COLLECTING UNEMPLOYMENT... AND DUST.
Kurt Lane is collecting unemployment... and dust. Upon receiving word that his big-city social media employer will no longer be utilizing him as a work-from-home "flag" moderator, Kurt returns to his Pennsylvania small pond to file for their better unemployment benefits.
Through embarrassing run-ins with old high school faces, his parents, a five-year-old, and a particularly regretful unemployment agent, Kurt finagles himself unique leverage to receive support for up to two years while "searching" for work... or as he understands it - be rewarded with two years of relaxation as a thank you for a previous job well-done.
"Collecting" mixes a modern comedic tone with topical frustrations of America, resulting in charismatic characters that can be scolded, yet understood.
