Occasionally, I get a notice for something that looks so promising that I basically give it a free ad, running the whole friggin’ press release and not even bothering to embellish it with the usual derogatory comments. This time, it’s for Wasp Cove, a sort-of-monthly prime-time soap spoof at Comix, where the club’s purposeful misspelling is just the beginning of the laffs. The show—a journey back to ’80s TV melodramatics—is apparently more about AARON Spelling, trotting out all kinds of nostril flaring and shoulder padding in a high-concept tale of loudly buzzing Wasps. But next time I’ll be giving them a page rate.
