Premiere Screening of BuyTown: A Comedy Pilot

Wednesday, April 19, 2017
7:00pm – 8:00pm

Storrs Campus
Laurel 102

The mundane shift for employees of a small-town Connecticut grocery store as they battle unruly customers, power failure, wild animals, and the discovery that their newly hired cashier may not be as innocent as he seems.

BuyTown is a half hour comedic television pilot episode funded through a UConn IDEA grant. The pilot was written by, produced, and stars Ryan McCarthy, Ivan Carlson, and Benjamin Piascik and was filmed over three consecutive nights at a local grocery store in early 2017.

BuyTown will premiere April 19 at 7pm in Laurel Hall 102. All are invited to attend and offer feedback following the screening. For more information please visit
