In a retrofuturistic world, where the only jobs are consuming and creating content, a failing artist falls for the woman from the TV after receiving secret messages.

How We Made Midnight Television

The world of Midnight Television combines nostalgia of 1980s, the days of emerging tech and internet of the 1990s and hollowing loneliness of the internet culture of today. Our hero, Asher, sits at the epicenter of all three batteling for future that was seemingly promised, but never came to be.
