Buckaroo Banzai have waited long enough. Our prayers have been answered. Not a sequel movie, instead a TV series. If you've seen the Buckaroo Banzai movie, you don't need to be told the second season (if it happens) will be Buckaroo Banzai Against The World Crime League. If you haven't, you missed a cult classic that held tremendous appeal in 1984 with smart, young nerds who were ready for a non-linear movie way ahead of it's time, one filled with many WTF moments of 'I've never seen this before' thinking way outside the box. That, of course, explains why it flopped at the box office. Short version of origin story: Kevin has signed deals to make a 10 episode Buckaroo TV series with the rights holder and an unnamed 'content provider' for distribution. He also is in production (writing now, shooting in the summer) on a 10 episode TV series of Mallrats, after signing similar deals. Long version: Jay kept bugging Kevin to watch an episode of 'The Arrow'. Kevin did after they made an episode including an obscure character from the comic universe. Jay and Kev began watching it together, followed by in-depth discussion worthy of any hard core soap opera fans. After seeing their passion, Kev's wife suggested to his agent (yes, she went behind Kevin's back) to inquire if the show was interested in having Kevin direct an episode (they routinely used guest directors). Oh, hell yes! was the answer. It would be Kev's first time directing TV. Kevin rarely moves his camera, relying on character and dialog to tell the story. He knew he had to review some episodes to see how it was directed, and then do it the same way. He arrived, ready to shoot it their way, plus his personal touches as a fan of the comic. Before the episode aired, buzz went around Hollywood that Kev did an excellent job. That's 'excellent' relative to the show's standards, not to Kev's usual work. While on the set Jay asked Kev why can't you do Mallrats as a series. He'd tried and failed many times to make a movie sequel. The TV branch of the rights holder took his meeting and later offered him a deal. These days every studio wants sequels. MGM, the rights holder to Buckaroo, heard the buzz about Kevin (The Arrow and Mallrats) and had previously heard of him doing a podcast episode about Buckaroo with some of the stars. They knew his audience today would have been the Buckaroo audience in '84, so invited him to make a pitch. At the end of that meeting MGM offered him a deal. Kev & Co. set up 4 meetings with cable networks, all to happen on the same day. At the end of that day, 3 of the 4 called back with what Kevin described as 'hard core offers'.
