The blurb: Broadcasting through a makeshift network of discarded televisions, Kuso is tangled up in the aftermath of Los Angeles’ worst quake nightmare. Travel between screens and between aftershocks into the twisted lives of the survived.
Make of that what you will. The trailer is a mind-melting collage of weirdness.

Ok, I’m fully down for WGN’s upcoming show Underground, an action, adventure drama about a group of slaves trying to escape. The show has a mighty impressive group of people behind it. It is executive produced by music great John Legend and has a team that’s been involved in shows like True Blood, The Wire, Treme, Daredevil and Sons of Anarchy. WGN is putting on the full court press ahead of it’s March 9th debut, starting with a huge debut at The Sundance Film Festival on Saturday, Jan 23rd (I’m almost tempted to fly out for this.)
I think one of my new bucket list items is to get it together to do Sundance one of these years. Believe it or not I’ve never been to a film festival. So I might as well start with the big kahuna. Sundance runs Jan 21 – 31st. If you hit the Powerball this week, you can do still go and do it up right. Tickets are still available for through the VIP Concierge.

Emmet Walsh (Blood Simple, Damages), Domhnall Gleeson (About Time, Dredd), and David Wilmot (Ripper Street). Follow the jump for the trailer and the press release.
