CANOGA PARK, Caif.—Zero Tolerance Entertainment and Popporn are teaming up to make fantasies come true with the Official Fantasy Island Parody. The porn parody is loosely based on the long-running prime-time hit that launched white-suited Mr. Roarke (Ricardo Montalban) and sidekick Tattoo (Hervé "De plane, de plane" Villechaize) into the pop-culture stratosphere.
Popporn creative team Brian Bangs and Spock Buckton have created an original, comedic spoof of the show focusing on Mr. Roarke and Tattoo as they try to keep Fantasy Island in business during the worldwide economic collapse. Once again, the Popporn team and Zero Tolerance director Mike Quasar will be collaborating to shoot and produce the film, which will feature Zero Tolerance contract star Kagney Linn Karter.
“Buckton and I were just small kids when Fantasy Island was in its broadcast prime. We don't recall much of the show except Khan and a small person who sounded like he was speaking Klingon dressed in brilliant, bright white suits,” says Popporn’s Brian Bangs. “We have designed a script that is just shy of brilliant (it would have been brilliant if we were allowed to use an actual Gila monster as called for in the script)—but shy of brilliant is a-okay by us.”
Mr. Roarke was the quirky and enigmatic overseer of a mysterious island somewhere in the Pacific Ocean, where people from all walks of life could come and live out their fantasies, albeit for a price. Production on the official parody is scheduled for July.
