Seeing a lot of new members on the site, wondering how you found us - friends showing you obscure bootlegs? Catching the show on itunes? It's not on DVD (and at this time MTV doesn't seem interested in releasing it,) so we're always happy to hear how folks are finding our shows.
We always hope to find ways to bring GTB and WTA back, through many of the creative team are off working on other projects this year. Sean Baker's film STARLET (in which there is a quick glimpse of… Continue

Obviously there is not much activity though we, the creators of the show(s) are looking to keep these forums, FAQs and archives open and available to the loyal fans who have followed us here, as well as on our twitter and facebook pages.
No news currently on DVD releases for Warren the Ape - at the present time the outlook seems grim. MTV and other networks are hesitant to release cult shows on DVD these days and would rather spend less money to stream them online. And… Continue

Photographer Brian McCarty got a drunk-dial answering machine message from Warren, and met up with him at Point Dume beach for some recent photos --- the link here.
As yet, no word on a DVD. HuluPlus and Itunes remain the only way for people to catch prior episodes of Warren.
For more information on Greg & Warren check out the FAQ, featured in our FORUMS!

A quick note to all the fans and supporters of the show, we are so greatly appreciative of your kind words and enthusiasm, your help in spreading the word and the interactions we've had on Warren's Facebook and Twitter pages.
We wanted to take the time for a brief Q&A about the show and its fate...
WILL THERE BE A SEASON TWO ON MTV?
At this time we do not know the fate of Warren. MTV has not yet ordered more, and they have several months in which to make up their… Continue

Hello everyone... Sean Baker here. I directed this episode of 'Warren the Ape' and I'm locking myself in solitary confinement to write down my memories of the process. Like Warren's 'Epiphany', I promise this will be self-indulgent.
From its inception, 'Anger Management' was the most cartoonish episode we had written for the season. Originally, we planned for Warren and a celebrity known for anger management issues (Danny Bonaduce) to get in… Continue

Hey everyone who gives a crap, it's me Dan Milano. I directed this episode of Warren the Ape and I also perform your pal Warren. You know, the ape. Quick word of warning - if the formatting in this blog seems off, or font sizes change, then I really apologize and I have no effing idea why. :)
This was the ninth episode to air and… Continue

Welcome Warren the Ape fans, this is Spencer Chinoy, director of 'Support System'. This episode has some interesting origins and was created differently from the other episodes we did. I’ll explain:
Before we got a first season commitment, we shot a short pilot presentation, which featured Greg the Bunny, washed-up and homeless, trying to inflitrate Warren’s reality show. The show was… Continue

Hi everyone.. Sean again. I hope you enjoyed "It Girl." It was the very
first of the new episodes to be filmed and was originally going to be
our premiere episode but was pushed back to later in the season when MTV
considered "Big Score"
to be a better introductory episode.
Milano, Spencer Chinoy and I were co-directing the first few episodes
together, so I consider "It Girl" to be very much a joint venture.… Continue

Hello again. Sean Baker here, director of the "Bad Po-Fo" episode. As I wrote about my other episode, 'Crash Course', the worlds of 'Warren the Ape' and 'Greg the Bunny' have always been entrenched in homage and parody, especially in our days on IFC. This episode, more than any other, demonstrates a return to those roots.
First off.. is the movie trailer for Warren's exploitation film, 'Bad Po-Fo,' We actually shot this… Continue

Hey everyone, Spencer Chinoy here, co-creator of WTA and the director of "Gay Ape," for my first blog entry of all time!
This episode was shot early in the production and we were still ‘finding ourselves’, you might say. It was definitely not one of those episodes that flows… Continue

Hey there, it's Dan Milano - I directed tonight's episode of Warren the Ape and I also perform Warren. "AMENDS" was the fifth episode of our show to be shot. The concept for this story was originally written by my co-creators Spencer Chinoy and Sean Baker and then fleshed out in the writers room
with the addition of Bill Freiberger and myself. Alan Denton and Chris Bergoch also contributed creatively. Episodes are written as structured outlines with some suggested dialogue. All scenes are… Continue

Well, the first episode of WARREN THE APE has finally aired. An entry for "Big Score," has been placed in the episode guide in our forums.
The premiere was a long time coming - we spent a few weeks doing promos for MTV and appearing with Warren at the red carpet for the MTV MOVIE AWARDS. We even had our own press event in Hollywood at which Warren met Paris Hilton, Jennifer Aniston and the cast of Jersey Shore. See the pics on our home page...
We've continued to edit and even… Continue

Well, as of today, the 17th of February, we are nearly half-way through our production of Warren the Ape. We took Warren to "upfronts" in NYC last week, where he appeared in front of an audience of advertising people and media buyers during a presentation of MTV's new shows. We rubbed elbows with Snookie and the Jersey Shore gang, as well as MTV's new crotch-kicking pranksters, the "Dudesons." So that's the kind of company we're keeping lately.
The presentation was a big… Continue

Well, it's been an amazing few weeks. The first two episodes are in the can and early cuts are going to MTV for notes. We're shooting the next two, and I am extremely happy with the footage we are getting. The shows are based on scripted outlines, and many of the scenes are being improvised by the human and puppet cast members on set. We're getting great stuff for the shows, and a wealth of material that will no doubt be mined for DVD director's cuts, viral clip reels and… Continue

Warren the Ape has begun its first two weeks of principal production!!! We're shooting at various locations in Los Angeles and using some of the crew from ITS ALWAYS SUNNY IN PHILADELPHIA. We're working with an amazing group of folks, some new and some from previous productions. We've also begun working with some new puppet and human characters, including Josh Sussman from GLEE as Warren's personal assistant, and Chauncy the Bear. :)
We're hoping to shoot most of our first two… Continue
