Episodes coming soon! In the meantime, here is a sampling of storylines from the 20 five-minute scripts we’ve created:
MR. CHEN VS. THE FREE PRESS
Chinafornia’s new leader Mr. Chen, realizing he is no match for the free press, takes control over the media, with a strategy to “sedate the people with sports, gossip & internet cat videos.” When reporter Jasper Davenport goes rogue, Mr. Chen arrests him live on the air, inciting statewide riots that threaten to topple the newborn republic.
WELCOME TO TOILET TOWN
Mr. Chen has a plan to revive the Chinafornian economy. He re-names Bakersfield “Toilet Town,” and intends to make it the world’s center for toilet & toilet brush manufacturing.
WEST SIDE CHINESE STORY
In this musical episode, Mr. Chen, despite his “brain saying go away from the lady!”, falls in love with his daughter’s American History teacher, Whitney Van Ness. The trouble: neither the Communist Party nor the Teacher’s Union would ever approve. Forced to keep their passions a secret, Chen & Van Ness profess their love for each other through songs including “Beautiful Caucasian Lady” & “Powerful Government Official (with a Soft Side).” When the head of the teacher’s union declares war on Mr. Chen & his union-busting ways, they must choose between each other or their party lines.
U.S. citizens from Nevada, Arizona & Oregon have been sneaking across the Chinafornian border and stealing jobs in Toilet Town. Facing public outcry, Mr. Chen comes up with a plan to kill two birds with one stone: He will build the Great Wall of Chinafornia, blocking the flow of “illegals,” while providing a million new jobs.
