Here is the sysnopsis from their MySpace page:
On a thunderous planet somewhere deep in the galaxy, Queen Promedia has been a ruler of her people for a VERY long time. Because of this, she doesn't have to do much of anything except see that the citizens are satisfied (get yer head outta the toilet!). After a transmission featuring their favorite horror film star, Fabian G Gravewillow, is blacked out due to cancellation by both the network and the star(he died-what a drag), it is up to the Queen and her servant Dufus to resurrect him on planet Earth and find him filming headquarters in Hollywood's hills.
