Trivia

In 2013 Kevin T. Morales was inspired to write a series about a future in which the two sides of America get a "divorce" after observing the viral protest that occurred the night Texas State Senator Wendy Davis held an 11 hour filibuster to block Senate Bill 5, a measure which included more restrictive abortion regulations in Texas. His "what if" scenario satirizes present day political divisions around the world and 21st century dystopian dramas common in the entertainment industry and fiction of the time. See more »

Timely, Dark, and Clever Fun
5 March 2017 | by mike-12619See all my reviews

I was fortunate to be asked to watch the proof-of-concept for the pilot and I found it intriguing. Having been born and raised in Texas (and later "escaped"), some of this hit far too close to home in a fun and clever way. Clearly, Mr. Morales has thought deeply about crafting a story that will entertain and enlighten and will ultimately take us on a fun and thoughtful journey. Given the current political climate in the U.S. and the uncertainty of the coming years, this series is timely and will surely be provocative. I am looking forward to enjoying the entire series!
