HBO ORDERS COMEDY SPECIAL “MY DAD WROTE A PORNO”

A man that goes by the moniker Rocky Flintstone has written a series of critically acclaimed novels. These novels will never be shortlisted for the Pulitzer Prize in Fiction, nor be an assigned MyDadWroteAPorno-300x183reading in a classic literature course.  Yet, the gold standard programmer HBO has ordered the comedy special My Dad Wrote a Porno, based on the Belinda Blinked novel series that he penned. The novels tell the story of the sexual exploits of Belinda Blumenthal and her work in the sales and marketing department of the fictional company Steeles Pots and Pans. Belinda’s work takes her around the world, where she meets various sales reps, suppliers, and business associates. Many characters regularly appear throughout the series, although some are introduced only to never be heard from again, or even change name halfway through a chapter. It is unknown if the lack of continuity is due to:

  • Belinda being the classic unreliable narrator
  • Rocky intentionally making the audience notice his supposed lack of storytelling skills
  • Rocky is an actual poor storyteller whose writing is so bad that it is good.

Belinda Blinked is described as a comical modern story of sex, passion, and erotica.  Jamie Morton, the son of the author of Belinda Blinked, will headline My Dad Wrote a Porno.  Morton and friends James Cooper and Alice Levine currently execute a podcast that coincide with Belinda Blinked chapters. Morton released the following statement upon announcement of the MyDadWroteAPorno_pic2-150x150comedy special: “We’re over the moon and honored that HBO has decided to help bring Rocky Flintstone’s bad dad-rotica to the world – what are they thinking?!” The response to the live show has been incredible so far, so we can’t wait for more people to see it.” With fans that include Elijah Wood, Daisy Ridley and Michael Sheen, in just over three years My Dad Wrote a Porno has been downloaded over 100 million times.  Read in posh British voices, the podcast is comparable to an absurd juxtaposition of Masterpiece Theatre and the long gone Real Sex.   The HBO comedy special will be produced by Done and Dusted; executive produced by Jamie Morton, James Cooper, Alice Levine and Rocky Flintstone; directed by Hamish Hamilton. Watch for it!
