The digital series from Complex Networks’ Seriously.TV was inspired by Conroy’s and co-creator Peter Hamby’s experiences as journalists for CBS News and CNN on the road with Mitt Romney and Sarah Palin’s presidential campaigns. The six-episode, half-hour scripted comedy focuses on five recent college graduates working as embedded reporters (“embeds”) for various national news organizations on the presidential campaign trail.
