You might not recognize Kevin Tancharoen‘s name right off the bat, but he’s the man behind the camera in the Mortal Kombat web series that has fans clamoring for a full length movie. Put him behind the camera, throw Eliza Dushku (Dollhouse) in front, and you’ve got my attention.
The Gable 5 will quickly activate your nerd-senses as you start to see actors like Steve Harris (Justified, Friday Night Lights) and James Morrison (Space Above and Beyond) that you’ll recognize from some of your favorite shows and movies.
Here’s the synopsis:
In a remote location, a secret facility exists unlike anything the world has ever seen. Run by Dr. Conrad Gable, a renowned neurologist, the facility is years ahead of it’s time when it comes to the technology it’s using to research the human body. With an unlimited budget backed by a classified department of the government, Dr. Gable’s motives appear to be for the greater good of humanity. – The chance to create a drug so powerful it could be used to win every battle, every war, with no casualties.
Now all he needs are, 5 test subjects…
Watch the first episode and met us on the other side to discuss:
What did you think?
Will Dushku be the only test subject, tested 5 times, or will we get a new subject with each webisode? Perhaps they will all dovetail into one group of people who ties it all together. There’s not much casting information out on the Internet yet, who else might we see as a test subject?
Everything seems to be happening in her mind as her gas soaked friend does the digital breaking apart effect at the end. Does that mean the rest of the fight was just in her head? Perhaps its a mixture of mental and physical real-world that helps push the subject towards that edge needed for the testing.
Of course, the question remains, what happens to the test subjects after all the testing is complete?
Will you be back for more?
