BACK ON BADSTREET is written and directed by Keith Alcorn (JIMMY NEUTRON: BOY GENIUS) and Steve Barnes (A FAIR TO REMEMBER). The two have known each other for more than 30 years and figured it was about time to do something together, before one of them died. BACK ON BADSTREET celebrates the 30th anniversary of the song “Badstreet USA” and subsequent music video that ushered in a new musical genre known as “Rock N’ Wrestling.”
Generally known for their work in the animation industry, Alcorn and Barnes take a less than conventional approach to BACK ON BADSTREET. The goal was to make a film that would knock the documentary on its ear — professional-wrestling style. Told through interviews and extremely rare video footage, much of which hasn’t been seen in 30 years, Alcorn and Barnes’ approach is simple: if it’s fun to work on, it’ll be fun to watch… at least, that’s what they keep telling themselves.
