Press Release For Immediate Distribution:
Canadian production company Hop To It Productions, is excited to announce their multi-award winning/ nominated web series, “Sloppy Jones” has completed production of Season 1. Hop To It President & “Sloppy Jones” Producer Susan Nation, confirmed that the first six episodes should be available on OUTtv/OUTtv.com in Canada, US, UK, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa summer of 2022. “Sloppy Jones” is executive produced by Colin Mochrie, Amanda Walsh, Victoria Fusca and Dale Hildebrand and supported by OUTtv, Ontario Creates and various mentors.
“Sloppy Jones” was born out of frustration over the lack of good queer roles and representation on screens. Creators Sophie Nation, Jamie Hart and Jonathan Neil Alexander took Inspiration for the series from their love of camp, slasher movies and comedy, and their experiences as servers and bartenders, struggling with bills, relationships, and occasional bad bosses or customers.
“I am delighted to be able to share this hilarious new original show from the talented Sloppy team and very grateful to OUTtv for providing a wonderful platform for fresh queer voices and faces.” Susan Nation.
The slasher comedy series follows the lives of the flawed but relatable protagonists Rory Woods (Sophie Nation) a free-spirited people pleaser; Harper Shelley (Jamie Hart) a book-smart, bisexual bartender; and Thomas Collins (Jonathan Neil Alexander) a calculating b*tch; working at the Sloppy Jones Grill for deadbeat boss Frank Jones (Colin Mochrie).
This Unholy Trinity’s world is upended when they discover Frank’s severed torso in the freezer just as Deborah Jones (Linda Kash), his estranged ex-wife, makes a perfectly timed entrance into their lives. Caught red-handed(literally) by terrified customer and wine heiress Cassie Ley (Lory Mpiana), they each look guilty and no one is safe until the trio find out who killed Frank…and who will they kill next.
“We wanted to write a funny escapist show about twenty-something characters like us, working in the service industry, who aren’t defined by their gender or sexuality. ” Sophie Nation
“It feels really personal. It’s exciting to be able to tell this sort of heightened, chaotic absurdist restaurant story with my friends.” Jamie Hart
Award-winning filmmaker Emily Cohn (CRSHD) directed Episodes 1-5.
Top Canadian talent and mentor Winnifred Jong (Tokens) directed Episode 6 (the original pilot teaser episode).
