A hilarious new 7- part miniseries with Paul Pecorino, Rob Eco, cameos with Mario Cantone and Randy Rainbow! Edgar Rice Burroughs will be spinning in his grave in this new seven-part miniseries, titled THE DESTRUCTION OF JANE, is making its long-awaited premiere, inspired by the infamous film Tarzan the Ape Man starring Bo Derek and Miles O’Keeffe (for which Derek was proudly named Worst Actress at the 1981 Razzie Awards).
The new miniseries is an unauthorized parody of the King of the Jungle, told from the point of view of Miss Jane Parker, and will begin weekly installments Thursday April 29, at 8 a.m. on YouTube: www.youtube.com/channel/UCR8ctvagY5vxh3ptKS-q3bA/videos. (Yes, that’s 8 in the morning. The filmmakers strongly believe that starting the day with a dose of depravity is beneficial.) A new episode will premiere on every subsequent Thursday and the final entry will be a short film summing up the series. Once posted, each episode will remain available for viewing indefinitely.
THE DESTRUCTION OF JANE stars Paul Pecorino and Rob Eco as Jane and Tarzan respectively, and features special cameo appearances by Mario Cantone and Randy Rainbow. Written by Paul Pecorino and directed by Drue Pennella, THE DESTRUCTION OF JANE was filmed on location in the Catskills and New York City.
Set in the current COVID-19 pandemic, this outrageous comedy follows Jane to the African Jungle where she meets and falls in love with the spectacular specimen we all know as the legendary Tarzan. The 1981 Tarzan film became a massive financial hit due to its dizzyingly unintentional bad taste, and screenwriter Paul Pecorino has set out to push these offensively vulgar boundaries even further.
