## the truth, man - like it or not...Brando, DeNiro, Macdonald, Jagger?Sir Mick signs on the dotted line with ABC
Originally thought to be mere internet stupidity – it’s been confirmed: Mick Jagger
will star in an ABC pilot, working title: Let’s Rob Mick
Written by long time Dave Letterman
co-hort, Rob Burnett
and writing partner Jon Beckerman
, its story revolves around the janitor of a hot shit Manhattan high-rise where the Rolling Stones singer lives.
After witnessing Mick's pissing and moaning though he sits in the lap of luxury, the janitor decides then and there to rob the fucker.
Then all hell breaks loose as the zany tale unfolds ‘24’ style – hour by hour, each episode in 'real' time. Since Burnett is from the Letterman school of urbane wacky Manhattan-style comedy, the janitor and his posse of urbane wacky Manhattanites will plot, cajole, quip, kibbitz, schlep, and use whatever other other comedic devices it takes to get the job done.
If the show hits and there’s a second season, a new celebrity will be targeted and mugged.
The series was originally pitched as Let’s Rob Jeff Goldblum
, but The Fly
guy passed, so Burnett and crew went to plan B and brainstormed names till someone blurted out 'Mick Jagger!'
Whoa, good one.
That's out-of-the-box thinking.
They sent Sir Lips the script - long story short: Mick dug it, said yeah, and shot his scenes two weeks ago in New Zealand while on tour with the Stones.
