A new reality series about picking up the pieces… and flinging them.
Warren the Ape is a parody of celebrity reality shows. Like The Two Coreys or Denise Richards: It’s Complicated, Warren the Ape is about the trials and tribulations of a D-list celebrity who is attempting to clean up his act, patch up his relationships and scramble his way back into the Hollywood limelight.
Warren “The Ape” Demontague is a brash, cantankerous, out-of-work actor (who also happens to be a puppet). Having gotten a brief taste of success on the former Fox sitcom Greg the Bunny (starring Eugene Levy, Seth Green and Sarah Silverman), Warren’s life has been in a downward spiral ever since the show got cancelled. Over the past few years, Warren has paid more attention to drugs, booze and women than his career – which as of late has mostly consisted of a series of seedy exploitation films, obscure industrials, low-rent theatre productions and a regrettable string of skin flicks.
Could the opportunity of his own reality show be just what Warren needs to get back on top?
The partners of Freestyle executive produced Warren The Ape, a scripted half hour comedy that aired on MTV the summer of 2010.
