Meld - TV Series

25 year old Karine Ahmed tries a new party drug called Meld. The next morning she discovers she can eavesdrop on other people's texts, emails, searches and photos – their entire digital lives are suddenly accessible to her, as easy as thinking.

It's fun – until she discovers that a dangerous group is using these abilities to control politicians and other powerful elites. Karine soon gets drawn into uncovering the truth behind Meld, where it came from, and why it exists.

Meld is currently optioned by Breakthrough Entertainment and pitching to broadcasters (March 2019).

The Wait - Digital Series

A haunted love story between a ghost and a girl who need each other in order to be seen.

Starring Keeya King (Handmaids Tale, Brown Girl Begins), Jessica Clement (Pure, Hemlock Grove), and Stephen R. Hart (Wynona Earp, Shadow Hunters).

Currently in development.

Binge - Short Film

A mysterious envelope arrives at Jen's door, sending her on an increasingly dangerous hunt to discover its intent.
