Los Angeles (PRWEB) December 4, 2009
Compulsions, an original episodic thriller produced for the Web, premieres today exclusively on Dailymotion.com. This dark, high suspense and violent Web series explores three seemingly “normal” people who act on their darkest desires. It is the first independently produced original series released by Impulsive Productions LLC. New episodes will run every weekday starting today through December 10, 2009 for an eight episode season.
Compulsions offers the tone of Dexter©, the suspense of Prison Break© and the darkness of the Sopranos©. Mark Sandler, who holds a dull desk job during the day, is a professional sadist at night. His best friend and colleague, Justine Davis, is a sweet-appearing innocent blonde who can pistol-whip like the pro she is. And then there’s Mark Sandler’s co-worker Cassandra Morrissey, a diligent hard-working IT geek who is an unrepentant voyeur, using her IT skills to spy on employees at home and work - including Mark. And don’t expect a tidy ending to season one. These characters are just getting started!
“Compulsions is unique because it executes a level of sophistication and dramatic themes that no series on the Web has attempted before,” said Bernie Su, co-founder of Impulsive Productions, and writer and creator of Compulsions. “We believe that there is a large audience hungry for smart, gritty, and serious content from a Web series and we plan to program for them.
