4 Episodes
Original Run: 3 Eps, 1/25/14 - 2/8/14
Playoffs Run: 1 ep, 5/17/14

EPISODE ONE (1/25/14)

SUMMARY:  A man who is newly arrived in hell has the situation explained to him by his roommate: there's a new boss in Hell, and he's making some changes.  People are being assigned roommates that they'll eventually come to despise.  And, worried that an eternity of constant suffering means people will adapt, the new boss has introduced brief moments of relief and happiness, to make the punishment even more unbearable.  One of these innovations is "First Day."  On your first day in Hell, you get to experience your happiest day.  In addition to all this, nobody knows why they're in Hell; the knowledge is taken from them; believing you're innocent increases the suffering.  But there's no more time to talk; Beelzebeb is here to take the man out for his First Day...

Hell's Newscaster (Erin Matthews), bringing you all the bad news. Erin Parks as "The Woman" The Woman is none-too-thrilled with her newly-arrived eternal roommate (Michael Lanahan). Beelzebub (David Mayes) arrives to take the Man for his "First Day" experience.

EPISODE TWO (2/1/14)

SUMMARY:  The Newscaster turns out to be Hell's new boss, serving her fourth term.  But Pandora, who created Hell when she opened her infamous box, thinks Hell should be hers to rule, and she and Leviathan are scheming a takeover.  Meanwhile, The Boss begins her torture of The Man, revealing that his time with The Woman WAS his First Day, and that she was his wife.  But rather than submit to her tortures, he chooses, much to her bafflement, to jump into the Lake of Fire.  Elsewhere, Pandora and Leviathan pay a call on The Woman, and Pandora steals her soul, bottling it up in her own head.

EPISODE THREE (2/8/14)

SUMMARY:  Persephone is determined to help "the innocent," much to the reluctant annoyance of her husband, Hades.  And "the innocent" is apparently Prescott - a.k.a. "The Man."  As an innocent in Hell, everyone is trying to get him to commit a mortal sin so that they can keep his soul.  Goatish demon Asmodeus tries to seduce Prescott so that he'll commit bestiality.  When that doesn't work, Asmodeus summons an Annoyance Fairy, who won't leave Prescott alone unless he kills her... or himself.  Prescott chooses to shoot himself to be rid of her, quickly recovering as he's already dead.  He goes back to visit The Woman - a.k.a. his wife, Maude - but finds her vacant, staring body... and her voice coming from the body of Pandora.

Persephone (Kimberly Atkinson) and her husband Hades (Gregory Sims). Prescott (Michael Lanahan) tries to get through to Maude (Erin Parks), but her soul's no longer in her body. Goatish Asmodeus (Peter Fluet) gets drunk with Prescott. Asmodeus attempts to seduce Prescott.

EPISODE FOUR (5/17/14) - PLAYOFFS WEEK 1!

SUMMARY:  Prescott remembers the day he met Maude - which was also the day he died, pushing her out of the way of an oncoming car at a marathon.  Hermes travels back in time to that day on a mission for Zeus, who is annoyed that Hades has let Persephone try to help Prescott.  Meanwhile, Maude, trapped in Pandora's body, struggles to get Prescott a message without alerting Pandora.

Maude (Erin Parks) and Prescott (Michael Lanahan) encounter Hermes (Matt Valle) on the day Prescott dies. Hermes reports to Zeus (Pat Towne). Hades pleads Persephone's case. Maude, trapped in Pandora's body, tries to get a message to an uncomprehending Prescott without alerting Pandora.
