Bobby & Robbie Updates!

                               
      .    
DATELINE OUR BLOG - EXCLUSIVE:  
Coming off delivering the First Draft of our Disney, Molly Shannon "Female Driven Comedy" script ("Mother Up!") we have dipped into a couple of new projects. One, is a Live Action/Hybrid feature with Academy Award winning Producer Don Hahn (Maleficent).  While the story-line is under wraps, we can say it is a Romantic Comedy set in the art world, with a bit of magic that takes us not only all over New York, but around the world as well! Without exaggeration, it is one of the coolest projects we've ever been involved with.  The story came from an idea Don has been noodling with for years. 

At the moment we are working on a Feature animated script assignment for MARZA Animation Studios. Sandy Rabins & Penney Finkleman Cox (formerly of Sony) are producing. 

Finally, we are putting the finishing touches on some TV pilots/pitches. "Scribes" and its Sizzle Reel, featured above, has reemerged as a priority. It continues to blow our minds when we see the all-star cast we were able to book on the short (originally "Hiding In Walls)...Academy Awards, Emmy's and a Box Office champ/mass murderer! Of course produced by the king himself, Patrick Stack!

DATELINE HOLLYWOOD - AWARDS!

                                                 
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!

                         

OUTSTANDING DIRECTING IN A COMEDY SERIES - BOB HILGENBERG AND MIKE RANDLEMAN, "THE CELIBATE".

OUTSTANDING THEME SONG IN A COMEDY SERIES - BRADY HILGENBERG, "THE CELIBATE"

Emmy Nomination For Molly!

This is a really well deserved nomination. Molly was amazing in her guest appearances on HBO's Enlightened.  This performance was a long way from Mary Katherine, but equally as brilliant. We're very proud to be writing our "Disney's Moms" film with Molly. She'll nail that roll as well!

New Project At Disney!



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.

Below, Molly tells the kind of stories that led to the three of us coming up with the idea for this project.
