Mid-season Pitch: “Pinto & Pinto”

(the unlikely friendship between two very different beans)


  • These beans are cops!

  • One of the beans lost his family in a burrito.

  • One doesn’t speak — he’s the straight bean.

  • The other pinto bean is a laugh riot!

  • Make them wear adorable little police hats.

  • High ratio of beans/episode.
