10terrorists!

 

A politically incorrect - or is it ‘correct’? - cutting-edge comedy that examines our fascination with reality television and marries it with our hyper-vigilant terrorist culture.  

In this Shock & Awe(some) comedy, a Los Angeles producer steals from popular Reality TV formats to seek out the ultimate “amateur master-terrorist”. The prize is $1 Million to put towards their own terrorism cause. 10terrorists! is a parody of the world we ‘occupy’ and speaks directly into the absurdity of our media-saturated 21st society.
