We entered RTE storyland with this and were quite disappointed we didn’t get in as we’re really happy with it! So we decided we want to make it in the new year ourselves but we’ll need all the help we can. So we thought the good people at egomotion can help and get behind it if they like what they see…here is a synopsis and the first two scripts of our comedy…. ” title=”Very Happy” />
Bugbusters is an outrageous South Park meets Anchorman
Sci-fi/Action/Comedy about a team of exterminators who have
been hired to tackle a mutant fly pandemic which threatens
mankind. A weapons raid gone wrong leads to the escape of a
lethal and vicious Flyman (a part fly/part man phenomenon)
who wastes no time finding its first kill. Victims of the
Flyman quickly become Flymen themselves, and the Irish city
of Cork is soon riddled with these monsters. With both the
Gardai and Army curiously occupied, the Mayor of Cork
reluctantly hires the Bugbusters (an incredibly extreme
quartet of exterminators) to deal with the problem before
the Flymen carry out their plan to seize control of the
region’s entire supply of sugar. Armed with their gung-ho
attitude, fantastic outfits and heavy artillery, the
Bugbusters clamp down on the presence of Flymen in Cork.
However, a failed attempt to capture the notorious fly
leader ’the Flyking’ results in the Mayor taking them off
the case, much to his delight. Down and despondent, the
Bugbusters are soon reminded of their place in society and
that what they do best is killing bugs. Now as renegade
vigilantes, the Bugbusters hatch a plan to lure the Flyking
in and finish him off once and for all.
Mack: Leader of the Bugbusters, separated from his wife
after the death of their son at the hands of a fly, a
womaniser and heavy drinker. Must overcome his demons to
avenge the death of his son, Mack 3.
Andy: Second in command. Andy is the excitable member of the
Bugbusters with seemingly no sense of common decency. He
suffers from a severe sugar addiction which turns ugly once
the Flymen control the sugar supply.
Steve: West Cork native, not quite up to speed with city
life, is in his late 20’s, still a virgin and is the butt of
many jokes. But it’s love that Steve is looking for and in
the Flyman’s wife he finds it, but the love, like Steve
himself, is short-lived.
Julio: A Mexican immigrant working as a Bugbuster, hoping
not to be deported. Often the workhorse of the group.
