Jason Cook (ex-Shawn, DAYS; ex-Matt, GH, here with girlfriend Terry Song) debuted his new, feature-length mockumentary film, State of Bacon last night at the Fleur Cinema & Café in Des Moines, IA. "We are releasing the film in a theater in Des Moines as a test market for the theaters that have expressed interest in the film," explains Cook, who wrote and directed the film, which chronicles the actions of an oddball cast of characters leading up to the annual Blue Ribbon Bacon Festival. "Mostly dine-in theaters are our target, and luckily they are most interested for the mutually agreeable idea that this film goes best with bacon and a beverage. Yes, we feel it is only right to serve bacon with the film. So we are going to see if the public is with us, and then make the plan to roll it out into other markets at the end of summer."
