If, as the saying goes, comedy is hard, then editing it can’t be any easier. At least that’s what we expect when we hear that Northern Lights editor Glenn Conte recently edited the eight-episode web series ‘Cop Show’.
Created by SNL alum and comedian Colin Quinn, the show recently debuted on L/Studio. Set up as a satirical behind the scenes look into the production of a crime drama, Cop Show features an A-list lineup of guest stars including Jerry Seinfeld, Amy Schumer and Jim Gaffigan.
The series was created and written by Quinn and is directed by J.D. Amato (‘The Chris Gethard Show’).
Speaking of his work with Quinn, Conte said “It was exciting to work with him to push the comedy to the next level and really help shape the show from the beginning stage.”
“When you’re making a web series about a documentary about a fake television show about fake cops, things can get out of hand very quickly,” Amato comments. “You need production and post-production to be extremely efficient or the whole thing falls apart. The team working on ‘Cop Show’ went above and beyond to make sure we got the best out of our material.”
