A decade after its release, comedy troupe Broken Lizard’s beer-soaked feature comedy “Beerfest” is being revived as a digital series for Warner Bros. Pictures.
Being developed by CW Seed and shortform digital series production unit Blue Ribbon Content, Billy Gerber will produce the shorts. It isn’t clear if any of the Broken Lizard guys are involved in the project.
No word on what the story will be. The original centered on two brothers (Paul Soter and Erik Stolhanske) who travel to Germany for Oktoberfest, only to stumble upon a secret, centuries-old competition described as a ‘Fight Club’ with beer games.
The plan is to launch the series later in 2016 on its 10th anniversary.
