About This Show

A new adventure for the kid in all of us. Summer 1989. Two troops. One missing Scoutmaster. And a friggin’ Mothman. Bitchin’. Scouts tells an original story of the Brother and Sister Scouts, rival troops in Point Pleasant, West Virginia, competing for Troop of the Year at the 1989 Summer Jamboree, when one of their Scoutmasters goes missing in the deep woods, where some say is home to the mysterious and deadly Mothman. Alex, a rebellious Sister Scout, vows to venture into the unknown. Travis, a loyal Brother Scout, follows his best friend in the woods along with the rest of the Brothers and Sisters…chaos ensuing. A mirror to the 1980s, Scouts is a reflection on gender and stereotypes; a modern lens on a time long past, with fresh and wacky ideas that might just work.

Age Recommendation- 12+ for strong language, scary situations, and thematic elements
