This ain’t no joke. Deadline reports A&E is developing a new series based on the National Lampoon documentary Drunk Stoned Brilliant Dead.
Directed by Douglas Tirola, the 2015 documentary chronicles the origin and rise of the National Lampoon comedy franchise, which spawned the careers of comedians and filmmakers like Chevy Chase, John Belushi, John Landis, and Gilda Radner.
Though National Lampoon president Alan Donnes insists A&E has no rights to the comedy juggernaut’s story, saying the project “sure won’t be about anything owned by, related to, or branded by National Lampoon,” A&E reportedly insists the project will be entirely fictional.
What do you think? Are you a fan of National Lampoon? Would you watch the A&E series?
