Star-ving is a web series of episodes running eight to ten minutes, based very loosely on the life of David Faustino from Married... with Children. His co-star is Corin Nemec, who played the title character in Parker Lewis Can't Lose. The start date for the episodes was January 16, 2009. The series is a production of FNB Entertainment LLC in association with Sony Pictures Television, webcast on Crackle.

History[edit]

In 2006, Faustino and his writing partners, Corin Nemec and Todd Bringewatt, started a production company called F.N.B. Entertainment. In 2007, they wrote a two-page treatment for Star-ving, which they took to director Sam Kass, a former writer and producer on Seinfeld. After shooting the pilot, they took it to Crackle, where twelve webisodes were ordered.[1] In the series, "Faustino plays an exaggerated version of himself — he's broke, can't find a job and his wife has left him for Coolio."[2] Faustino has said of the show, "We don't push the envelope, we're shredding it."[3]
