With their careers on the brink of complete collapse, three disgraced journalists are rounded up by Colt Buchanan, a billionaire Texan to launch his latest risky venture... an American news network in the Middle East! But their Western way of life is turned on its head as our reporters fumble their way through severe and absurd customs and laws as they attempt to tackle serious journalism. All of these elements combine to create a tasty combination of fear, cultural misunderstanding, terrorism, dictatorship, and of course unexpected comedy! Written by Landed Entertainments
