Mandate Nabs Alcoholic Writer Dramedy ‘The Last Drop’

Murphy Brothers

Graffiti artist Brandon Murphy and his standup comedian brother Phillip are behind the project.

Mandate is hitting the sauce for The Last Drop, picking up the spec by brothers Brandon and Phillip Murphy.

Mixing comedy and drama, Drop tells the story of a charming writer who is a fully functioning alcoholic by day, turned horribly dysfunctional by cocktail hour. While on assignment for The New Yorker, he meets the girl of his dreams, but soon discovers that there's a lot more at stake than love if he doesn't clean up his act.

Brandon Murphy is a graffiti artist and previously sold Pony Bush to Dimension with Broken Lizard producing.

Phillip Murphy is a stand-up comedian and hosts the online radio show The 99 Cent Bin.  He is also a regular guest on Jackie “The Joke Man” Martling's
Sirius radio show.

The pair is repped by WME and Benderspink.
