Capitol Hill

Capitol Hill

2 Seasons

Presented by BenDeLaCreme, Wes Hurley's Capitol Hill is a queer parody of (and an homage to) 1970s soap operas and crime shows with a pinch of supernatural horror. Gender-bending icon Waxie Moon stars as the young and naive Roses Smell who escapes to Seattle from the backwoods hellhole of Portland. The big city holds promises of new friendship, love and even stardom, but none of it may be enough to stave off the demons from Roses' haunting Oregon past. Fiercely original and featuring lavish production design, "Capitol Hill" won Best Costume Design and Best Makeup at Indie Series Awards.
