The Smiths


“The Smiths”

Half-hour sitcom pilot.

A family of wannabe grifters hides from the Russian mob in a small town, unaware its inhabitants are even worse crooks than they are.

ED, PAM, CODY, and JESSIE, are a family of not so successful grifters on the run from the Russian mob, to which Pam sold Albanian caviar made of cockroaches eggs. HELEN, their neighbor, gets a new house help IVANA, unaware that Ivana is a sentenced war criminal from Croatia.

Helen visits Pam when Ed gasses their living room because his ass turns into biochemical warfare whenever he eats spicy food. Cody helps Ed to win the elections for the city mayor while at the city hall, DAWN, SACHA, and house technician BRIAN, search for the city’s sixty million that vanished together with their old mayor. Ed and Cody find out about the missing millions, visit the city hall, and meet Dawn, Sacha, and Brian, who presents them his hideout in the basement and explains to them that their city runs solely on money stolen from Washington through different scams.

Ed snatches him a sandwich with some extra ingredients, his digestive system does its thing, and Cody and Brian barely escape from the room after Ed releases its deadly “deodorant,” which forces even the cockroaches to run for their life.
