Production Description

Casting "Aquaman: The Teen Drama," a comedic web series consisting of five 5-minute episodes (you can think of it as a 25-minute short film). Producer states: "In simplest terms, it’s 'Gossip Girl' starring Aquaman, and by Aquaman we mean the DC Comics superhero, member of the Justice League, and heir to the throne of Atlantis. In full spandex at all times, which no one finds unusual. All the other roles are based on characters from actual Aquaman comics, but refashioned into people right at home on a CW show. The humor comes from everything being played totally straight. It looks and sounds like a real teen drama, full of wealthy backstabbing teens from Manhattan’s Upper East Side, but the presence of Aquaman makes the entire thing ridiculous. This project is for a mildly successful YouTube channel (1.6 million total views, videos featured on Gawker, CNN.com, Vulture, etc.) that has been producing humorous, geek-oriented videos for the past two years. Being a part of this could likely lead to an ongoing working relationship."
