Fantasy Automated Investors League (F.A.I.L), a netprov

» Posted by on Nov 26, 2012 in Synopsis | 1 comment

Live, now! til Dec 2nd.

Here’s the basic idea:

Dan, Lisa and Consuela are busy, single salesfolk who keep their college friendship alive by Tweeting about their Fantasy League.

Except that rather than playing Fantasy Sports, they are die-hard members of the Fantasy Automated Investors League (F.A.I.L.) in which they wheel, deal, joke and trashtalk about Fantasy Businesses the way others do about Fantasy Football teams.

As they banter in Twitter, we learn that (in real life) Consuela is being promoted to stardom, Lisa dreams of marriage and kids (perhaps with Dan), and Dan’s career is in the toilet.

This week, however, two crises are going to shake the tight trio.

Synopsis (Spoiler Alert! Read No Further if You Are Following The Story Live)

First, controlling Consuela attempts a sudden merger of her powerful fantasy company with depressed Dan’s failing one — a merger with decidedly romantic overtones — sending lively Lisa into a jealous tailspin. Consuela’s move violates not only the unspoken rules of the game but also the delicate balance of their relationships.

Second, they discover that these are not merely fantasy businesses.  Disgruntled employees begin to surface in Twitter, furious at Dan about the merger and its resultant layoffs and plant closings. It turns out the three have unwittingly become ensnared in a Wall Street scheme that creates real corporations and hires real employees managed remotely with digital aloofness by unsuspecting armchair CEOs. The two plots weave toward a wild double dénouement. What matters more, the friendships or the workers? Does love triumph? Who gets final bragging rights? Stay glued to your twitter feeds and find out!
