“Rising from the ashes of spunky original comedies like Flight of the Conchords, It’s Always Sunny…, and Pinky and the Brain is GOOD MORNING RABBIT, the next can’t-miss television comedy series. “
I adore It’s Always Sunny… but it’s the inclusion of Pinky and the Brain in the description that has me dying to see this rag-tag comedy pilot written and directed by Hadley Klein. The show’s about friends, Boxer and Mira, who are determined “to celebrate every one of our great nation’s real holidays.” Come one, who hasn’t occasionally wanted to celebrate National Sorry Charlie Day?
Kristina Apgar (Privileged, Terminator: Sarah Connor Chronicles), who is also one of the pilot’s producers, is Mira and Alex Frost (Drillbit Taylor, Elepant) is Boxer. They are joined by supporting cast members newcomer David Craig, Summer Glau (Terminator: Sarah Connor Chronicles, Firefly), Lauren Benz Phillips (iCarly, Drake & Josh), Leven Rambin (Terminator: Sarah Connor Chronicles, All My Children), Carter Jenkins (Aliens in the Attic, Surface), Brooke Stone (The Ugly Truth), and Ignacio Serrichio (Privileged, Ghost Whisperer).
Last weekend they headed out into the woods to begin shooting the pilot. All week long, Hadley updated his blog with pictures from the set and I fell in love with the look of the show. So pretty. Which is why I’m so excited to post a few photos that Hadley only shared with a few of us.
Check out these awesome GOOD MORNING RABBIT shots by Shari Simonsen:

crazy Junkyard Sisters Boxer and Mira go to
in search of the perfect hamburger for National Hamburger Day.
A shot of the entire junkyard set where the final scene of the pilot takes place,
with Alex Frost (Boxer), Kristina Apgar (Mira), Summer Glau (Lucy), and Lauren Phillips (Ethel).
I really hope they can sell this pilot or, at the very least, find a way to get it out there for us. Because I can’t wait to see how it all turns out.
