Our Regularly Scheduled Program

Our Regularly Schedule Program is the brainchild of Brass Tacks Members James Ingagiola and Isaac Ellis in response to the COVID-19 pandemic closing theaters.

Set in a dystopian reality where Art (and the practice of it) is outlawed, the citizens themselves provide  entertainment. As part of their civic duty, ordinary people are forced to showcase their (non-artistic) “talents” for the diversion of the rest of the populace–with dire consequences if they do not comply. But while the government enforces these measures with an iron fist, there are those who are not content to remain in the shadows. Humor, mystery, personal revelation, and politics collide as each 5-10 minute episode gives us a look into the private-made-public lives of these ordinary folks and those who might attempt to disrupt the status quo.

Developed and Directed by James Ingagiola and Isaac Ellis.

Season 2 Written by Mary Conley, Isaac Ellis, James Ingagiola, and Russ Schwartz.
