Plot Synopsis

Hosted by Joseph Gordon-Levitt, HITRECORD ON TV! is a variety show that showcases live performances, short films, music, animation, and other content produced in a collaborative environment at Each 30-minute episode has its own theme, like: The Number One, which focuses on stories of first times, unity and solitude; Fantasy, which includes a fanciful kick line with guest Tony Danza, an exploration into the neuroscience of fantasy and an animated musical twist on "Beauty and the Beast"; Trash, which includes Joe singing a rock song saluting freaks and geeks, filmmaker John Waters offering his taste for trashy, and a pulpy short film about a trash collector abducted by aliens; and more. Plus, portions of this series were filmed live in front of and by a studio audience at the Masonic Lodge in Los Angeles (June 30, 2013), The Orpheum in Los Angeles (August 10, 2013), and many more locations.
