The Orbiting Human Circus (of the Air)

Atop the Eiffel Tower, a lonely janitor stumbles into a series of alternately surreal and comic adventures as he becomes part of a mystery: what is the secret behind the wildly popular, bizarrely impossible live radio variety show being broadcast from the tower’s top? John Cameron Mitchell, Tim Robbins, Mandy Patinkin, Charlie Day and Mary Elizabeth Ellis, Drew Callander, Welcome to Night Vale’s Cecil Baldwin and Meg Bashwiner, Susannah Flood, and many more star in this immersive, cinematic universe from the imagination of Julian Koster (Neutral Milk Hotel). Season One premieres on October 12. New episodes every other Wednesday through February 1, 2017. Co-directed by Ellie Heyman. Part of the Night Vale Presents network.
