Watch the trailer for Swing State here…
Seattle based rock DJ, Ethan Smith, hosts a popular radio program called Ears Wide Shut which appeals to his passion for music but unfortunately, pays a very low wage. When the conservative host of a right wing program also featured on the radio station goes missing, Ethan is called in to cover his absence. He invents the persona, Charles Fern, and brands himself “the new voice for the Right”. When the talk show enjoys a huge spike in ratings following Ethan’s hosting gig, he is asked to take over the high-paying host job full-time and pushed onto the national stage.
