Tether is a Science Fiction series that plays with the dark side of new technology. Each episode exists independently of the others, connected only by the Quantum Tether Link - a small physical implant at the base of the skull that allows for two or more people to be entangled at the atomic level. From sophisticated psychological drama to bone crunching action, this technology creates a phenomenon of limitless storytelling applications and perspectives.
Tether currently in development as a Science Fiction/Drama Television Series with Tim Reis (Bad Blood: The Movie, Goat Witch, The Demon’s Rook) as showrunner and several other up and coming directors interested as potential episode directors. For example: Joe Begos (Almost Human, The Mind’s Eye), Graham Skipper (Sequence Break), Jackson Stewart (Beyond the Gates), Jenna Kanell (Max & the Monster, Bumblebees), and Mark Covino (A Band Called Death, The Crest). We are currently working with Arvold Casting (Loving, House of Cards, TURN), seeking name talent.
