"Special Unit" is a balls-out comedy written by comedian Christopher Titus, the guy that brought you five 90-minute comedy specials and the hilarious show, "Titus." He has a Writer"s Guild nomination for his TV show, and has written 6 groundbreaking comedy specials that although edgy, always take you to the light. Special Unit was written after hanging out with his friend with CP, Michael Aronin, and hearing how the disabled are treated. Either they are an elf in a Christmas movie (if they are a little person) or they are a sad wheelchair guy or a "gimp" used to show how much heart the lead actor has. So, Titus wrote something that has never been done before. The premise?
Due to the Fairness and Disabilities Act, the LAPD is forced to hire four handicapped undercover detectives. Titus plays Garrett Fowler, a cop/criminal who has to train them or he loses everything-- his job, his girl, and maybe his life.
Titus was always hearing from his disabled actor/comedian friends that they couldn't get roles in movies, especially not leading roles, so he decided to do something about it. With your contribution, "Special Unit" will be the best comedy movie since The Hangover. Titus and his crew expect it to be so successful that there will be 2 sequels, ala Hangover. This is your opportunity to be a part of the funniest, ballsiest, and most brilliant comedy movie in a long time, and to help change the conversation of disabled people in the world. Cast includes Josh Blue, Brad Williams, Michael Aronin, Christopher Titus and a few surprises. Give long, give hard and thank you.
