The show is a microcosm of the challenges we face as a country today. It is about the local people’s lives that are affected by the life-changing policies. With edginess and humor, it addresses the personal and political decisions that change the direction of their lives, at least temporarily.
Think of the edgy humor and visual tone of Fargo where the town itself is a character. It also has the political intrigue found in VEEP and the small town convivial atmosphere we loved in the movie Bernie. California Boys will make us fall in love with this towns’ eclectic and multi-cultural facets.
Heartfelt and cinematic, the emphasis and drive of this show are its people — the characters therein are fully fleshed out — each one with a rich background. The comedy is a natural extension of character — not a sketch.
