CHS told you last month about a new online show from Wes Hurley and Waxie Moon created in the spirit of the fantastic and fantastically awful primetime soap operas of the 70s and 80s. The first episode of Capitol Hill is now online — we’ve shared it below. Worth a watch for its depiction of the Stars and Bars South that is Portland, OR, alone, the 7 1/2-minute episode gets the (corn)ball rolling on the adventures of Roses Smell.
The show’s first season will likely include 10 episodes but Hurley said he has plans for longer plots that extend out for at least another few seasons if enough people tune in. Organizers are looking for local businesses that would like to be part of the show and supporting future episodes. You can learn more at facebook.com/CapitolHillWebSeries.
