"What happens when the televised world of pimps, music video hoes and Oprah offers you a chance at salvation," reads production notes. "An inconspicuous middle class family’s TV explodes and they suddenly find themselves in a pixilated nirvana where all their dreams can come true for the small price of their souls."
