PROJECT: BLACK the web-series

LOGLINE: The US government is forced to create a top-secret black ops group due to a series of attacks that target the CIA on American soil. 

 SYNOPSIS: The series follows Agent Carnahan, a CIA Operative who began his career with the US Navy SEALs and later DEVGRU, otherwise known as the naval special warfare development group. The first six part story that opens the series is about the assassination of the director of the CIA by an unknown bomber, known only in the story as the UNSUB. After the attack, Carnahan is made the point man for the investigation and follows a lead to a small town on the edge of the Uzbekistan/Afghanistan border. The finale of the six-part series culminates in Chicago with another bombing attempt on the leaders of the United Nations. At the conclusion the decision is made to create a black ops team to work “outside the lines” and handle future threats.

Risks and challenges

Thanks for checking out our project. We need your help to make BLACK a reality. We feel we have the right team to make this series a success.

As you can see by the trailer in the video link above, we can create a high quality project on a very limited budget. The funding we are asking for will give us what we need to complete this 6 part series.

The cast and crew we've assembled is top notch, but without you it means nothing. Please help support our project, either through your contribution or by just spreading the word online to you friends. Thanks for your support!

BLACK out.
