Corruption. Money. Power. Sex. Water.
In response to viewers in search of a dramatic fictional web series "that's actually good," this is it. Inspired by our favorite critically acclaimed shows ("The Wire," "The West Wing," "Six Feet Under," "Boardwalk Empire"), "Body Politic" is a character-driven drama from 917 Films and the brilliant mind of writer/director and former playwright Steve Rousseau. It aims to change the game by raising the bar for dramatic web series. It will both entertain you and stimulate your brain with smart, sensational writing and acting.
While "Body Politic" seems at first glance to be about politics, it's about much more. It's about human beings trying to make it in a brand-driven, power-hungry world. It's about how different reality can be from the story we get through the media. It's about an individual who's trying to do the right thing when the lines of morality are blurred. And it's about quality scripted programming, the kind many of us crave, getting to see the light of day. (IndieGoGo)
