It's been more than a decade since the release of Tommy Wiseau's lovably awful melodrama The Room, which continues to run in sold-out midnight screenings across the country. But apart from a few short side projects, fans have had no choice but to patiently wait for a follow-up.
At long last, the wait is over. Wiseau's latest full-scale project — a fascinatingly bizarre-looking sitcom called Tommy Wiseau's The Neighbors — is on the way, and the official website says we'll be able to see the pilot as early as September 2014.
According to the official synopsis,
The Neighbors is a sitcom about the relationship between a group of neighbors who live in an apartment building. The lead character is Charlie, the manager of the building. The tenants are a diverse group of personalities: all of different ages and backgrounds. Constantly bringing their problems to Charlie and his secretary/girlfriend Bebe. The character of Princess Penelope creates a commotion after she witnesses the ghost of her uncle Prince Charles. It is a fresh and humorous look at human behavior through different points of view. This cocktail of characters always guarantees plenty of surprises. The demographic is all inclusive. [The Neighbors]
Fortunately for all of us, Wiseau also posted a characteristically gross and incomprehensible clip from the series — a scene in which he and Lula, a partygoer, discuss their underwear, which happens to have Wiseau's name all over it. Check it out below, and imagine what the other 29 minutes might contain. --Scott Meslow
