Commissioned specifically for Movie Network Channels' branded online video platforms, Henry & Aaron’s 7 Steps to Superstardom follows two clueless best friends Henry & Aaron, on their quest for fame and fortune, led by their insane producer Danny Danielson, who provides them with awful advice on how to become international superstars, at any cost.
The show is a dynamic, hilarious and inventive trip through popular culture and suburban life. The premiere webisode "Adopt Foreign Orphans" sees Henry excitedly preparing for impending fatherhood, but Aaron struggles with his loss of freedom.
The webseries guest stars Australian comedy veteran Peter Rowsthorn (Kath & Kim,The Jesters), Ben Sutton (Diggy Bones, The Big Hoo Ha) and Benj D’Addario who recently starred as The Ugly One opposite Gemma Ward in her international stage debut.
Henry Inglis and Aaron McCann were the inaugural Movie Extra Webfest winners and were chosen from more than 100 submissions. They received a $50,000 production budget and post production services to produce the seven-part webseries.
Further details of the 2011 Movie Extra Webfest competition will be announced in coming weeks as Movie Network Channels seeks to expand its digital brand footprint across emerging media platforms.
