It's been a crazy year, and nowhere crazier than in the entertainment industry, which we’re witnessing crumble before us. So we're doing something about it!
The producers of the 5enses Webcast have teamed up with Thumb Butte Distillery to create a variety show with a 21st-century spin, called The TBD Show. It's “Made in Prescott for America.”
It started when the Distillery's Dana Murdock lost her mind and allowed the 5ensesWebcast crew to co-produce. The show will take place inside the Distillery, with me as host. Director Brandon Gabaldon describes the show as “a mixture of SNL and Adult Swim with the setting of The Dave Chappelle Show or Live from Daryll’s House. Each episode will have a theme to complement each skit, guest bartender and musical guest.”
The storyline revolves around the crew producing the show in the building while the Distillery crew is working. The Distillery will magically transform into an atmosphere where guest bartenders from local bars will teach the audience how to make delicious cocktails with Thumb Butte liquors while Zinni and the crew navigate through puppet stories, sketches, a “Short of theWeek,” ads for local businesses and live musical performances. The show is designed to involve the Prescott community throughout.
We’re collaborating with people you might know to create comedy sketches, be guest bartenders and create local ads, highlighting filmmakers and musical guests, and who knows? With enough movie magic, Bill Murray might swing by the set.”
Dana is executive producer, along with John Duncan, Brandon Gabaldon and Robert Zinni as producers. Twice a month we'll be taping musical guests and other segments to air the following Sunday on Facebook Live and TheTDBshow.com. The season premieres online on October 11.

Robert Zinni is a certifiably mad high-school teacher and host of the 5enses Webcast.
