“Cryptos” TV Show’s Pre Production Begins
Reports say the “Cryptos” TV series (which will be acted and directed by Hollywood actor Kevin Connolly) will be based on the incidents surrounding a young startup making an effort of launching an entertainment platform backed by cryptocurrency.
The television series is reportedly co-produced by Jason King and Erik Sords, the Academy School of Blockchain’s co-founders. Jason King became famous for starting a philanthropic initiative, Sean’s Outpost in Pensacola, a Florida-based homeless shelter that is powered by cryptocurrency donations.
While explaining his involvement with the television project, Jason King said during an interview:
“The series is being produced by American Cinema International and we’re currently in pre-production at the moment… I came on board about six months ago after reading the pilot and I helped develop the story architecture for the first season — We hope to start filming in May.”
The Plot of “Cryptos” TV Series
The “Cryptos” television show will try to showcase the effort and struggle that goes into financing movies. This struggle leads the protagonist group of friends in funding a project that uses digital currencies for creating peer-to-peer film studio. The plot revolves around the struggles of this group of friends, their relationships, friendship, and more. Interestingly, the concept of the show seems to be inspired by the real life efforts of Erik Sords, who is currently trying to develop Dionysia (a decentralized global studio) in L.A.
The Entourage series actor Kevin Connolly said while speaking about “Cryptos”:
“[Sords and King] want to bring cryptocurrencies to the mainstream for the better of cryptocurrency and I’m just the filmmaker interested in telling cool stories and exploring cool characters — For me, it’s about relationships and friendships — That’s what people tune in to see.”
“Cryptos is a scripted prime-time television series taking place in the midst of the global crypto currency phenomena that showcases how blockchain technology is revolutionizing the world around us. This comedic drama follows five young filmmakers as they discover how blockchain technology can be used to help finance their film and TV projects outside of the traditional network system. Cryptos is in the vein of other scripted shows like Silicon Valley, Entourage, and Ballers.”
