When I was a kid, if a TV show got popular, people would inevitably ask, "Are the Harlem Globetrotters going to guest-star?" But nowadays, TV fans always want to know, "Is there going to be a movie?" And that's exactly what Ugly Americans creator Devin Clark was asked in a recent interview with Bubble Blabber:
John: Do you think itd be possible to have an Ugly Americans feature film either direct to DVD OR something in theaters?
Devin: I think when we went out to kind of create the premise of Ugly Americans and build out this world we wanted something that would really just feel like lush, fully-formed universe. So, initially, that was just that we could have an endless supply of ideas of for stories and new episodes. But I think it really did give it such a great feel as a world and the city of New York and the world of Ugly Americans that, yeah, hell yeah. I mean and we’re poking fun of cinema and genres all the time. We go very out there with the look of the show. So Ugly Americans as a movie, for sure, we could definitely pull that off.
Will they give us money to do it? That’s another question. I just have my fingers crossed for another season, so a movie would be like shooting the moon.
Movie or not, there is definitely an all-new episode tonight at 10:30/9:30c. It doesn't guest-star the Harlem Globetrotters, but it does feature a special appearance by Lisa Lampanelli, so don't miss it.
