A hilarious satire of a town in jeopardy and the earnest "reporter" who hopes to save it—and his own just-hatched career as a writer. Brilliantly told by three of today's hottest young comedy stars.

Russell Hokes was recently fired from his job painting center lines on interstates and is now free to pursue his dream of becoming a writer. Instead of drawing long white lines on asphalt, he'll draw much shorter ones on paper, with loops and curls. Having told his clueless publisher he wants to write about the quiet dignity of the American Small Town, Hokes hits the road for Wigfield.

Wigfield is a town in danger. A bucolic hideaway built directly in front of a massive dam, it will soon be flooded when the dam is demolished by the state government to restore the salmon run. The only hope for the neither quiet nor dignified town is a self-righteous, self-aggrandizing, self-involved so-called "journalist": Hokes.

As the story unfolds, told through a series of interviews with the town's colorful residents, including an elderly couple in their late thirties and the manager of Wigfield's premier strip club, Hokes seeks desperately to find anything about Wigfield worth documenting—or saving. Wigfield is a razor-sharp satire by three major talents.
