About this show

Inspired by the ancient Greek anti-war comedy Lysistrata, Kathryn Blume tries to fight global warming and save the world by making a movie about the First Lady of the United States launching a national sex strike to fight global warming and save the world. As The Boycott progresses, the story of Kathryn, trying to stave off her planet-going-to-hell despair, interweaves with the story of First Lady Lyssa Stratton, who has to take on her indifferent husband, a hostile press, and a romantic rival who's not only in bed with the President, but with the darkest powers of the oil industry. Aided by her impassioned daughter, a high tech Secret Service agent, and a plucky Brazilian tree frog she meets on the Astral Plane, Lyssa bumps and lurches her way into an unexpected, wildly comic, and ultimately successful campaign. Kathryn, too, with the help of friends, the extended DVD of The Lord of the Rings, and significant quantities of dark chocolate (organic and fair trade, of course), manages to complete her tale and find a serious dollop of hope for herself, for her audience, and for the future of the world.
