A humorous lampoon of a town gone wrong profiles Wigfield, in danger when the government tears down the dam and reopens the salmon run but causes a massive flood in the process, until smug, self-important journalist Russell Hokes appears, hoping to save the day.

Wigfield is a small bucolic hideaway, situated in front of a massive dam which is about to be torn down by the state government to restore the salmon run. Wigfield's only hope lies in the self-righteous, self-involved "journalist" Russell Hokes, who arrives hoping to capture the quiet dignity of the disappearing American Small Town. However, Wigfield is nether quiet nor dignified. As the date of destruction draws nearer, Hokes casts about desperate to find something about Wigfield worth documenting. WIGFIELD is a razor-sharp satire by three major talents.
Amy Sedaris, Paul Dinello, Stephen Colbert join forces to write and read this satire on the American Small Town.
