NEIGHBROS is comprised of three powerhouse talents. Jaime Jorn AKA Jaime J, Scott Michael Foster, sometimes referred to as Scotty Mike, or Scotty Mikey Frosty, and Laura Prepon, otherwise known as L Boogie, L Pre, or Preez nutz.
Neighbros was birthed in the fall of 2008, at Scotty Mike and Jaime J’s apartment building in Los Angeles, CA. They are in fact neighbors and bros in real life, so naturally they wanted to name the project…”Friends.” Lboogie informed them there is already a show called “Friends”… but, neither had ever heard of it. L Boogie then proposed the name NEIGHBROS. After a hard sell, Scotty Mike and Jaime J realized why the name is funny. They began discussing show ideas and themes in the middle of the driveway, many nights ’til the wee hours of the morning over lattes and gluten free rice chips (Scotty Mike is gluten intolerant, Jaime J still doesn’t know what that means)…then one night, a neighbor yelled “Just shoot the fuckin’ thing already!”
And shoot it they did. After holding for planes, construction, sirens, dogs, lawnmowers, random people dragging chains down the sidewalk (I mean, seriously, who drags chains down the sidewalk?), inconveniencing neighbors and bribing them with cupcakes… the Neighbros team finally matured their idea into the light-hearted comedy that has tickled the funny bone of tens of hundreds of people.
NEIGHBROS is filmed at the actual apartment building of Jaime J and Scotty Mike.
From beginning to end, the responsibilities are divided evenly between the three. Laura provides equipment, props, does lighting, writes up the scripts, directs the episodes, edits the episodes, does makeup and often finds the one reluctant friend to help. Jaime J and Scotty Mike bring the funny and eat cupcakes. Like I said, evenly distributed.
The NEIGHBROS team thanks you so much for watching and hopes you’ll stay tuned for more funny.
