QUOTES FROM THE CREATORS
Quote from Langston Kerman, Jak Knight, Sam Jay and Chris Redd re: Inspiration for the Trailer:
"We wanted the 'Bust Down' trailer to reflect the absurdity of the show. This isn't about warming hearts or giving voice to the voiceless. Our show is about finding comedy in the unimportant. Each episode these four characters escape societal pressures to strive and excel by digging themselves further into a metaphorical hole, which led us to this concept."
Quote from Langston Kerman, Jak Knight, Sam Jay and Chris Redd re: Inspiration for the Series:
"'Bust Down' is rooted in our friendship. Every character is a hyperbolic version of how we see each other, and every story is inspired by the bad choices we each naturally make out in the world. There aren't a lot of straight comedies right now where people truly go for jokes that are raunchy, irreverent, and complicated, and at its core that's what 'Bust Down' is all about. We believe true equality is being able to make a show about nonsense the same way white people have been doing forever. We just wanted to make something so fucking hilarious that it makes people laugh so much that they miss jokes and then have to circle back to watch again."
