Digital media company Fine Brothers Entertainment (FBE) is developing an unscripted pilot centered on political activism.

Co-Conspirator is currently in development from FBE and follows political activist Amanda Werner (pictured) as they rally co-conspirators to take part in absurd public stunts to disrupt the political establishment in America.

Werner is best known for their “Monopoly Man” persona, riffing on the extreme wealth of those in power through comedic performances, most notably at the 2017 Senate hearing on the Equifax data breach. They also dressed as a “Russian Troll” doll during Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg’s Senate hearing concerning the social media site earlier this year.

The company is also teaming with Fly on the Wall Entertainment (CBS’ Big Brother) on Our Family Rules, which follows the Wallaces, an Arizona family with 20 children under one roof – two being the biological children of parents Jared and Shelly, and 18 being adopted from groups of siblings reunited after being split up in foster care.

FBE announced other partnerships with JASH and Eko on scripted programming, marking the company’s continued expansion into television.

“We’re proud to partner with Fly on the Wall, JASH and Eko on these new series and announce development on Co-Conspirator with Amanda Werner, who continues to drive headlines and conversation around important issues,” said Brandie Tucker, FBE head of alternative television, in a statement. “This new slate reinforces our commitment to creating programming that brings communities together, further realizing our vision of what the future of entertainment looks like across platforms.”
