In the tradition of STRANGER THINGS, the spookfest rolls out on the small screen – in this case YouTube, beginning Monday August 15.
The series, said to be a mix of Teen Wolf and Saw, features such seasoned names as Taylor Hay, Paul Stevans, Bryan McClure, Saige Ryan, Joey Luthman, and famed Viner, Nik Keswani. The lead actors bring with them a combined social media following into the millions, and are led through the series by director, Stephen David Brooks, who cut his horror teeth aside the famed writer, Stephen King.
STRINGS finds the characters drugged, hooded, and bound in a room with no apparent way out. What at first glimpse seems to be a random group of teens, the characters soon learn their link is much more than originally thought and someone has a score to settle… at any cost. They must work together to solve the room’s challenges if they have any hope of escape. But is escape even possible? No one will know until the series’ final, nail-biting episode.
A mix of tension, suspense, and blood, the series keeps viewers on the edge of their seats as they try to anticipate the next turn of events. And the faces keep viewers coming back, including seventeen-year-old theme song composer and singer, Ty Desharnais, who once appeared on X-Factor.
Desharnais’s music video, Beneath the Strings, has already been released in anticipation of the series’ pilot episode launch and can be seen on the project’s channel at www.stringsseries.com. In all, ten episodes will be released, beginning on August 15, 2016 and wrapping up on September 15, 2016.
The series, whose target audience is twelve to twenty-one year olds, hopes to fill a niche that is currently missing with current YouTube series offerings. “Many teens and tweens of today are watching online and using social media rather than turning to traditional television series for their viewing interests. We hope to fill the gap that currently exists between the television offerings and paid services and open source online viewing with a quality show that will appeal to our target group,” says Grace Lho, president of the show’s parent corporation, Trajan Productions, LLC. “This audience deserves something they can really sink their teeth into and enjoy.”
