We are really happy to receive this recognition for our participation in "The Celibate"! A long way from our sketch comedy days with Mike at The Second City. Bob is particularly proud of Brady who proved that even a teenager can play with the big boys!

We're working on a big, female driven feature comedy with our good friend, "Superstar!" Molly Shannon!
DEADLINE HOLLYWOOD - EXCLUSIVE: Molly Shannon teamed with veteran scribes Rob Muir and Bob Hilgenberg to sell an untitled comedy feature pitch to Disney. They will write the script together for a film that could be a star vehicle for Shannon. It’s based on their own experiences as parents, and the comedy focuses on the social world of motherhood. The film will be produced by Andrew Panay (Wedding Crashers), and Shannon will be exec producer. Hilgenberg & Muir are currently scripting a live-action version of The Family Circus for Fox and Walden Media. Shannon’s repped by Gersh and Framework Entertainment, the scribes are repped by Summit Talent & Literary.
It's a far cry from the days when we were knockin' around comedy clubs in LA with Molly. The Rob & Molly Show was a showcase that led directly to getting Molly on SNL! After that, Rob was stuck with Bob.

You'll see in this "sizzle reel" that actress Jane Lynch ('The 40 Year Old Virgin', 'Glee') plays the part of a studio head that we actually pitched and sold a film to. Everyone has their guesses as to who the character is based on...(in the real meeting, Diane Keaton was in the pitch with us, as she was attached as actress and producer). The dialog in the short film "Hiding In Walls", which "Scribes" is based on, was almost verbatim!
When we sold the pitch, we were baffled by what the studio head had liked, as he/she hadn't really understood the story we were telling AND had odd interpretations about the whole idea. As we stood outside in the parking lot, Diane lamented, "I don't know what they just bought...I'm just glad I don't have to write it!" As it turned out nobody did and the project crashed and burned just about the time the studio chief was fired. Look for our buddy Machete star DANNY TREJO turning in a comedy cameo, as well!

After a lot of work the Tinker Bell film is ready for launch! We had a really nice day at the Cast and Crew screening of the film on the Disney lot. Especially cool was that our offices are about twenty feet away in the Old Animation Building. As mentioned multiple times on this blog, we are incredibly proud of this film and feel honored to have been a part of it. Sometimes you get lucky and catch lightning in a bottle...we think we did just that with this classic Disney tale.
