In Boston, Massachusetts, the birthplace of America's only Revolution, a city that survived an 86-year curse, where the cobblestone out numbers its inhabitants and bartenders are the equivalent to rock-stars, six twenty-something's attempting to navigate life will share laughs, successes and the oft-frequent hangover. (All of which can be the result of an Irish Car-bomb.) With a little guidance from some recognizable locals, three friends from their childhood days in Quincy – Griffin, Scotty and Sully – and three friends from their formative/informative college years – Alana, Siobhan and Cat –will discover what life and love off the Red Line in the hub of New England has to offer.
Forget Whitey Bulger, bank-robbing Charlestown folk and those Southie boys who like to beat up the Hahvard kids – this is the true story of six individuals picked to live in a house off the Boston Harbor. (Ok, so maybe not – but you get the point.)
What will the money be used for?
The twenty-five minute pilot episode for 617 is already shot and completed. We need to maintain production in the city of Boston with our crew of roughly twenty-five, our producers combined are six individuals, and our writers table is compromised of eight contributors. We are in pre-production to shoot the next two episodes and the money we raise will be used to pay for our crew, equipment rental, to feed everyone, marketing and maintaining the website. To view our pilot episode to see what 617 is all about go to www.617theseries.com.
Some of the rewards we are offering range from 617 t-shirt's, signed pilot script, a cameo in an episode, or getting to sit in at one of our writing sessions.
Thank you so much for your support!
