FROM THE ARTIST:
Full synopsis: The red emergency phone is ringing. On one end? Lowly assistants at Babylon Pictures, a major Hollywood movie studio, left alone to handle some fresh and rapidly escalating damage control. On the other? North Korea's supreme leader, furious with his depiction in Babylon's latest film, "The Girlish Tendencies of Kim Jong-un." Besieged from all sides, they must contend with a spiraling predicament catapulting them further into a frenzied distortion of modern American culture and the creative process. Throwing shade may be their only way out.
Featuring: Will Cary, Julianne Cross, Kelsey Lea Jones Elizabeth Zephyrine McDonough, Jacob Presson, Zach Stephens, and Dick Ward.
Creative Team: Emily Abma, Gus Belfiglio, Amelia Cain, and Kirsten Williams.
