FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Chromosome 16 Productions & D Studios Productions Present an Original Web Series: BLACK BETTY
San Francisco, CA – October 14th, 2013 – Chromosome 16 Productions & D Studios Productions have joined forces to bring an original, dramatic series titled, Black Betty to the web. Based on an original screenplay penned by independent filmmaker Justin Berger, Black Betty tells the story of a young woman who seeks vengeance on the man who murdered her mother and ultimately uncovers a sinister conspiracy that threatens the entire world.
Series creator Justin Berger (Chromosome 16 Productions, HKL Films) will be serving as the show’s head writer and director for a majority of the episodes. Joining the production is series executive producer, David Schatanoff, Jr. who says, “D Studios Productions is really fortunate to be working with Chromosome 16 Productions, and fellow producer Michelle Fatale, to bring this story to life”.
Originally written as a feature film, creator Justin Berger explains why he decided to bring Black Betty to the internet. “It’s such a big story that I really wanted to give it room to breathe. By bringing it to an episodic format, Dave [Schatanoff] and I have been able to develop it in to the epic narrative I always envisioned it as.”
Schatanoff adds, “Black Betty is a project that got my attention way back when it was just a couple of pages long. It’s the type of robust story telling that I just eat up.”
Currently in the final stages of development, Black Betty is slated to begin production in early 2014. You can get the latest updates about the project at www.blackbettykills.com
