The 'Bu is a 2003 award-winning television series from Channel 101's short film contest,[1] it mocks the soap opera television genre and satirized life in Malibu, California (hence the reference to "the 'bu" as a slang name for Malibu) and has seven finished episodes, with an eighth episode "apology" also submitted after the creators ended the show. It was created by The Lonely Island, it stars Andy Samberg, Jorma Taccone and Sarah Chalke, and was directed by Akiva Schaffer. The group's website references the show as "vintage" and cites it as an example of their early work.[2] Three more episodes were filmed after the original cast abandoned the series, bringing the total number of episodes to 11 but it was cancelled in April 2005.
