Hamilton, Ontario — May 9, 2014 — Employees at any workplace can quickly become a family, even more so when it so happens the employees actually happen to be a family. That familial dynamic is amplified ten-fold when weâ€™re talking about four brothers running their fatherâ€™s towing business. All of a sudden everything youâ€™d ever expect from four brothers in such close proximity becomes reality, icing the cake of a hilariously comedic situation on the towing-based web series Bill & Sons Towing.
â€œI grew up on story ideas focusing on brothers and families. I grew up with two brothers as well, and itâ€™s just such an interesting dynamic with brothers,â€ says Mark De Angelis, the web seriesâ€™ co-creator and head writer.
Bill & Sons Towing stars the members of the comedy troupe The Imponderablesâ€“Jon Smith, Eric Toth, Dave Brennan and Tony Lombardoâ€“as Jon, Eric, Dave and Tony Vanderchuck, four brothers who took over their fatherâ€™s towing business following a heart attack. For De Angelis, heâ€™d always been interested in writing a TV or web-based series centred in the world of towing, so when the opportunity came to work with The Imponderables to further develop what would become the series, De Angelis jumped at the chance.
â€œIâ€™m a big fan of shows like Taxi or Cheers, that show thatâ€™s sort of just set in one location,â€ he says. â€œIâ€™ve always been fascinated by the idea of towing guys. No matter what they do they start off their day being hated by everybody in the world.”
