Gunpowder & Sky’s DUST Announces New Sci-Fi Series Alt

-

Gunpowder & Sky’s sci-fi label DUST announced today that it has begun production in Albuquerque and Edgewood, New Mexico on new sci-fi series Alt, directed by Trevor Stevens (Rock Steady Row) and starring Catherine Parker (The Haunting of Hill House, Lapham Rising), Sam Anderson (Forrest Gump, Water for Elephants), Joseph Lee Anderson (Harriet, American Soul), Travis Hammer (Godless, Ray Donovan), Shiva Negar (American Assassin) and Jan Uddin (Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Injustice).

The production will last 23 days in the area, has employed 68 New Mexico residents, and will utilize an Albuquerque production office for nearly three months.

Alt is a sci-fi spin-off series based on the award-winning short film, GLOW, created and directed by Douglas Jessup, which premiered on DUST. The 10-episode series started production in New Mexico on November 10th.

“DUST has quickly become a breeding ground for the best creative minds in sci-fi, and it’s exciting to be working with DUST talent and developing their ideas into longer form series and films,” said Jude Harris, SVP of Development & Production, Gunpowder & Sky.

While treading heavily into the paranormal, everything in Alt is rooted in reality. It’s a story of ordinary folks pulled into an extraordinary situation. Taking place in rural Appalachia in a one-stoplight town populated by salt-of-the-earth-type townsfolk, the series follows a young heroine Val, played by Parker, who returns home to investigate her father’s bizarre disappearance. As she follows the clues further down the rabbit hole, Val and her friends will need a crash-master-course in advanced scientific theory and spiritual mysticism to solve the mystery.

The project is being produced by Barry Barclay, Tara Billik and Jude Harris at Gunpowder & Sky with Nick Phillips.
