Anarchy TV is a 1998 low budget, independent comedy film. It was directed by Jonathan Blank, and features Alan Thicke, Jessica Hecht, Jonathan Penner, Tamayo Otsuki, George Wendt, Mink Stole, and Ahmet, Dweezil, Diva and Moon Unit Zappa. Blank was nominated for the Maverick Spirit Award at the Cinequest San Jose Film Festival for Anarchy TV.
The plot involves a group of young people who run an uncensored public-access television cable TV. They are ejected from their show when the station is purchased by a televangelist, who considers their show pornographic. In response, the performers hijack the station and begin broadcasting a 24-hour all nude show in order to gain sympathy for their cause.
