-- A Modern Newspaper Sitcom
"At its core, DeFlocked is simply about four misfits who are just trying to fit in."
happens when strangers become family?
DeFlocked follows the exploits of four outcasts who are suddenly forced to co-exist and face their deepest flaws, prejudices, fears and desires. It all plays out in the folds of American suburbia on a centuries-old working farm called Lubberland Farms. Behind the hay bales and fertilizer lies a secret animal preserve for the displaced, the disenchanted and the highly disoriented. Hence, the name of the strip.
Meet Mamet, comedy's most lovably derelict self-absorbed sheep. Like his literary namesake, Mamet sees the glass as half-empty...right before trying to stick a sleeping housemate's hand in the water. His reckless behavior meets its reckoning through Cobb, the mature reasoned dog. Cobb's clueless brother Rupert burns with sunny optimism, which contrasts with the dark semi-twisted antics of Tucker, the human boy they're raising as one of their own. In this house, the only thing traditional is the dysfunction.
by fans as "smart, clever and oddly addictive," DeFlocked is a modern
take on the legendary sitcoms of our times. A classic family strip that
blends the dynamic relationship comedy of "All In the Family" with a
"Seinfeld"-esque commentary on the human condition.
"It's like your life...only woollier."
based on Hippocrates' Four Humours, the personalities of DeFlocked are
in eternal conflict - with each other and with the rest of society. We
all see people we know in these four outlandish characters. And the
brave among us will admit to seeing ourselves.
Come join the flock.
