The show follows the hopes, struggles, and triumphs of Mr. Mysterio, an amateur astrologer and untrained advice columnist. Munoz, a graduate of the Theatre Department’s BA Program in Acting, stars as Mr. Mysterio in this ongoing tale of everyday people with the desire to create and to connect.

The series is based on a character created by Mark Lemley, a columnist for The Contributor newspaper in Nashville. The show is produced by Mark Lemley, Tasha A.F. Lemley, and the Nashville Story Garden, an incubator for new work in film, theatre, and modern media. Munoz is Artistic Director of the Nashville Story Garden.

The Mr. Mysterio Podcast’s first season will include six episodes, all available to download through iTunes. For more information, go to
