Guards the Show is a comedy series that follows the wacky adventures and relationships of a group of “sub-par” lifeguards who must jump in and save their jobs.
In 2015, the college student job of "Lifeguard Manager" usually left me with a lot of free time during hot summer days. I figured--"Hey, lets write a show!"- and we did. Using real employees at a neighborhood pool as actors, the first season of Guards the Show was created in 3 weeks for under $100 (talk about a budget). A premier of the first season was held on August 8, 2015 at the pool and was attended by employees (aka actors) and neighborhood patrons alike. During the production, the show generated a large social media following and had many anticipating the release of the 4-part series.
