Writer-Director Eli Sasich Discusses Canneseries Digital Player ‘Atropa’

  • Variety
Writer-director Eli Sasich’s Studio Plus series “Atropa” is competing in the inaugural edition of the Canneseries Digital program.

The seven, ten-minute episodes were produced by Vimeo, which has hosted a number of Sasich’s shorts in the past, and his own Corridor production studio, and can be streamed on the Studio Plus mobile app.

Beyond pay-tv quality visual effects and an action-packed script, the series also boasts some serious sci-fi star power in “Total Recall” and “Starship Troopers” alum Michael Ironside.

Sasich’s script was originally intended to be a feature-length screenplay, but segued easily into a seven-episode, ten-minute format in a process which Sasich described as “amazingly painless.”

Set in the not-too-distant future, Atropa is a time-warping, grungy sci-fi adventure which follows a troubled Off-World officer as he tracks a ship carrying someone important who had disappeared from his life. Each episode features twists and turns, and ends on a cliffhanger.
