Channel Surfing Productions follows up their 2005 Best Comedy, “The UnderAchievers”, with “This Just In”! It’s a newsroom comedy/drama set in the dying town of Petroleum Falls. When CBS affiliate WPET is suddenly shut down, they go from reporting the news to becoming it, when the employees unknowingly broadcast a fake story about a disease that ends up getting their town quarantined. The staff of WPET have many decisions to make as they put their integrity, reputations, personal ethics, morales and of course their future careers on the line.
