Another TV pilot pitch

This one would be like the X Files or The Americans, set in the near-future, maybe twenty years from now. We live in the aftermath of all the crises that are looming now. Miami is underwater, as is New Orleans, Houston, big parts of NYC, Boston, Baltimore, DC.

The story takes place in a small midwestern city dealing with all the lunacy that comes from having liberals and other city-dwellers invade. Because of the huge population shifts and the precipitous drop in income, and public services, most tax money is spent to fund a police state.

There is an underground movement that fights for liberty and in private practices a religion based on the lifestyle of the late 20th century. People have bomb shelters with SUVs that parents have "dates" in. Like The Wire we see things from all perspectives.

The main character is a lovable bumbling cop, who, like Schindler, keeps a private stash of refugees in a shelter under his back yard. In Season 3 we find out that president is secretly an alien. That makes things interesting.

One of the refugees is Rachel Maddow, another is from Fox News. Mayhem ensues as they fight over who or what is to blame for the mess we're in. We know the truth.
