Written by Kevin Lee, the show was directed by Mike Roers and stars Jim Thoreen, Courtney Bitzan, Gary Lund, Tom Chorley, Kip Sundlee and Jim Odden. Music is by Karen Gladen, with Daniel Roers on sound effects. Some sound effects were designed in post-production.

The show will air on Saturday, May 24 at 12:30 p.m. on KXRA 1490 AM.
