SYNOPSIS

TV Maintenance presents television audiences with four scenarios, each the length of a typical commercial. In each of these short videos, Wet Wipe, Bars and Tone, Tube-Tied, and Off Air, the Disorientals are trapped behind the glass of the boob tube’s screen. Boxed in, we are charged with the task of performing maintenance on a technology on the wane: the analog TV set.
