Gooseford Park

NYC-based ventriloquist/detective Van Trillo and his wooden sidekick, Sam Suede, travel to England. Their mission: to save the world by uncovering the guilty secrets that went to the grave with Lord Gooseford.

Synopsis: Presenting Van Trillo and Sam Suede. A fast-talking, no-nonsense detective duo with a difference: Trillo is a ventriloquist, and Suede is a dummy. At home in a place that looks very much like the 1940's in New York City’s Chinatown, Trillo and Suede grapple with an endless array of gangsters and grifters, murderers and misfits, spies and saps, con men and cops, politicians on the take and femmes fatales on the make.

Think Roger Rabbit meets The Maltese Falcon in a film noir Never-never Land populated by Dummies (instead of Toons) as well as your normal run-of-the-mill Bad Guys.

In a series of films reminiscent of the great Bing Crosby and Bob Hope Road to… movies, Trillo & Suede solve crimes and defeat the villains not just in their home town of New York, but across the world.

In Gooseford Park they’re invited to a country house weekend in England – and we all know what happens in English Country Houses. Will they uncover the murderer and return the jewels to their rightful owner? What guilty secrets went to the grave with Lord Gooseford?

Hang on for a wisecracking culture-clashing ride as Trillo and Suede sort the wood from the trees in a world where the dummies are not always the biggest saps.
