Description of movie: Desperate for validation and his own taste of fame and fortune, Paul Moran - Cryptozoologist, attempts to lead an expedition to Okanagan Lake to prove the existence of the legendary creature, Ogopogo. His efforts go pear-shaped when instead of success, all that comes to light are his foibles and the blunders of his mismatched team of dedicated and not-so-dedicated adventurers as all their best laid plans sink in a sea of conflicting motives and incompetence.
It will air Saturday, July 10th at 7:00 p.m., so if you live in the area, go see it! :)
