U.S. cable net Fusion has greenlit a comedic documentary starring stand-up comic and podcaster Chris Cubas.

Produced by Avalon and directed by Dan Taberski, Chris Gets Money follows the Austin, Texas-based comedian as he looks into the issue of income inequality by attempting to become part of the 1% for one month. He has $30,000 and 30 days “to infiltrate the elusive super-wealthy and explore why the poor stay poor and the rich keep getting richer.”

“The point I wanted to make with this film is that income inequality isn’t an abstract idea – it is a real, tangible problem with real world implications for regular Americans,” Cubas said. “I think it’s important for people to realize that it’s not just homeless people or jobless people that this is a problem for.”

Chris Gets Money will premiere on Oct. 21 at 8 p.m.
