Potential New SF on CBC Radio

Matt Watts, Greg DeClute and Joe Mahoney have completed production of a half hour pilot for a proposed new science fiction radio play series on CBC Radio called “Nightsoil: Into the Beyond of the Future of Tomorrow.”

If accepted by CBC Radio’s programming department, Nightsoil would continue the new wave of science fiction comedy begun in 2005 on CBC Radio by Matt and Joe with Steve the First, Steve the Second, and later Canadia:2056 (with Greg DeClute).

In the future, 98% of the world’s population live in a computer simulation called Next Life.  The other 2%, stuck in the real world, spend their miserable lives looking after the inhabitants of Next Life.  Nightsoil is the story of one man’s dream of entering the wondrous world of Next Life, reuniting with his childhood sweetheart, and living happily ever after.

If only Next Life were that easy…

Consistently funny, sometimes serious, yet always entertaining, Nightsoil: Into the Beyond of the Future of Tomorrow has everything: relevancy, mass appeal, and perhaps most importantly, a really long title.
