PillVille

They even gave me a TV show?
Imagine a world where pills, tablets, and capsules, act like humans!
That’s PillVille.
My name’s Bill the Pill, and as you might have guessed, that’s where I’m from. It’s a magical place where the effects, (and side effects) of drugs form our personalities.
PILLVILLE is an Animated TV Show for adults! It’s sarcastic, silly and has just the right amount of ridiculous to be taken seriously.
PillVille is about you and the world you live in, from medication to recreation. The only difference is in this reality; we’re walking, talking versions of the reasons you take us.

The Logline

Bill is a witty and sarcastic young fella recovering from the usual vocational problem that placebos, like himself, have.

His task will be to climb up in the competitive corporate world inside the Pharmaceutical Industry, find success, friendship, and love, in a Metropolis overdosed with millions and millions of other animated and anthropomorphized pills, tablets, and capsules, in a city called “PillVille.”

PillVille Rules

💊
PillVille is today’s world where pills live instead of humans.
💊
The pills think, feel, and have emotions just like us. Their society is as awful as ours.
💊
The pills are medicine, drugs, or supplements. Perscribed and recreational.
💊
The pills can have the personality of the disease they allegedly cure or the effects (and even the side effects) of the drug they represent.

Bill

The pill

age:

Young (mid-twenties)

personality:

Witty, Sarcastic, Lazy, Laid back

hobbies:

Loves happy hours and after-offices

not good:

(at all) with women

Bill The Pill is potentially a hero with a huge vocational problem: He’s a Placebo (A drug or medication that has no medical purpose whatsoever).

That’s why his father sent him to the big city. Bill’s distant aunt is Dr Lisa Von Valum PhD, CEO of the Big Pharma Company, the biggest pharmaceutical company in the world. Taking pity on him, Aunt Lisa offers Bill a job as a lobbyist working from her office.

Meanwhile, a particularly annoying side-effect of Bill’s young and reckless personality, is that he has developed a dependency on wittiness and sarcasm. That’s a not well-appreciated condition while trying to move up in the competitive Pharmaceutical Industry.

How can he make it in a cut-throat indsutry when he’s just a placebo?

Bill will have to learn quickly, work smart and overcome his crippling self-doubt if he is to help fend off the FDA, the WHO the CDC, and even the DEA when they come calling.

Dr. Zack (PhD)

The Yoda

Professor Zack (Pro-zack) is the PillVille psychiatrist. He thinks he knows how to resolve almost any problem and treats many of our characters. He lives with his own depression because, being such a great shrink, he has no positive results with any patient.

Prozac

The Assistant

The Meta Character

Behind a discreet facade of spotless perfection, there is a pervert with cruel intentions and amoral behavior. Otherwise, he’s a pretty neat guy who enjoys pointing out some of the flaws of our script work, like over exposition in dialogues, impossible plot twists, and inconsistencies in the behaviors of the characters. As we told you. He’s a pervert.

Gretchen the Spy

The Other Girl

She’s an intern in the Corporate Spies Department at Pharma Ville (Big Pharma Company’s rival). She’s being trained as a spy, slowly learning how to take any physical shape or form. Eventually, she will be able to become any pill, tablet, capsule, or pellet in PillVille). Her training will be interrupted to infiltrate The Big Pharma Company.

X-Tasy

The Ex

Bill’s most powerful rival. Rich, famous, androgynous, techno-pop star and a professional douche bag. He’s Jenny Slim’s ubiquitous and recurrent ex-boyfriend.

What does
PillVille look like?

Imagine a tower in a shape of a syringe!

K-Town

Just a few blocks in PillVille’s downtown. All the Blisters/Buildings have Korean Characters on them.

This semi-shitty downtown neighborhood is just a few blocks from Bill’s office. A perfect housing solution for a young, low-level executive from the Big Pharma Corporation. The K is from Korean as it has a majority of Korean pills and pellets as a population, and not from the minority of Ketamine Users.

PillVille City

A New York-like skyline with tall skyscrapers made of orange prescription vials, pillboxes, medication packages, and blisters. Here, our characters commute to their jobs in vehicles shaped like capsules, pills, and tablets.

Pharma Ville
Building

It looks The Gherkin in London, or the Torre Agbar in Barcelona, but shaped like a huge medicine capsule. Elegant, and sophisticated letters let us read: Pharma Ville building.

The heart-shaped pill box bar

Inside, it looks like a Bar. Outside, it looks like a Vintage Pill Box, with doors and windows. It’s Bill’s favorite after office. Decent variety of beer. Ample wine and spirits selection. Second dirtiest toilet in the whole city.

The Orange Tower

Looks like one of those “weekdays” pill boxes, but huge, placed vertically and in Orange color.

This is Orange Pill Bad’s, PillVille Mayor, building tower. Is a monument to mediocre design and cheap populism. Of course, it’s a must if you’re visiting the city as a tourist.

PillVille S01E01

Sick City-Pilot

(Full script available)

After college, Bill, our hero/placebo, with no medical usage or a well-defined posology, doesn’t know what to do with his young life. His father, a well-seasoned but not that close to expiration date capsule, decides to send him with a far auntie to the big city. She conveniently is the CEO of a huge pharmaceutical company.

There, Bill will be blasted with the collateral effects of change: New friends (All of them are drugs!), a new and exciting career in the Big Pharma Industry, and the presence of well-formulated girls. Especially, his new impossible crush, and coworker: Jenny Slim.

Suddenly, he’s living the hallucinogenic nature of the city: Parties and events are happening everywhere and they’re packed with millions of pills, capsules, tablets, and pellets eager to have fun. Bill ends up in a sick party. Jenny is there too but with her douchebag boyfriend X-Tasy, who happens to be rich and famous.

Heartbroken, and heart burned, he ends up sharing his bed with a complete pharmacopeia of other medications.

On his cell phone, waiting for the hangover to cease, is a missing text from Jenny.

Ambition Overdose

A little tipsy and Insecure about why she’s doing it, that night Jenny texts Bill despite being with her douchebag boyfriend, X-Tasy.


Is not a secret, Jenny has the ambition to become the next big hit in the competitive OTC Diet Supplements market, and Bill’s consanguineal relationship with Lisa Von Valum, Big Pharma’s CEO, can be useful in that matter. But there’s something about that young pill that seems to be what the doctor prescribed her.


Next Monday, at the office, Jenny puts in operation a plan to incorporate Bill to the formulation of her plan. Broken in two, crushed or dusted, Jenny plans to use Bill’s heart to accomplish her commercial goals.
