Geico Cavemen Show In Progress
Way back in March, I noted that the Geico cavemen could get their own show. Now The Drudge Report has linked to a report that the show is indeed progressing, and will be aired on ABC beginning October 2. The pilot was already shot, but they are re-shooting to dedicate more time to exposition and character establishment.
The show's producers and writers are denying any serious overtones of dealing with prejudice in the show, instead just trying to carry on the legacy of amusing audiences through dealing with society's image of cavemen. So why don't cavemen shave to give themselves an image boost? Director Jeff Phillips responds, "There's a name for those kind of people, and they're called 'shavers,' and the cavemen community looks down on them," Gordon said.
