Shasta McNasty

Shasta McNasty Information

Shasta McNasty (later retitled Shasta) is an American sitcom that aired on UPN during the 1999-2000 season. The show was created by Jeff Eastin and produced by Eastin and Neal H. 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.


Shasta McNasty featured three men "? Scott, Dennis and Randy "? 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.

A sneak preview of the series after UPN's highly rated WWF SmackDown! drew 4.52 million viewers. However, when the series was moved to its scheduled 8 p.m. timeslot, ratings dropped. Halfway through the first season, UPN shortened the show's title to Shasta, and the series was canceled after its first season.
