Zerks Log, a science-fiction comedy web series, is scheduled to run for 18 episodes and is aiming to launch on Monday, March 16. True to form, the teaser trailer gives us just enough to set up the show – it appears to be a sort of captain’s-log format show that gives us the story behind a long lost space expedition – and just a hint of wackiness to keep us wanting more. Zerks Log is brought to us by Storyforge Labs, a new Connecticut-based production company, though precious few details about the show or the company were available. Why so coy, Storyforge? All we have is this:
“Three time fragments ago, Captain Zerks Ganymedewski, and his ship the Venturi 553, disappeared without a trace. What happened to Zerks and his ship? No one knew until the recent discovery of the Venturi’s log capsule – its “black box”. As the League of Outstanding Planets begins reviewing the evidence from the log, the truth will be revealed.
Captain Fantastic? Well, Zerks certainly thinks so! However, the reality is perhaps just a bit different! Watch and find out for yourself as Zerks Log is revealed in this 18 episode sci-fi comedy web series.”
We do have a few more details, thanks to Steve Lettieri (Executive Producer of Storyforge Labs): Ben Alpi plays Captain Zerks Ganymedewski, alongside Rob King, Sarah Babb, and Beth Smith. Steve Lettieri, Rob King, and Chris Conway are the co-creators and producers, and Lettieri will also be directing.
Many news writers died to bring us this information.
