Description

Proof of concept for a television show, FEMPIRE is a grounded satirical sci-fi set in a near future world where women are the boss. A reverse "Handmaid's Tale" that's gone through the Ryan Murphy machine, way less tirture, way more camp. It explores questions about corruption of power and equality of genders.
