After accidentally securing his first term, a corny, out of touch, environmentalist finds himself on a downward spiral towards corruption in a desperate attempt to secure his reelection.
Based off an original pilot created by David Legel, Jonathan Rush, and Tony Holt- Capitol Joe acts as a prelude following the events leading up to "The Quick Minute."
During the height of the Covid-19 pandemic, David Legel & Andy Aguila, co-founders of Egalitarian Arts Foundation were inspired to create a series that explored politics from a unprecedented angle. With the film and tv industry at a standstill, and the prospects of "The Quick Minute" losing its greenlight for the Summer of 2020, a plan was devised to maintain EGA's creative momentum.
In May, David Legel & Andy Aguila began creating the blueprints for Capitol Joe and by early June, Jonathan Rush was attached to translate the pilot's outline into a script.
Capitol Joe stars Andrew John Morrison (Roses for Ms. Jacobs) as Joe Smith, Angela de Silva (10 Things I Hate About You) as Teresa Thomas- Joe's fierce congressional competitor, & David Legel as Trevor Quickston- Joe's ethically ambiguous campaign manager.
