Behind the Scenes of Blark and Son

By August 14, 2020 No Comments

Blark and Son is a series about an older, bear-hunting, out-of-touch single dad (Blark), who constantly tries to bond and hang out with his internet-addicted son (literally named Son). The show began as a series of 30 second videos on Instagram, but has since become a regular series on Comedy Central in the United States.

Blark and Son is currently in its third season on Comedy Central. Unfortunately, full episodes are only available to watch online in the United States, but a limited number of clips can be found on YouTube internationally. You can also find the original series of 30 second videos on Instagram, along with many more behind-the-scenes photos and videos that document production of the series.
