Conspiracy theory TV show launches today
Zero Hour, a new TV show on the ABC network in the U.S., airs its first episode tonight. It's about the editor of a magazine called Modern Skeptic who stumbles into a long running effort by the Rosicrucians to hide a Big Secret from people who shouldn't get their hands on it (such as the Nazis.) The plot about a CSICOP-type person becoming involved with a secret conspiracy sounds like a nod to Robert Anton Wilson, but I have no proof, so I won't elevate that observation into a conspiracy theory of my own. The show stars Anthony Edwards from ER, who has avoided TV series but agreed to give Zero Hour a go after reading the oddball script.
