The product of years of friendship and previous collaborations, Looking for Grace is the latest web series to take a crack at the online marketplace.
The 10-episode drama, which has yet to bow online, is currently exploring online distribution options and is expected to run between six and ten minutes per episode.
“We have been in talks with some distribution networks, but we have not planned a specific launch date since we want to focus on completing the project and working with a network to help distribute the content,” Grace producer Chris Palsho said.
Two trailers are available to pique viewers’ interest in the series, in which a young man discovers that his memories have been replaced by those of a mysterious woman named Grace and sets out on a journey to find her with the hopes of reclaiming that which he has forgotten. Along the road, he discovers a strange and humorous world, in which nothing is as it seems – and that he is not the only one looking for Grace.
Palsho and Grace creator-writer Nathaniel Halpern were childhood friends, collaborating on short films through high school as well as Long Holiday, their senior year feature-length project. When the duo went separate directions for college, Halpern met Grace director Aaron Rabin while taking a television production course at NYU.
Palsho, who through his work at a dot-com, realized the potential of original content for the web, reconnected with Halpern and brought Rabin into the fold for the trio to collaborate on an original Web series, thus creating Grace’s production team. The first draft of Grace was completed in September 2007.
So far, five episodes of Grace have been filmed and are currently in the editing stage. Episodes 6-10 are in production in Southern California.
