Timmy Failure: Mistakes Were Made follows the hilarious exploits of our quirky, deadpan hero, Timmy Failure, who, along with his 1,500-pound polar bear partner Total, operates Total Failure Inc., a Portland detective agency. An elementary school oddball, the clueless but confident Timmy must navigate the world of adults around him, including his overburdened mother, her well-meaning boyfriend, his teacher/nemesis and a school-mandated guidance counselor, all in his quest to become the best detective in the world.
Joining Winslow Fegley in his feature acting debut and first lead role are Ophelia Lovibond (Guardians of the Galaxy) as Patty Failure, Craig Robinson (Hot Tub Time Machine, Dolittle), Kyle Bornheimer (Marriage Story), Chloe Coleman (Big Little Lies) and Wallace Shawn (Toy Story, Young Sheldon).
The film is directed by Oscar winner Tom McCarthy (Up, Spotlight) from a screenplay co-written by Pastis and McCarthy. The producers are Jim Whitaker, p.g.a., and Tom McCarthy, p.g.a., with Michael Bederman and Kate Churchill serving as executive producers.
The novel was first published in 2013 by Candlewick Press. Since then, it was followed by six book installments titled Now Look What You’ve Done (2014), We Meet Again (2014), Sanitized For Your Protection (2015), The Book You’re Not Supposed to Have (2016), The Cat Stole My Pants (2017) and It’s The End When I Say It’s The End (2018).
