American Misfits was a skateboarding show we created for FUEL TV. In the summer of 2010 we took season 3 of the action/comedy series on the road and filmed across the United States. We traveled from Los Angeles, CA to Portland, Maine in a veggie-oil-powered Mercedes hearse with a skateable coffin in the back (yes, you read that correctly). We visited core skate shops in twenty-three cities and had them rally the best skaters around. We met great people, filmed tons of rad skateboarding (and a handful of local bands performing as well) and came home with a mountain of footage. We shot wrap arounds with a stand-up comic named Jason Rouse to tie the show together (warning: if you Google Jason Rouse be prepared to hear explicit words spray from his mouth like a firehose). We cut and delivered ten 22-minute episodes for FUEL TV and we had a great time creating this show.

Starring Laban Pheidias, Ted Newsome, Chris Lambert as SLAM, Jesse Hotchkiss, Nate Sherwood and Jason Rouse as the boss.
