Canadian Screen Award-nominated Tiny Plastic Men is an innovative comedy show that brings the quick laughs of sketch with the emotional punch of a sitcom.
“Gottfried Brothers” is a toy company that makes everything from video games to board games, from toy cars to action figures. These toys need to be tested, and those tests are carried out by the lowest rung of the company, the Prototype Department.
Working in a basement office that looks more like a nerdy frat house, Crad, Addison, and October test toy and game prototypes for quality, danger and defect.
Crad: the single father with anger problems who tries to cope with his crazy friends, and keep his job, while also trying to be a good Dad.
Addison: the not-so-bright fun-lover who slays with the ladies.
October: a little bit steampunk Edward Scissorhands meets Spock, he backs up his friends with his arcane knowledge, drug supply and willingness to get his hands dirty.
Alexandra: the hyper-sexualized boss who thinks nothing of sleeping with an employee – at work, with props – and applies her lack of morals very successfully to business, often to the detriment of the Prototype Department.
Mr. Gottfried: the increasingly senile founder of the company who gets his ego fed by his employees – using elaborately staged stunts to make him think he’s still in charge – while his daughter Alexandra runs the company behind his back.
