TV show description:
This TV series follows Zach Stone (Bo Burnham), a recent high school graduate who’s pursuing the new American Dream; he’s going to be famous with no talent whatsoever. From Zach’s attempts to become a celebrity chef or a ring-tone recording artist to purposefully going missing, he’ll try any avenue to get noticed and stop at nothing until he reaches fame. Chaos, awkwardness and embarrassment ensue in this clever and timely series that serves as a comedic send-up of today’s current culture of instant celebrity.
Instead of investing his time and money in a college education, Zach is spending his life savings to pay a film crew to follow him around. Though the cameras may impede on quality time with his college-bound friends and drive his family insane, Zach is convinced this “behind-the-scenes footage of a pre-celebrity” will be a hot commodity when he’s one day, inevitably famous.
