Quote of the Week

Carey’s first and only follow-up to his directorial debut The World’s Greatest Sinner was every bit as weird and offbeat a project. It was funded in large part by his friend John Cassavetes. The proposed 70 minute TV pilot entitled Tweet’s Ladies of Pasadena focused on a gardener named Tweet Twig (Carey) who dreams of clothing all the naked animals in the world. Not strange enough for you? Get this: he’s married to a lady wrestler and is the only male member in a knitting club run by old ladies. Sadly, the truly bizarre show was never greenlit. I guess Hollywood just wasn’t ready for a Tim Carey-style TV series.
