Five disillusioned artists exploit Internet culture in a shameless attempt to become famous. After a failed pilot, the group schemes to organize a charity boxing match to raise awareness for Diabetes. Plagued by narcissism, ignorance, and unfounded enthusiasm, the group attempts to capitalize on social media’s self-aggrandizing activism.
“Win the Internet” was written by PlanetTown Films and produced in association with Polymyth Productions. PlanetTown is a comedy group founded by five iO Theater alums. After meeting and graduating from iO together, Nick, Nate, Trevor, Will, and Jim formed the PlanetTown web series, which features close to 100 comedy sketches. They soon realized the web was too small to contain them, so they wrote a television pilot. About the internet.
