Production Description

Casting "Treadwater," a sci-fi thriller/drama web series. Personnel states: "Set in the wake of a global economic meltdown, "Treadwater" is a dark sci fi thriller/drama about a team of high tech special operatives, who will do whatever it takes to maintain peace in a wold falling into chaos. What makes this story so compelling, is the characters. Each operative has a uniquely dark past and particular reason for having been recruited into the "program." Collectively, they appear more as a gang of anti-heroes, each with internal conflicts and demons that they must overcome. It's essentially "The Dark Knight" meets "Mission Impossible" meets "Lost." "Treadwater" originally began as a graphic novel and is now being adapted into a live action web series (no animation, all actors) similar to how "The Walking Dead" began as a graphic novel. Betterdays will be producing and co-directing this series and we will have Emmy Award winning cinematographer, Frank Prinzi ("Blacklist," "Law and Order") making sure this series is as visually stunning as it is emotionally stimulating."
