STATUS: previously in development (2010-2011 season)
DEVELOPMENT STAGE: ordered to series
DESCRIPTION: (from Planet Green's press release, January 2010) YES MEN is an irreverent new series that's part Ashton Kutcher's Punk'd, Ali G and Michael Moore-like mini-documentaries. It spoofs reality and current affairs in a hilarious and playful way as Andy Bichlbaum and Mike Bonnano pose as corporate and government spokespeople from countries around the world. These YES MEN have become a pop-culture phenomenon. Their pranks are elaborate and the results are profound as they consistently challenge the accepted status quo on a variety of topics. As a pair of creative hoaxers, the YES MEN turn initial impressions about societal falsehoods upside-down, through impersonation, infiltration and sophisticated public theatre. YES MEN is produced by Renegade Pictures for Planet Green.
