Economic problems, over spending and lack of government accountability fueled voters around the nation to join the Tea Party movement.
Now, Tea Partiers have their own television show.
Leaders at Colony Bay, the group behind the show, say "Courage, New Hampshire" is meant to counter Hollywood productions that tend to depict "conservatives and traditionalists and people of faith as halfwits." The one-hour drama will debut Sunday at a movie theatre in Monrovia, Calif., then head straight to DVD.

"Courage, New Hampshire" was created by Tea Partiers Jonathan Wilson and James Patrick Riley. The pair also founded Colony Bay Productions.
The soap opera style show is set in the 1700s and plays off the ideals of the founding fathers. Wilson and Riley say "Courage, New Hampshire" will reflect "the diversity of the (Tea Party) movement."
So far, the show has no distributors, but the producers are trying to strike a deal with conservative networks like Kelsey Grammer's Right Network and Glenn Beck's GBTV.
