‘TSA America’: ‘Supernatural’ star Misha Collins just launched a new series
The Supernatural star introduced his new series, TSA America: Level Orange, with a live webcast Saturday.
Supernatural fans are no strangers to dystopian horror, but actor Misha Collins is taking the genre in a slightly less fantastical direction: the nightmare of Transportation Security Administration (TSA) checkpoints.
Collins’ latest side-project is a series of short films called TSA America: Level Orange, which launched on Saturday with a live webcast from Collins and a handful of celebrity guests. The dark comedy series was co-written by Collins’ wife Vicki Vantoch and includes a cameo from Supernatural co-star Jensen Ackles’ wife Danneel, which was more than enough to entice fans of the hit show.
Conspiracy theorists are already wondering if one of the shorts is a nod to Supernatural’s Destiel, since it involves Misha Collins’ TSA character giving a repressed Texan a homoerotic pat-down, and Jensen Ackles is from Texas. Coincidence, or an intentional Dean Winchester/Castiel surreal airport AU fanfic? With Misha Collins, it could honestly go either way. After all, he knows his audience. And that audience is big enough to crash a video-streaming site in their enthusiasm to watch Collins talk about an airport checkpoint sitcom on a Saturday afternoon.
Hey guys, bear with us. We crashed the stageit servers. Surprise, surprise. Bear with us.
