Producer Brian Volk-Weiss came to Hollywood to make the next Star Wars but something "funny" happened along the way. After tirelessly working and making a name for himself with his company COMEDY DYNAMICS, Brian became the top independent producer of comedy albums and specials in North America. The runaway success of producing comedy specials for pretty much every A-list comic in the country has allowed him to pivot back to that whole Star Wars dream with the creation of his passion project for NETFLIX called THE TOYS THAT MADE US.
The 8-part documentary series debuting in late December is all about the iconic toy lines of the 80's that are just as popular today as they were back then. Since Brian & I are the same age and grew up collecting the same toy lines, this is the streaming series that Action Figure Junkies have been waiting for! Let's face it, there really was no decade for toys like the 80's and #TTTMU delves into the worlds of how the toys of that era were created and have influenced the current state of the business. THE TOYS THAT MADE US is a NETFLIX original 8-episode documentary series about the history of important toy lines. The first four episodes, dropping on 12/22, will feature Star Wars, He-Man, Barbie, G.I. Joe., LEGO and more!
