What if... France created the PC first? What if France came up with cell phones? What if France invented the internet? What if it all came crashing down to the ground and was forgotten? Nestling its fictional story in a well-researched historical context, "The Lab" tells the story of these long-neglected French pioneers of the future that never really were. This riotous hodgepodge of social commentary, alternate history, retro-nostalgia, and workplace comedy, with its pop colors and eye for period detail, is a must for fans of such prestige cable dramas as "Mad Men" and "Halt and Catch Fire."
