FEBRUARY 1, 2018 – “Congratulations. You’ve reached The Amelia Project. This phone call isn’t happening. If you’re not serious about this, hang up. Now.”
The Amelia Project offers a very special service: Faking its clients’ deaths! Its eccentric clientele includes cult leaders, politicians and porn stars, all desperate to disappear and start over… But how long can the secrecy last?
The story follows an underground organization helping their clients disappear and reappear with a new identity. Each episode focuses on the interview where The Amelia Project decide whether or not to take on a client. We get to know why they need to disappear, and what their tailor made fake death will look like. The mysterious Interviewer seems to have only one real criteria when picking clients: “Do you have an interesting story?”
The show mixes comedy with healthy doses of mystery and suspense, and might appeal to lovers of both comedy and caper stories.
Reviewers have been more than enthusiastic. Here are some of the things they’ve said:
“Without a doubt the best new podcast to come out in the last year.” – EAST_Corps_Productions
“After two episodes, I was hooked.” – FanGirl Nation Magazine
“superb acting and writing” – little human reviews
