Prairie Dogs follows Neil, an uncool cubicle worker (or "prairie dog") who becomes the victim of identity theft. When he discovers the thief has created a much more fulfilling, kick-ass life with his identity, he decides to make the charismatic conman his life coach. The Filgos will write and executive-produce.
