from great pain comes great laughter






A zany, chaotically-tangled psychiatric comedy.

 

The 30-minute sitcom hilariously seeking the balance between treatment and expression.

 

created by Scott Seargeant

Based on life growing up with a paranoid-schizophrenic sister.


This is a

comprehensive “proof of concept” creation.

LOGLINE:

A single, ideological psychiatrist on the brink of bankruptcy, must replace her employees with seven mischievously conspiring patients to run the office in exchange for free therapy while desperately trying to keep her country club mother from controlling her life.

Issac reflects on the role of “Trent”

How I (narrowly) got here. 

We slid to a stop. Hanging upside down. We climbed out the shattered car windows. I realized physically I would be OK, but mentally, the jury was still deliberating. Bewildered, I stared at my sister while she emphatically explained. 

“Jesus said he wanted to drive, so I let him… I guess I should have asked if he had a driver’s license.”


Imagine the humor, the stories, and the wild scenarios growing up with a psychologically afflicted sibling. That is how I got here. I created a show that is funny, relatable, and timely. A wild and hilarious sitcom with bouts of physical humor that makes therapy fun and picks you up, even when you are hanging upside down.

Actors Talk About Their Mental Health Experiences

Depression, anxiety, paranoia, and addiction are at all-time highs. We need comedic relief that deal with these situations and role models that audiences around the world can relate with. 

 

Temporary Insanity is that comedic relief. The characters are fictitious, but their afflictions are real and run through society’s core. Now is the time to capture the world and give them temporary relief. Now is the time to give them Temporary Insanity.
