Another new web series, this one entitled “13 Minutes to Midnight”, is debuting this week, just in time for Halloween. To differentiate itself from the pack, “13 Minutes to Midnight” will also be available in 3D!
“13 Minutes to Midnight” will have its worldwide premiere with the first episode, “Halloween – Part 1” on October 28, 2009, hosted in association with Daily Motion via the official website with additional plans to be featured on YouTube’s 3D Channel. In an interesting twist, the program lends itself as a product placement endeavor for alternative programming from the broadcast networks due to their continued overall advertising ratings erosion caused by ever-growing Internet content and DVR penetration. Said products featured range from Monster Energy Drink to Netflix.
“13 Minutes to Midnight” stars Erika Smith, Heather McDonald, Liz Roman, Donato Crowley, and Jessica Hall and features a special celebrity cameo by Perez Hilton in the second episode, “Halloween – Part 2.” The project was directed by Peter Capozzi and produced by Ray Manzella and Philip Fagen.
You can check out star/host, Erika Smith, in the intro-teaser now available in 2D on YouTube. The English version is below, but if that’s not your native tongue, she also taped versions in six other languages — German, French, Spanish, Italian, Japanese, and Russian.
