Sunset Television is a Brooklyn-based comedy group that blurs the line between original content and found footage to create a distinct blend of mysterious, hilarious, and bizarre entertainment.
Evolving over the years, their work has taken the form of strange TV shows, undiscovered cult films, and nonsense commercials. They create a unique world where cops become stoners, the dogs are soft and glowing, and Satan loves Chinese food.
Sunset Television has created “
Two Cops,” an original web series, five anthology episodes, several scenes from long-forgotten films for Pitchfork, and music videos for Beirut and Toro y Moi.
They are currently producing a live-action pilot for Adult Swim, and regularly contribute to The Believer podcast, The Organist. Their work can be seen in festivals, galleries, and laptops around the world.
Sunset Television has been featured in:
The New York Times, The Guardian, Rolling Stone, Splitsider, Attack of the Show, NY Mag, Huffington Post, Vimeo Staff Picks, and Videogum.
“Its videos are meant to play like artifacts discovered in serpentine YouTube searches.”
- New York Times
“The Sunset Television team… are unassuming masters of the tragically wry.”
“The original footage is so spot-on in its deadpan approximation of stale aesthetics that even discerning viewers may mistake it for the real deal at first glance.”
“Sunset Television is some old school psychedelic satire, keeping the freak power flame alive in the age of dull bro-centric comedy.”
“De hecho ya hacía tiempo que estábamos esperando algo parecido a Yacht Rock.”
