"Static," the New IC Places / FunnyBrand777 Skit Comedy Show, Begins Principal Photography in Los Angeles

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - Nov 4, 2011) - IC Places, Inc. (OTCQB: ICPA) -- IC Places Entertainment and FunnyBrand777 have officially begun production on "Static," a hilarious irreverent look at the world of modern entertainment. The show is being filmed at HI Point Studios in Los Angeles.

"Static," dubbed as "A.D.D. Theater" by critics, takes on topics that most shows won't. Using a heavy dose of Political Incorrectness exposed by a multi cultural cast, "Static" tackles everything from commercials and movie trailers to racism and sexism using a variety of unique characters and thoroughly original writing. There's no need to grab the remote because "Static" does it for you, taking you on a journey "through the channels" that will leave you laughing, groaning and most importantly, hooked.

The Production...

Steven Samblis - Co-Creator / Executive Producer, IC Places Entertainment is a Division of IC Places, Inc. Other projects include 1st Look, Instant Movie Review and The Hollywood Fastlane.

"I am very excited to build IC Places Entertainment's first television production around this brilliant cast and my co-creator Brandon Gibson. I have had the privilege to sit in on the table reads and script development for the show and can promise the show will be a comedic roller coaster," said Steven Samblis, excutive producer and President of IC Places, Inc.

Brandon Gibson - Co-Creator / Producer / Director and Cast member of Static. Credits include 52 National commercials, Disney Channel's "Prankstars," Tonight Show w/ Jay Leno, Nickelodeon's "Fresh Beat Band" to name a few.

"I was originally inspired to create this show by a combination of In Living Color, Upright Citizens Brigade and Monty Python with even more irreverence," said Brandon Gibson, Co-Creator and Director. "With this stable of funny people combined with the original content and show format, there's no doubt we will be making Television history. There's already a buzz about this thing which tells me we're on the right track. I firmly believe that once other sketch shows see what we are working on, they will instantly become depressed and most likely suicidal... and all of Hollywood will collectively pronounce us as Godparents to their children. I predict that even Lorne Michaels himself will start dressing like me... just sayin."
