Overview

The Very Real Stories of D.C. was the seventeenth show to hit the Paradox Network. The show followed the events of politicians in D.C., and wacky adventures they got into. The shows creators confirmed the show would take no biases and make fun of whoever would make a good story. 

It was proposed to Brooke Jordan by Oscar Newman and Eddie Sanford in early 2014, but the show was shelved. Following the 2016 election, show was picked up for 10 episodes. Its first episode debuted March 7th, 2018. It only takes two weeks to make an episode due to the small amount of needed assets and handful of cast. A political show doesn't need a full writing staff, the real world writes itself.

A second season was confirmed, and a parody of Alexandria Ocasio Cortez was revealed, but no more information was released. The 'Good-Berry Leak' revealed that the teaser would be shown off at the San Diego Comic-Con 2019 and would hit the network that October. The leak also showed that the season would have 10 episode too. 

At San Diego Comic-Con, it was revealed that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Mitt Romney, Bill Barr, Rudy Giuliani, and the 2020 presidential candidates would become prominent characters and confirmed that the second season would be based on whatever political events happened in the fall, but did intend on most episodes being focused around the 2020 election. The season would have 10 episodes and would not take a hiatus unless the political scene got too boring to make a show about (little did they know). Brooke Jordan confirmed a 3rd and 4th season were being discussed behind the scenes.

Season two would be the first to have cold opens, which would be written and directed five days before the episode aired. The season would also consecutively air with zero breaks. This was something changed with Season 3 and 4 as it overworked the production team.

In October 2019, Oscar Newman confirmed a third season had officially been ordered by Jordan, and that once they finished season 2, they would be going full steam ahead on season three as to not miss the impeachment story. This relieved many fans as they had believed that Newman and Sanford would abandon the project. Jordan confirmed on Twitter that they had intentions of keeping the show going until the election, and then deciding what to do from there. 

Jordan confirmed on Twitter on October 26th that Season 3 would start airing two weeks following the end of season 2. she also confirmed that season 4 had been ordered. Both seasons would contain 13 episodes.

Season 3 was confirmed to take a step-back from Trump humor in order to focus more on the entirety of D.C. Starting with 'Are You the Father?' 'Daddy Hairy Legs' and 'America's Leaders'.

The audience began to notice that after Trump's acquittal, the Trump on the show became more sinister, and no longer cared for repercussions. This was proven in the season 3 episode 'What's Past is Bloomberg'.

Oscar Newman said on Twitter on December 31st 2019 that Season 4 would start in July or August of 2020 because the crew needed a break.

A fifth season was ordered by Jordan on January 20th, 2020. Oscar Newman said that the fifth season would take place during the election and its fallout. The fifth season would consist of 13 episodes.

Trivia

  • Oscar Newman said about Impeach at the Beach's Cold Open "So much shit happened the day we wrote it. We did our best."
  • The episode Sensitive Information was originally titled Back In Iraq and was going to be about U.S. troops returning to Iraq. It was rewritten following the Baghdadi raid.
  • The episode titled WWIII was originally supposed to be titled 'Nancy Pelosi's Quid Pro Quo' and was supposed to be about the Democrats refusing to hand over the impeachment articles to the Senate. The episode was rewritten and almost entirely reanimated after the U.S. airstrike of the Iranian embassy in Iraq on January 2nd. This caused the episode to be delayed five days.
    • Eddie Sanford also said that any episodes pertaining to the Iran nuclear war arc were considered un-canon as they interfered with their future plans for the show.
  • The episode 'Corona Mona' was originally titled 'Old White Guys'. However, because it was changed during the script writing phase, no animation or crunch time was required to change the episode.
    • Eddie Sanford said that they would probably repurpose the episode into the first presidential debate episode, if an old white guy wins the democratic nomination.
  • When asked why Mnuchin and Ross were included in the BITC even though they aren't billionares, Sanford said "Rich people like to inflate their numbers. Of course they'd pretend to be billionares to join a club."
