About Slug Street Scrappers

A group of elite martial artists called "Scrappers" compete for the rank of "Toughest in Town". But when new facts about the true purpose of the Scrappers emerge, things on Slug Street become a little more... dangerous.

Slug Street Scrappers is an action-packed, comedic TV show inspired by the fighting video game genre of the early nineties (e.g. Streets of Rage, Mortal Kombat, Street Fighter, Double Dragon). The series employs an over-arching storyline that contains both humorous and dramatic elements.


The Intention Behind Slug Street Scrappers 

"I set out to create a modern day series that would emulate some of the action media I grew up with in the late eighties and early nineties - something that would really hit home with fellow fans. Back then the storylines and performances in action films, TV, and fighting video games were very melodramatic, over-the-top and, in many cases, flat-out unbelievable. One glaring example would be the premise behind the video game Streets of Rage (aka Bare Knuckle): a jaded ex-cop takes to the streets to defeat a crime syndicate, using his martial arts skill to beat up one punk after another. Oh yeah, and he does all of this at the ripe old age of 22. But those were the times, and they were good ones at that.

I knew that if I was going to create a nostalgic, video game-esque series about martial artists battling it out, I would need to cast it with legitimate, world-class martial artists and/or physical performers and I would need to make both the fight choreography and action cinematography actually feel like you were playing a game of Mortal Kombat, Street Fighter or Streets of Rage (in other words, a lot of side shots and wide shots - to let the martial arts drive the action instead of the movement of the camera). I would also need to make sure both the acting and costumes resonated with audiences in a similar way (hence the over-the-top acting style of the characters and their bright, colorful costumes). And although we filmed the entire series on a shoe-string budget, and had to make a few comprises here and there, it does an excellent job transporting the audience back to a time where a crime-ridden city could be saved with a few thousand punches & kicks - and even a fireball or two."
