The Chief

A sometimes irreverent, sometimes fourth-wall-breaking comedy about a scrappy, no-account, low-budget film crew and their attempt to make a 1970's Cop Show parody starring an actor who literally came out of nowhere to play the lead role. This is 'The Chief'!

Director Statement

'The Chief' is a favorite from Mike Perlman and Adam Henry Garcia's old sketch comedy repertoire. With Mike as the title character, the ferocity is high and the petrol is pumping from the word 'go'! With constant references to the Beat Cop Flicks of the 70's and a hearty embrace of Spike Jonze/Beastie Boys Sabotage video, 'The Chief' aims to give multiple dimensions to the plaid clad machismo beat cop and the auteurs who try and immortalize him.
