From the writer of The Message, Life/After, and Steal the Stars. They call the crashed spaceship “The Ghosthouse” because it screams—the screams of thousands of extraterrestrial political prisoners trapped in its horrific mainframe. The only way to free them... is to transfer them into humans willing to share their minds with a second consciousness forever. Who would volunteer for that?

Trailer: I Am the Designated Mourner
02:00

Something’s happening in the country where Jack lives. There’s violence in the streets. Leaders are being replaced. Public life is transforming. The government is cracking down on anyone suspected of subversion. But Jack—consumed with his atrophying marriage to Judy, his corrosive envy of his famous poet–intellectual father-in-law Howard, and his disintegrating sense of self—barely notices. As the once-liberal society around him descends into authoritarianism, Jack plunges into his own parallel decline, a chilling abdication of everything he once valued.

Featuring Wallace Shawn, Deborah Eisenberg, and Larry Pine. Written by Wallace Shawn, directed by André Gregory, sound design and music composed by Bruce Odland, and produced by Sean Williams.

All episodes available June 25th, 2021.
