Trivia & Production Notes
- Taccone, Samberg and Schaffer have been friends since junior high school in Berkeley, California. In 2000, the trio began writing, directing and producing its own brand of comedy and showcasing it on www.thelonelyisland.com. The three writing partners are responsible for creating the popular SNL "Digital Shorts," which reinvigorated the series and spurred many water-cooler moments over the past decade.
- "Not to be hyperbolic, but we are seriously zazzed about this movie," said The Lonely Island (5/14/15).
- Joining the behind-the-scenes crew of The Lonely Island are director of photography Brandon Trost (This Is the End, Neighbors); editors Jamie Gross (Role Models, upcoming Vacation), Stacey Schroeder (Grudge Match, TV's Key and Peele) and Zene Baker (This Is the End, Neighbors); production designer Jon Billington (World War Z, The Interview) and costume designer Sophie De Rakoff (Legally Blonde, Sweet Home Alabama).
