The only thing worse than being a politician is working for one. THE HILL is a political satire that isn’t about Politicians but the staffers that do the work, take the crap and actually run the country. THE HILL digs into the high-strung lives of the women and men who staff the Prime Minister’s Office. It’s backstabbing, back scratching, and a little bit of backdoor dealings, corrupt senators, kinky cabinet ministers and a full frontal caucus. THE HILL is Canada’s political bathing-suit-parts laid bare cause when you are working on THE HILL you realize the nation is run by boobs, asses, and dicks. Politics are dirtier than porn, more addictive than heroin and you’re all invited to the orgy.

    We live in a time where politics matter more than ever. I believe this show will have the potential to create a strong satirical comment about who we let run our country. Not to mention, the people involved in this project are fantastic!

    I love political satire, but you have to up the quality here, from a technical standpoint (missing that slick pro quality). What's different about you guys?

    You will have to really step up the content to keep me watching week after week. Your team has a lot of experience so I am expecting a lot. Good Luck.

    You have some very experienced people and so the expectations are VERY high. Although there is some funny content, I do not see this going week to week. It is nothing new and I think new is what is needed to win.

    It has the possibility to be funny: however, it is not really new and there are already some great political comedies about political life. A tough road week after week.
    Good luck
