About The Circuit
“The Circuit” is an episodic series (anthology) somewhat like “Black Mirror” or “The Twilight Zone” except each seemingly unrelated episode is a piece of a deeper story line. Each episode takes place in the enormous city of ‘Urbiessa’, a cross between “Metropolis” and “Gotham” and will concentrate on a specific sub-genre such as Sci-Fi Action, Sci-fi Mystery, etc… What makes the Circuit different, is that the stories are written by science fiction fans. These stories will be placed into the capable hands of 10 amazing directors, a group of talented star actors, a professional crew who will collaborate and work side by side with the fans to energize each story.
Okay, that’s the official take on it.
