“TWENTY MINUTES INTO THE FUTURE… THIRTY YEARS INTO THE PAST"
THIS IS A FREE EVENT BEING HELD ALL WEEK LONG STARTING MAY 13TH
The Jean Cocteau will be hosting special guests
Matt Frewer (Max Headroom himself), Steve Roberts, and Michael Cassutt Will be here to host on the 18th and 19th and Max himself with a full cast will be reading the unaired episode written by GRRM on May 20th for the final day of our week long Max Headroom extravaganza.
Television networks battle one another in an unrelenting ratings war. Whoever controls the airwaves controls the dystopic world in which they broadcast. So when Network 23s star reporter, Edison Carter, uncovers a deadly secret that could shake up the dominion the station has over its viewers, the only option is to eliminate Carter before he can make his story public. After his “accident,” his mind is uploaded to create the world’s first self-aware, computer-generated TV host: Max Headroom! But will Max bow to his creators? Or will he be the key to his human alter ego bringing down a network superpower?
Able to boast his own international talk show, music videos, countless endorsements and merchandising, the puckish Max Headroom became more than just a character on television. He was a decade-defining icon, never better represented than in this sardonically witty, adventurous look at society and the place of media within it. Starring Matt Frewer (Watchmen), Amanda Pays (The Flash), Jeffrey Tambor (Arrested Development) and Morgan Sheppard (Star Trek).This message has be brought to you by the Minions of Fevre River
