Chet: Behind the Mask

Shoot the Messenger presents ‘Chet: Behind the Mask’ by Patrick O’Brien.

‘Chet: Behind the Mask’ is a Zoom miniseries following the adventures of Chet – a mean and pessimistic Hollywood agent – as they attempt to get their TV pilot, that is *definitely* is not about them, produced. Chet speaks to their clients, James and Julia, as well as late night sensation Bruno Moon and Mxs G. Reed – the unofficial God of Hollywood. Each episode seeks to critique the misogyny and money-first, art-later approach of the modern entertainment industry, providing a taste of the full stage-play, hopefully to be shown later in the year!
