Scoopy Doo Dog Waste Removal Service, the premier waste removal service in the Tri-State area, is proud to announce that it recently presented the first script reading of the screenplay TURDHERDER! THE MOVIE. TURDHERDER! is a wild, raucous, hilariously inappropriate comedy about the messy but marvelous world of dog do. It’s based on the true-life comic exploits of Scoopy Doo Dog Waste Removal Service’s owner and founder, the King of Poop himself, Jim Coniglione. Things are definitely moving forward with this down-to-earth poop-scooping extravaganza!
Actors reading the screenplay “Turdherder! The Movie!”
TURDHERDER! THE MOVIE had its first official table read at the Shetler Studios in NYC on July 27, 2016. The script reading starred a knockout cast of some of New York’s best young actors, and the performance had the small invited audience in stitches as the wild wacky saga of life in the poop-scooping world sprang to life.

Leading the cast was Joe Cummings as Jake Walsh, the reluctant turdherder, and Joshua Zisholtz as Phil “Scoop” Scopetti, the proud owner of the premier pet waste removal service on Long Island. Also featured were Joanna Keylock as Vanessa, Jennifer Jiles as Karen, Jacob Berger as Mikey Coach and Peter Plano in a number of hilarious roles. Rounding out the cast was Liz Peace, Mark Lobene, Stephanie Iscovitiz, and Kerri Kenny Clegg. Stage directions were read by Ali Mierzijewski.

Scoopy Doo Dog Waste Removal Service is enormously proud of this first film venture, and already has more story ideas in the pipeline. There’s no end of poop stories available – they just keep coming! In the meantime, following up on the success of this initial read, a second reading for backers and industry folk is planned for the fall. Stay tuned!
