Title: Dogfish Head sitcom
Post by: denny on August 09, 2013, 10:28:24 PM
Really?

Fox buys sitcom based on Dogfish Head - delawareonline.com
The first time Dogfish Head had some major television exposure, it was for its short-lived 2010 documentary series "Brew Masters" on the Discovery Channel. Next time, it could be the backdrop for a prime-time family sitcom on network TV with characters based on the real-life Dogfish founders, Sam and Mariah Calagione, and their two children, Sammy, 13, and Grier, 11. Fox has purchased the show, which would star its co-creator, actor Ken Marino ("Party Down," "The State"), a longtime friend of Sam Calagione who helped him paint the brewery's flagship Rehoboth Beach brewpub before it first opened.

+1 and I like Sam but that's a bit much.

Interesting.  So here's a question for everyone, if they made a sitcom based on you and your family, who would play you?  For myself, I would hope they would pick Antonio Banderas but I'm sure my wife would suggest they pick Horatio Sanz.

I wonder if they are going to have some yeast related emergencies.
Never saw so much under attenuated beer in my life.

Don't care who they get to play me, as long as Denny plays my down and out father.

+1. Me either!  That's my biggest complaint with them. It tastes like all their beers finish at 1.020.

Never met you Keith, but saw you in the video interview from the Magic City Brewfest and I would think they would get Vince Neil to play you.  8)

Ouch, that's a backhanded compliment if I ever heard one. I'm a fan of the Crüe, but Vince has been looking pretty rough the past few years. He sounds like crap live, too - he sings like very other word at best.

Audie Murphy, or maybe Tom Selleck, or maybe Johnny Weissmuller...

Wait, wait, I know!  Mortimer Snerd!  Yeah, that's it!

I'm a 43 year old brewer and father of two. Trust me, I look pretty rough.

IDK, considering most of the crappy shows on Fox, I'd at least give this one a look - at least once.

Ooh, ooh, THAT'S a better idea than Dogfish Head!

I would want Charlton Heston to play me, or better yet, maybe I'll start acting like Heston and people will think they are watching a movie about me being played by Heston.

Nice thing about that is there's options if Horatio isn't available.

Apparently, this was news to Sam. I'll reserve judgement until I see it.

I'm just not the TV watching kinda guy. I'd much rather be brewing. :)

Now if Sam and his family are a secret team of super heros fighting the evil organization InBev and their army of henchmen, the mulletts, I may watch an episode or two.  ;D
