Local studio releases tnew TV series
By Winter Dorval - Staff Reporter
Lionhound Productions is releasing their new show The Write-In, So You Want to Go to Washington.
"The American people are fed up with the two-party system. The only way to do it is to let the American people decide with citizen candidates," said Michael Wilson, president and CEO of Seattle-based Lionhound Productions.
Wilson is also a film and television producer and director with Lionhound.
There would be no corruption because "with write-in candidates every ballot would be hand counted," he said.
The show will be streaming on platforms such as Amazon, Netflix, and Hulu.
"It's my belief that millennials are going to be the ones to turn this mess around," said Wilson.
The show caters to millennial audiences, he said.
"It is a peaceful revolution with humor to set this country back where it needs to be," said Wilson.
Although he is more into film than TV, he put film on the back burner to work on this series, he said.
The second season will be called So You Want to Go to Have a Party, and the third will be So You Want to Be President.
"It will have SNL- and The Tonight Show-type humor with the look of American Idol," said Wilson.
"Both the left wing and right are in agreement with what we're doing.
People tend to rally towards truth when they hear it."
The show is expected to air in mid-summer.
It will be a yearly show.
"With casting we were looking for people from all walks of life, former news people, actors, doctors, teachers, and more," he said.
