Directorial trio JEAN has joined L.A.-based Community Films for U.S. representation. JEAN, pronounced like the pants that are made of denim, is comprised of Eric Eckelman, Armand Prisco and Natalie Prisco. Known for their comedy chops, and pulling believably odd performances out of their actors, they have created comedy-driven work for Lifetime, Delta, AT&T, Honda, TBS and Visa.
Natalie Prisco and Armand Prisco got their start in advertising at McCann Erickson and eventually moved over to MTV where they met Eckelman. The three hit it off immediately and wrote and directed many comedic spots for MTV from 2007 to 2010. Upon leaving MTV, they transitioned their comedic sensibilities to directing commercials, short films, writing promos for Conan and selling a television series they created for HBO.
Prior to joining Community, JEAN had been with Decon.
Executive producer Carl Swan--who heads Community with EP Lizzie Schwartz--said of JEAN, “They have a super fresh talent for comedy and know just how to strike the balance between quirk, edge and relatability in their work. It’s those very funny human moments which are true in all of us that makes JEAN’s brand of comedy so sharp and distinct.”
