Beverlywood. An online series about a different kindof mob war. Hollywood artists and Beverly Hills yuppies are the rival families, but the meaning of life or death isn't what you’d expect. Or maybe just what you’d expect from LA’s two success-hungry hordes. The first online series with a TV-sized cast and production scope, it tells a story big and bold.
Sexy and troubled, heiress Jerricha Palmer is serving a house arrest. She’s one drug violation away from losing her entire fortune. To keep her occupied and drug-free, her bodyguards need an unusual plan. What ensues is a silent conflict that will bring the whole neighborhood to boil.
Offering Jerricha’s house as a ‘safe zone’ in a neighborhood-wide assassination game, the yuppies and artists are encouraged to visit… all while stalking and hunting each other everywhere else. The assassinations are fake, but in Beverlywood even waterguns can kill.
The winner of the mob war will get everything they wish. A starmaking contract for a Hollywood artist, or an upper management seat for a Beverly Hills yuppie. But losing means a return to thankless toil, a fate worse than death for the driven elite.
Join Jerricha, her colorful bodyguards, and the rival gangs of rat-racing yuppies and struggling artists. Watch sibling loyalties and love interests all get tested under the pressure and paranoia. See the forming of mob families from the ground up. Prey upon the weak, fawn upon thestrong… Welcome to Beverlywood.
TV for the Web
Beverlywood is the first online series to bring a TV-sized production to the webscreen. It has a cast of 25 actors, nearly as many locations, and a true TV production schedule. The familiar TV episode format has been compressed to two minutes, without sacrificing its arc and complexity like early ‘webisodes’. Each pair of Beverlywood episodes has a 'catch' up trailer, a four act structure, and multiple scene cuts a la primetime TV. Like the 1980s reinvetion of the video clip, Beverlywood aims to take the shortform episode to its next incarnation... watch and enjoy!
