The Collectibles is an original comedy web series following the adventures of the world’s foremost super hero team, The Power Posse, who, in the wake of a teammate’s career ending injury, must navigate office politics and leverage their merchandising potential to appease their corporate sponsors.
No easy feat for this quirky collection of characters. Led by the intrepid Super Star, perpetual man-child and heart of the group, we find the The Power Posse reeling from the unexpected (and somewhat suspect) loss of their “beloved” team-mate, The Crimson Pike.The void left in his absence creates “challenge areas” for CorpCo Inc., the corporation that owns the rights to The Power Posse.
With worries about job security, market shares, and public opinion, our uncanny heroes must endure pressures from their corporate overlords as well as internal friction as new recruits are interviewed, relationships are strained and the very future of the team is placed in question.
EPISODE 1: "Pilot to Co-Pilot"
The Power Posse is still reeling from the career ending injury of their comrade The Crimson Pike, when the executives at CorpCo Inc. send Vance Vermicular downstairs to explain there may be a "shift in the team hierarchy." Where some see crisis, others see opportunity.
“I’ll come right out and say it: The Collectibles is the funniest thing I’ve seen all year. Yes, I’ve laughed at other stuff, and even laughed hard on occasion, but not as consistently as I have while watching this show. It is outstandingly hilarious, and yet there’s much more to it than that. The show is also smart, quick on its feet, and loaded with heart… and there’s no way you’d see something like this on regular television. Not without losing something essential, anyway. In short, The Collectibles is why you watch a webseries.” – Ziggy with Doom Cheez CinemaView full episodes and shop The Collectibles merchandise on www.the-collectibles.com
