Shasta McNasty

Shasta McNasty

"Shasta McNasty" (later "Shasta") was a television program that aired on UPN during the 1999-2000 season. The show was a half-hour sitcom created by Jeff Eastin and produced by Eastin and Neal Moritz. The show starred Carmine Giovinazzo, Jake Busey, Dale Godboldo, Jolie Jenkins, and Verne Troyer.

Although Shasta McNasty premiered with less-than-favorable reviews from critics, the program was nominated for a People's Choice Award for best new comedy. Halfway through the season, UPN changed the show's title from "Shasta McNasty" to "Shasta".


Shasta McNasty featured three men — Scott, Dennis and Ran — in a rap/rock band. They spent their time creating mischief and checking out attractive women on Venice Beach — anything but writing their song lyrics. They hated their landlord and always avoided paying rent on their Venice Beach loft apartment.

The show was cancelled after the first season ended, presenting only 22 episodes between May 1999 and January 2000.
