"The War On Drugs Like You've Never Seen It Before"
(PRWEB) August 31, 2015
Traverse Media presents a Wizeguys Comedy production, written and directed by Geo Santini, produced by Maurice Fadida and executive produced by Jose Daniel Bort.
The series stars Santini along with stalwart actors in the LA comedic scene, such as Eric Curtis Johnson, Wilmer Calderon and Erick Chavarria. “We let the material speak for itself through the right actors for the characters, instead of trying to cast up and play the stars’ game,” said Santini.
After showing an early cut of the episodes and flirting with several platforms for their release, the producers decided to engage Traverse Media as their distributor in North America. Traverse Media has a fluid working relationship with Amazon through several past film releases. “We’ve released several films through the platform, but BORDERLINE is the first series that we've placed on Amazon. Even though we have interest from other platforms to release it concurrently, we believed it was best if we put most of the attention in only one place and then spearhead from there,” said Cole Payne, CEO of Traverse Media.
In addition to Amazon Instant Video and Prime, the series will also be made available on additional platforms in 2016.
