Broken Lizard Swim To Salmon

The Broken Lizard comedy troupe will begin production of “The Slammin’ Salmon” in January with indie financing reports Variety.

Kevin Heffernan will direct and co-star along with Broken Lizard members Jay Chandrasekhar, Steve Lemme, Paul Soter and Erik Stolhanske.

Story, to be penned by the troupe, revolves around a restaurant owner and former heavyweight champ who pits his wait staff against each other in a “Glengarry Glen Ross”-like competish.

By raising finance independently, it allows the gang to get it into production before a potential SAG strike.
