A group of Tea Partiers has created its own television show, which its backer says is a remedy to the group’s belief that Hollywood portrays "conservatives, traditionalists and people of faith as half-wits," according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The show is called "Courage, New Hampshire." Created by a company called Colony Bay, the one-hour project has the feel of a soap opera set in Colonial America, the story says.
Colony Bay is trying to strike deals with conservative networks such as Kelsey Grammer’s Right Network, but with no distribution partner on board yet, the one-hour drama is going straight to DVD, the piece notes.
The show will debut at a movie theater in Monrovia, Calif., on Sunday, with former "Saturday Night Live" cast member Victoria Jackson and radio personality Tony Katz co-hosting.
James Patrick Riley, one of the founders of Colony Bay and a Patrick Henry impersonator, said, "I was surprised to learn how many Tea Partiers there are in Hollywood," the story notes.
