Going where other adult brands have never gone before, FAKEhub Originals, the brother of FAKE Taxi has teased a hilarious take on a daytime police drama.

The Fuzz is a two-part mini-series releasing on FAKEhub about a daytime TV actor (Brad McQueen, played by Ryan Ryder) who finds fame playing the lead role in British-police-drama The Fuzz. Problems begin for Brad when the studio asks for more fights and stunts to be included in the show, so the producers decide to bring in Marc (played by Marc Rose) as Brad’s stunt-double. As Marc becomes more integral to the show, the TV producers decide to give him a co-starring part alongside Brad who becomes jealous as he’s sidelined and Marc’s action-man character, Sancho, becomes the focus of the show.

FAKEhub Head of Production, Lew, commented on the inspiration behind the release:

“We’ve delved into a lot of themes and styles over the course of the past 18 months with our FAKEhub Originals brand, and a couple of times we’ve explored the idea of a film being made where we see the cameras, crew and lights, the actors suddenly break character and become actors in a show. I like the self-awareness of scenes like this.

Now that we’re shooting more FAKEhub Originals […] we thought it would be a lot of fun to create a fake TV show and film the back-stage shenanigans.”

Lew went on to explain the particular appeal of a daytime cop show.

“I’m a fan of buddy movies where two mismatched actors start off hating each other and then bond and grow to love one another, especially these kinds of cop movies from the 80s (hence the costumes in The Fuzz) and we wanted to include various homages and elements from those films in this mini-series.”

From ‘leading man’ to ‘deposed lead character’, Ryan Ryder, expressed particular appreciation for the direction, concept and casting for The Fuzz in our interview with him.

How was it to film The Fuzz?

“It was brilliant, all the cast were amazing and it was so good to be performing a role where I could really have fun with it and be able to purposefully act so bad and over the top that it ends up being so funny. Kudos to Dick Bush who I have worked with for many years for the script and awesome directing and my producer Lew who works tirelessly on everything to make these features work – he also went all out on the costumes!”

What were your favorite parts?

“I loved playing this over-pampered bad actor daytime TV ‘star’. I felt sorry for my female talent, Estella Bathory, as my character pretty much had to shout and be a dick to her all day!”

What were the biggest challenges?

“There was a lot of running around, shooting guns and fighting all day, then having to do the sex scene after. But it all went great and the FAKEhub crew were brilliant, so it was a cool day.”

If you had to choose a favorite character from The Fuzz that isn’t your own, who would it be and why?

“It would have to be my ‘stunt double’ played by Marc Rose who is a brilliant male performer who I have worked with for years -but I wouldn’t be able to pull of the six pack he has! So the casting of my part suited me better lol.”

How did you get into character? Did you study the role?

“Yes the script gets sent before the day so I always read it over to get to know the part. Dick and Lew are really good at casting the right talent for the right parts, as an actor I think this one was right up my street.”

The over-anxious groupie played by the lovely Tina Kay, shared her experience on set of The Fuzz with us as well.

How was it to film The Fuzz?

“Fun, fun, fun!”

What were your favorite parts?

“To meet and to kiss the “real” Brad with [stuff] on our faces after [our encounter with] his stunt!”

What were the biggest challenges?

“No challenges really. Just fun.”

If you had to choose a favorite character from The Fuzz that isn’t your own, who would it be and why?

“Brad’s stunt double (Marc Rose), ’cause he was playing the coolest character who gets to f*ck the real Brad’s hot female fans and perform all the cool stunts. His character is a lot tougher than the real Brad McQueen. He is kick ass.”

Director, Dick Bush, was just as candid about the making of The Fuzz.

How was it to film The Fuzz?

“It was so much fun. It’s always enjoyable when you get to do something a little different. And having the cast run around with guns, parodying day-time cop shows was a joy! At one point, Marc Rose started laughing out loud during his gunfight -he suddenly felt like he was young again […]!”

What were your favorite parts?

“I love the moments where the cast get to over-act, the turns to look at the camera, etc. The title sequences were hilarious to edit together. I’m hoping the audiences get that daytime cop show feel as well!”

What were the biggest challenges?

“The biggest challenges were managing to shoot everything in a single day. We were shooting at a sex club and we actually had to move locations because they were opening. Very strange when you’re trying to shoot and there are several horny, wrinkly old men wandering around. It’s also quite hard to get the performers to not make gun noises as they’re shooting! I kept telling them, I’ll put those sound effects in afterwards!”

If you had to choose a favorite character from The Fuzz that isn’t your own, who would it be and why?

“I loved Alex Donald’s character, DI Grant. The guy’s in charge, shouts orders at Ryan’s character and constantly has a cigarette in his mouth, then we see the actor playing him is actually super camp!”

How did you get into character? Did you study the role?

I had a small role as the director… so naturally I spent 14 weeks on an intense acting course and studied master directors… or maybe I just winged it.
