The plot line centers on a big local and fabricated controversy. An out of town mob developer, his private secretary and a hired killer arrive in Cedar Falls to present their plan to construct a large 12 story hotel and casino. The massive complex will be constructed on the river across the street from the theatre. Plans might include a casino boat to take gamblers up and down the river. Naturally the locals are split on the plan: It will bring in business and some people love the tax revenues and fees it will derive, but environmentalists are violently against it. Battle lines have been drawn putting a local architect in the cross hairs. The Mayor is up for re-election but his Chief of Staff thinks he can sway the Mayor into making a fatal decision thus allowing an opening at city Hall for himself! The Mayor’s son, (a Romeo type) and the Developer’s daughter (a Juliet type) fall in love, of course. One thing is certain: someone will be murdered and one person will be the murderer. This a fun and engaging evening for the audience and for tv viewers.
“It’s Murder Out There! ™” is a partially scripted reality TV show that follows the antics of the author, writer, producer, production staff, and an acting troupe as they present high class original murder mystery comedy performances around the country. The backstage antics, romances, fights, and creative processes are captured as the “Murder Mystery Bus” travels from city to city with the Troupe, the host/author and staff. There are one or two area celebrities on the day of the show that will “star.” This is being recorded and the first pilot will be shot October 15 and 16 in Cedar Falls at the Oster Regent Theatre. Eight actors will be brought in from around the Midwest and local auditions will take place to cast actors for the TV show that rehearses and performs in front of a live audience the same day.
