truTV has greenlit unscripted sitcom “Tirdy Works,” which is set in a small rural town with four paved roads and a booming new business: arts and crafts created out of moose turds. Set in Somerville, Maine, the series is described as an off-kilter look at entrepreneurship, parenthood, and life told through the eyes of artist Mary Winchenbach and her family.
The logline: What started with a single turd and a simple concept, Mary’s moose-poop creations took America by storm after a local news story went viral. Helping Mary bring her art to the masses are her longtime partner Deb, teenaged daughter Katie, and a colorful cast of locals, including self-described “bitch on the hill” Tammi. In order to make all their dreams come true, Mary must bring the townspeople together to help her growing business, all the while juggling her family and a house full of turds. But winter is coming… can this pot-smoking, wise-cracking, working class hero deliver before the cold snap hits?
“Tirdy Works” is produced by Scout Productions with David Collins, Michael Williams, Rob Eric and Chad Greulach serving as executive producers, with Greulach also serving as showrunner. Michel Bloom is serving as executive producer for Bongo Pictures.
