We’re all together in Huntington, making a television show, which is pretty great. One caveat: One of us is dissolving at the molecular level, which has thrown a REAL MONKEY WRENCH into production. A real “Snafu,” as we like to say in the showbiz industry.

With a fairly rowdy loop behind them, our heroes come face-to-face with divinity, and try their darndest not to make complete asses of themselves.
