Anyone heard anything about this? It's a comedy set in the future but a 1970s future -

Love the fake wood paneling, but see no reason just from that to even watch the first episode.

Hard to watch the 'first episode' when it's a film.

We'll have to wait and see.
In the end it'll depend on the balance between comedy elements and homage to productions from that era.

My bad, the set was so cheesy I thought it to be a TV show.

Seems like a premise that would work better on TV than as a movie, intentional cheese or no.
