In the lonely American Southwest, life is slow for the desert inhabitants of Coyote County. Although it reflects the diversity and pride of the Coyote County residents, local talk radio station K-RAP struggles financially, withering like a tumbleweed on its way to oblivion. Meanwhile, a rising radio personality from Los Angeles reluctantly drives through the hot desert toward Coyote County. His name is Jack Proctor. Upon visiting K-RAP, Jack meets the motley crew that works to keep the place running. These odd but charming individuals are a snapshot representation of the population living in this desert region. Jack meets Mr. Sanchez, the "maintenance engineer" and host of a "fix it" show; Raymond, the former-military accountant and host of an alien and paranormal phenomena talk show; Doyle, the sound engineer and host of a technology "geek" show; Mrs. Hopps, host of a cooking show and owner of a local café where everyone loves to eat and hang out; and Lauren, the assistant station ...Written by
Don't start watching Coyote County Loser expecting realism. For starters, the entire county seems to consist of about 30 people, a listener base that seems somehow able to support a full-time roster of talk radio personalities in the middle of the desert.
Some of these personalities, like the host of the Conspiracy Hour, are quite funny.
But the story really revolves around two of the talk radio DJs - cynical and logical Lauren Hartford (played with spunk by Nikki Boyer) and the charming, impulsive Jack Proctor (played by Beau Clark).
Jack has gotten stuck in town for a bit on his way to a big-city DJ job in Los Angeles and ends up competing with local personality Lauren to see whose version of love makes the most sense.
Should the town's ladies continue to listen to Lauren and compare their menfolk against Non-Negotiable Check Lists (NNCLs)? Or should the men use romance and charm (not to mention the occasional shower and breath mint) to sweep the objects of their affection off their feet.
The big studios have mostly given up on little stories with a slice of American flavor that show people concerned with the most momentous issues of all - who to choose as a life partner, who deserves to be given the key to your heart.
In short, for those who like some laughs, some romance and a nice dose of witty reparte, Coyote County Loser turns out to be a real winner.
