BROKEN RECORDS

A hilariously vapid sitcom parody takes a sinister turn when the characters discover they are trapped in their artificial and repetitious world.

In this lost episode from the oft-forgotten sitcom Broken Records, Milt just had separate dates with both of the McClusky sisters, at the same time! Though Henderson is impressed, his roommate Jane isn’t too happy about it. But when the old degraded VHS tape rewinds and repeats, this clich├ęd sitcom scenario takes an unexpected turn, with the trio fighting for change. Trapped in the same repeating scene, their struggle reveals the dark truth behind the false smiles and constant laugh track. Can’t they just do something different?

Broken Records stars Arian Ash, Chris Burns, and Jesse Malinowski, local professional actors that volunteered their talents to support UCF student filmmaking.
