Meteor City is an alternate history sci-fi audio drama created and produced by
Wrightwood Studios. Wrightwood Studios is based out of the Quad Cities (The Quad Cities is a region of cities in the U.S. states of Iowa and Illinois: Davenport and Bettendorf in southeastern Iowa, and Rock Island, Moline and East Moline in northwestern Illinois) and comprised of a diverse team of writers, directors, actors, and sound designers.
METEOR CITY SEASON ONE: In 2008, a freak meteor shower hit Detroit, killing hundreds and displacing thousands. Hundreds of people were quarantined for radiation exposure. 10 years later, Bianca Diaz, a vlogger returns to Detroit. Wanting a change of pace, Bianca decided to come back home for the 10 year anniversary, to tell the stories of the dead, the missing and the remaining citizens of Detroit, now called Meteor City. Shortly after returning, Bianca realizes that Meteor City, New Detroit and the people left behind are not what they appear to be. One frustrating question after another leads Bianca to the truth... or more accurately the lies that New Detroit was built on.
