Yacht Plan Anniversary Show and Land New Comedy Show

Yacht have landed a new comedy show and will be celebrating their 10th Anniversary in Los Angeles at the Echoplex on Dec. 8th. Their camp sent over these details:

The performance will feature material from all eras and line-ups of the band, with special guests, surprises and prizes and party favors for the audience.

Secondly, the members of Yacht are pleased to announce they are currently developing a comedy show for Amazon Studios, called Support. Expect to see the pilot online early next year.

Official press release from Amazon Studios announcing Support: Sometimes, what happens behind the scenes can be even more entertaining than what happens in the spotlight. That's the idea behind a new series added to the Amazon Studios Development Slate: Support, about a band's life on the road.

The creators of Support are all members of a band called YACHT, who are signed to LCD Soundsystem's label, DFA. And yes, they drew from their own experiences - in dozens of different kinds of bands - to create their show:

"Viewing the awkward, banal (and sometimes even degrading) realities inherent to playing in a band through the lens of comedy has helped us cope with how weird our lives consistently are."

More about Support: Writers: Jona Bechtolt, Jeffrey Brodsky, Claire Evans, Rob Kieswetter (they are the band YACHT)

Logline: An ensemble comedy about life on the rock 'n' roll road, as seen through the eyes of its least glamorous participants: the opening band.

Why Amazon optioned it: The script is funny, has heart, and is about as authentic of a perspective as you can get on the music industry. It's a fascinating look backstage and at the lives of the bands we look up to on stage. These are characters we care about and root for and want to see succeed.

From the writers: "For the past three years, we've imagined our lives on the road as a TV show. In many ways, a tour is a perfect analogue to an episodic series: there's a central cast of characters, recurring locations, absurd scenarios, and new conflicts to resolve every day. There are just too many stranger-than-fiction moments that we've wanted to share, but haven't had the time or outlet to do so. We've been keeping notes of every ridiculous interaction and story in a shared document and we can't wait to unearth them all through the show."
