60 frames: Blood Cell


Directed by Eduardo Rodriguez.

Description sounds like a horror version of Cavite.

From which looks like an online studio. I have to get around to exploring them more. Their other shows include The Kids In the Hall (haven't seen it yet) and The Carpet Brothers (big stars like David Spade, no laughs).

Gemini Division

Stars Rosario Dawson.
Starts August 18th online.

NBC picked it up. But is leaving it online for fear of ending up with another Quarterlife (bombed on TV).

The trailer includes 39 seconds of title cards (shudder) and it looks like the show is a lot of poorly-blended, un-corrected greenscreen. Poor Rosario.

This seems to be the new series business plan (for industry insiders). Create a web series and as you're shooting it, sell it to a network.

It worked for Leverage.
