The "Dirty Sons of Pitches" are celebrating the art of filmmaking this week as they pitch movies about Hollywood, filmmaking, and the studio system, in honor of the new Coen brother film, "Hail Caesar." Ben dishes his opinions on a group of new 2016 releases, the guys talk about an absurd Lifetiem original TV series that was canceled, and discuss the next three episodes of "Z Nation" in their season two viewing. Along the way they talk about what the future of Google will be like, whether Bing is the symbol of the revolution, their love for Liev Schreiber, the most unfortunate FDA-approved product, and whether the glut of superhero films will be looked at as the Western was in the 50s in the future.
Available on iTunes.

-Behold the amazing TV show following Lizzie Borden... fighting crime?
-"World of Tomorrow" may be one of the weirdest Oscar front-runners you'll find, and available on Netlfix streaming to boot.
-Ben blasts "The Boy" and "The Fifth Wave" for being predictable and then blasts them even further. We pity Liev Schreiber.

-This Week's Pitch -- Movies About Movies!
-Ben pitches a cursed script that will bring the apocalypse if produced, a family drama where the family members unknowingly play their parts in the film-version, and a dumb director trying to make his magnum opus about the South winning the Civil War.
-Nate pushes for a relaunch of the HBO Latin series "Magnifica '70," a comic docudrama about working for Cannon Films in the 80s, and a workplace series for found footage editors.
