CBS All Access’ new show No Activity is the anti-action show. It’s set over the course of a major drug cartel bust, but rather than use that as an opportunity for lengthy action sequences and gritty drama, it focuses the unremarkable, mundane moments where nothing of interest happens—hence the name No Activity. Produced by Will Ferrell and Adam McKay, it’s an adaptation of an existing Australian series of the the same name. In the video above, creator and star Patrick Brammall discusses the show and talks making the leap to the states.
