A fast-paced comedy about cops, crime, and killing time. The Broken Lizard Comedy Group's feature about five Vermont State Troopers stationed on the Canadian border who spend their time toying with speeders and sparring with their rivals, the shifty local police force.

     Thorny, Rabbit, Mac and Foster are passable Vermont State Troopers. Stationed in the boonies on the Canadian border, they spend the bulk of their time playfully toying with speeders, mind fucking stoned joyriders and taking impounded sports cars for spins on the open highway. When they're not on the road, they try to stay on the good side of their fatherly mentor, Captain O'Hagan, and avoid their tactless, thick-necked compatriot, Officer Rod Farva. All in all, they find their work to be pleasantly unchallenging.

     Unfortunately, their quiet existence hasn't gone unnoticed. The state has targeted their low volume station for a potential budget slash. Hoping to avoid the axe, the guys buckle down to impress the higher ups. But success is hard to come by. First, they find it's not so easy to change their brazen style. Then things get more complicated as the Troopers start to hit obstacles set by their law enforcement rivals, the shifty Local Earlville Police force. The local cops smell the demise of their State competition and gladly do what they can to speed the shut down.

     As things begin to look bleak, the State Troopers' new "by the book" operation produces an unexpected gift. During a routine traffic stop, they uncover a drug smuggling operation running across the border to Canada. Sensing salvation, the Troopers race the clock to crack the ring and save their jobs. But they aren't the only ones in the hunt. The Local cops are also on the case, hoping to crack it themselves and put the last nail in their adversary's coffin.

     The sprint is on. An elusive cartoon monkey, a Winnebago full of dope, a bear-groping hunter and a sticky forbidden love affair between Trooper Foster and lovely Local Officer Ursula Hanson all cloud the picture as the Troopers scrap for survival.

"Super Troopers"

The Broken Lizard Comedy Group presents a fast-paced comedy about cops, crime and killing time in... Supertroopers!

Writers, Actors -Broken Lizard, the five man NY and LA based comedy group, has written and performed together for the past seven years, creating stage, film and television material. Broken Lizard originated as Charred Goosebeak, the Colgate University Sketch Comedy Group. The group re-formed in NYC and began performing on stage at various comedy clubs enjoying extended runs with sold-out shows such as "Fishwhimsy" and "The Return of the Biscuit Champion."

     Broken Lizard's first film, The Tinfoil Monkey Agenda, a 30 minute short, was written and performed by the group in the tradition of Monty Python. While achieving acclaim in several film festivals for successfully integrating film narrative with sketch comedy, The Tinfoil Monkey Agenda also became a launching pad for the group's first feature film, Puddle Cruiser.

     Since its completion, Puddle Cruiser has screened at Sundance, SXSW, the London and Berlin International Film Festivals, and was named winner of the Hamptons Film Festival's Grand Prize for Best Film. After the very successful self-distribution tour of the film to college campuses throughout the North East, Broken Lizard completed the negotiations for worldwide distribution including the television premiere on the Sundance Channel in January of 2001. Broken Lizard and the tour of Puddle Cruiser are the subject of the upcoming feature length documentary, Rodeo Clowns, currently in post-production.

     Broken Lizard is currently working under prime-time development deals with both the NBC and Fox television networks. Both of these deals follow their latest television production, Safety School, a prime-time pilot for NBC Television. The group's next feature Super Troopers, executive produced by Danny Devito's Jersey Shore Films, was just accepted to the 2001 Sundance Film Festival.

     Beyond stage, television and film work, Broken Lizard's portfolio of video work includes packaged material for a pilot MTV project and the comedy group's Dante's Levels of Hell has aired nationally on Comedy Central. Cataland Films and Richard Perello serve as producers for Broken Lizard. The group is represented by Creative Artists Agency and 3 Arts Entertainment.
