James and I are in the deep and dirty editing stages of our new City-State short, “Television’s Prescription for Ratings”, and we wanted to share a little of our notes and a little piece of this new… reality:
Tyler Wright, a young emergency ward doctor, has just been appointed to City-State’s Health and Ethical Entertainment committee – “the death committee” as it is known among the nation’s medical and political residents. Dr. Bevin, an esteemed member of this committee, explains the nature of City-State’s violent and deadly reality television shows:
“…we have to give the audiences what they want – and need. Entertainment is the key in City-State. People live well here. With that said, they need constant entertainment – truly compelling media – in order to keep their minds occupied. A bored populace is dangerous for everyone.”
And the show must go on… stay tuned. Beta readers are wanted soon.
