Cosmo the miniseries


So this is how it started. In the beginning of Summer 2006, Jon Howe got a call from a friend inviting him to help create some promotional videos for Cosmo the Cougar.

Then it began. Meetings and brainstorming with the elite Team Cosmo yeilded the concept: A six-part miniseries where every episode would premiere at a BYU home football game. It would be fast paced and action filled. Celebrities would make appearances and Swoop would be put in his place.

Those who watched BYU football trounce Tulsa saw the first episode, entitled "Cosmo Begins", premiere on the Lavell Edwards Stadium big screen. This espisode featured a spoof of Batman begins, enlisting the help of our celebrity friends Bruce Newbold (Finding Faith in Christ, Testaments), Lavell Edwards, Robbie Bosco and Marin Poole.

The first episode is now online at - a site dedicated to the documentation and progress of the Cosmo Films Project. Come watch the films as they debut and support Cosmo in his quest to become the nation's best mascot in the Capitol One: Mascot Challenge 2007!


Are you telling me that they got Bruce Newbold and Marin Poole!?! Amazing! And Lavell Edwards took time off from making intellibed commercials? I can't wait to see who they have next! Maybe Thurl Bailey!
