About

COCKTAILS - THE SERIES

Lifelong filmmaker and project creator Ron Merk has written a show with an unforgettable group of characters and assembled an amazing cast, mostly of local San Francisco-based actors for this slick, stylish and sexy look at life in San Francisco.

Click on the following link to hear a short interview about the creation of the show: http://bit.ly/dYOzux

As darkness falls on the city of San Francisco, people escape from their everyday lives into the nighttime landscape of the bar scene. It’s a world punctuated by flashing light, loud music, swirling color and emotions. The walls around secrets and desires crumble and fall away with a little help from alcohol, drugs and opportunity. "Cocktails" provides an unguarded portrait of San Francisco and the human condition in a Technicolor film noir palette.

The show focuses on the lives, loves, families and friends of the bartenders who work in seven different San Francisco bars: Jet, Chuck, Austin, Merrick, Wayne, Beau and Skip. Some are straight. Some are gay, bi-sexual, transgendered or questioning who they are. The twist: every one of the bartenders has a profound or disturbing secret, and the fabric of our drama will be woven from these secrets and how each truth will ultimately unravel.

If you’re wondering if “Cocktails” is primarily a straight or gay show, the answer is simple. The show is a drama about life, about people, and how they all want the same things. Everyone wants to be safe, to be loved and respected, to live in a decent place, to work at a job that gives them personal satisfaction, and above all to be free to pursue their dreams no matter what those dreams might be. At the end of the day, our perceived differences of race, ethnicity, gender or sexual preference are really very small and insignificant. So, the answer is YES! It’s a straight and a gay show with everything and everyone in between.

More important, our show has the potential to change the discussion of race in our culture, to re-frame the way we look at “the others” (minorities of all kinds) and how those minorities look at themselves. More importantly, "Cocktails" has the power to heal through understanding.

The funds raised here will be used complete the pilot film that we have been shooting. In exchange for your contributions, you get some great premium values from $25 to $3500.
