X-Play Plans 'Love Boat,' 'Three’s Company' Parodies
"We're in pre-casting right now," X-Play president Jeff Mullen told XBIZ. "We'll be selecting shooting dates depending on the performers' availability. We're writing the scripts now and we'll shoot them in August. One in the beginning, one in the end.
"Some people have said there are too many parodies. Are there too many gonzos? We're entertainers. That's what we're doing."
The idea for parodies of "The Love Boat" and "Three’s Company" have been on X-Play’s to-do list for more than a year but running a studio, directing each production and handling marketing leaves Mullen little time to start new projects.
“We’re still a small production company which is the way we like it and we’re having a blast with the success of our 'Not … XXX' titles, but each one of them takes an incredibly long time to create,” Mullen said. “You can slap a movie together, but if the attention to detail is not there, the fans will know it and I guarantee that everything that comes from X-Play will be picture perfect."
