The Prop 8 Revolution Will Be Televised (Sort of)

After the Supreme Court blocked a plan to broadcast the trial of California's same-sex marriage ban on YouTube, two filmmakers have found a loophole. Using the transcripts and lookalike actors (including Oscar-nominated Tess Harper and 24's Gregory Itzin) to play the judge, lawyers, plaintiffs, defendants, and witnesses, the filmmakers are reenacting the trial of Proposition 8 and posting it on YouTube. While E! tried the reenactment approach with the Michael Jackson trial, the Prop 8 version has a more legitimate if less engrossing feel.
