Brian Remus has just won his dream job. Ever since he was a kid, he's wanted to follow in Carl Sagan's footsteps and share his love of science with the world. When a successful pitch lands him his very own science show at a public broadcast station, it looks like his dream has finally become a reality.
But the show turns out to be a disaster. The station has no budget, no set and no equipment. All Brian has are his above-average brains and his boundless passion for science. Now, before he can inspire the world, Brian will have to transform his co-workers from a bunch of jaded curmudgeons into a team of all-stars who can pull off the impossible.

Brian's Cameraman. In addition to working on a kids' science show, Fred also happens to be a pornographer. Brian wishes Fred would stop telling everyone about the pornographer part. Although Fred considers himself a smart, head-above-ground kind of guy, he's really an idiot who believes everything he reads, which mostly consists of lame conspiracy theories on the internet.
KIPP: Station Manager. Kipp is a super nice guy, the kind of boss who wants to be your best pal. He's also a liar, a thief, and a grossly incompetent bureaucrat. Nearly every decision he makes should be grounds for dismissal, but for reasons that remain mysterious, he appears to be unfireable.
"Brian Remus: Science Genius" is a unique blend of situation comedy, bizarre meta jokes, deadpan humor, and first-rate storytelling. With your support, this dynamite script will become a professional caliber show with the potential to reach millions of viewers online.
