Four friends -- Michael, Gabe, James, & Marcela -- acquire their very own weekly prank show on TV. After receiving an accidentally exorbitant budget, the gang wastes it all on a mansion and are forced to put together an episode in 24 hours on a shoestring budget. And if that's not bad enough, they have to include the studio head's "simple" brother -- Trey! Watch the shenanigans that ensue in the pilot episode as the four try to scrape by with an adequate show at the very least.
Shenanigans is a narrative comedy show about four friends filming a weekly prank show with almost no money after irresponsibly wasting their accidentally large budget on a house and a car. The real prank is on them as their own incompetence lead to a string of underwhelming pranks, constantly endangering their status as an active television program. The show much more closely follows the development of the four main characters' relationships with one another than it does the actual production of the show they are required to make. Shenanigans is a completely student-run television series under the Texas Student Television network at the University of Texas at Austin. Shenanigans will air six 30-minute episodes to be completed by the end of May (end of UT spring semester) on the TSTV channel which broadcasts to all on-campus televisions as well as some areas in central Austin which can be watched by antenna. This series poses as a learning opportunity for UT students for both the production and creative aspect of broadcasting a television show.
