A ruthless socialite forms an environmental activist group of oddballs to get back at her conservative mayor ex-husband.

Synopsis

To make election season a little more difficult for her conservative ex-husband, socialite Lucy Huff assembles a team of green-minded individuals. There’s just one problem. All she can find are: a neurotic stay-at-home dad, an over the top substitute drama teacher, an overqualified co-op student who doesn’t want to be there, a burned-out environmentalist recovering from a nervous breakdown, and a misguided hyperactive high-schooler. Each week the ragtag team tackles one local environmental issue. Rivers. Let’s clean ‘em. Bees. We need more of those. The Enbridge Pipeline. Let’s stop whatever that is! As flawed as their tactics may be, they will do whatever it takes to protect the earth from forces of destruction. But who will protect the earth from them?

Character Breakdowns

GRACE

GRACE

A substitute drama teacher having trouble finding work due to arts cuts. So devoted to performance art activism, Grace will demonstrate wherever there's an unsuspecting audience. She's pure sweetness but has been known to get vicious for her cause.

ERICA

ERICA

A high school student full of over-the-top idealism. Beyond Type-A and knee always bouncing, Erica goes to extreme measures to educate her peers about the environmental crisis. She is a notorious dabbler, over-organized and over-caffeinated.

BRADLEY

BRADLEY

A stay-at-home dad, Bradley recently became environmentally aware after realizing his baby will inherit the earth. He’s oblivious to the cause's intricacies, but wants to do his part. He’s also pretty stoked to get out of the house.

SIZEMORE

SIZEMORE

A former hippie activist who suffered a nervous breakdown. Sizemore is laid back, and cares less about composting and more about Monsanto. He rides his bike but drinks Starbucks. His therapist told him to seek out low-key environmental groups.

CURTIS

CURTIS

A First Nations co-op student, Curtis wants a placement in a “real” environmental organization. Or anything better than this group. He has a dry sense of humour and amuses himself by messing with the others. He is the “sharpest tool in this shed”.

LUCY

LUCY

A ruthless socialite who assembles a rag-tag environmental group. She’s heard rumours that going "green" might help a mayoral campaign against her conservative ex-husband. But she’s no protester; she’s in this for the photo op.
