TRUTH SLASH FICTION

“Truth Slash Fiction” is an independent pilot I directed and produced, which won Best Comedy Pilot at SeriesFest and ITVFest, and was optioned by Lionsgate TV. Check out the trailer above, and scroll right for a fan video. About the show:

An irreverent dramedy that follows 16-year-old Emma Jacobs as she navigates the indignities of adolescence. Through it all, Emma clings tightly to the songs of the boyband “Truth”: a One Direction-style supergroup whose romantic earnestness is Emma's only refuge from the often cruel and anxiety-filled social interactions that make up her world. Emma's love of those sultry-voiced boys leads her to join a group of like-minded fans who channel their devotion in an unusual way: they write slash fiction (ie “gay erotic fan fiction”) involving the band they love so much.

Even though the band is not (yet) real, the trailer went viral on twitter and the band/show has some enthusiastic fans. They made this video to Truth’s track “Baby It’s You” (the creative geniuses behind TRUTH are Tim Rosser & Charlie Sohne)
