The RIDES.TV platform from Fourth Wall Studios seamlessly integrated video content with phone calls, emails, and text messages. But this dynamic posed a question: could you only tell stories in a world that had modern technology?
To answer this question, I created the show pilot “Airship Dracula,” a radical re-imaging of Bram Stoker’s classic story, set in an alternate version of the nineteenth century that had a steam-powered equivalent of the internet. Phone calls became wireless radio. Text messages became telegrams. We created alternate versions of social media platforms.
Starring: Alan Tudyk, Tammin Sursok, and Paul Sorvino
