You know we LOVE webseries here at aqnb, we even wrote a full report about them last year. So here’s our latest discovery & proposition… “Steps”, a ten-episode endeavor that was created for on-line consumption by Chattanooga resident and actor Dylan Kussman (Dead Poets Society, Leatherheads ) and shot entirely within the city limits by local cinematographer Tim Coﬁeld.
“The Steps is a noir mystery web series that tells the story of Charlie Madison, a lowlife private investigator from Los Angeles who’s forced to live under an assumed identity in middle America to escape his criminal past. A key player in the blackmailing enterprise of Dante Pelinsano (based on the infamous “P.I. to the Stars” Anthony Pellicano), Charlie has to split town when the Assistant D.A. who put Dante in prison seems to determined to take him down as well. Charlie takes on the name “Ron Harlin” and starts driving east, stopping when he feels he’s gone far enough, which happens to be the midsized city of Chattanooga, TN”.
It might not be filmed in super spectacular HD, with a great budget or big names, but the argument is solid and the acting is pretty impressive, I’ll leave it with ya….!
very dark, very simple, very engaging 😉 The rest of the episodes can be watched on their youtube channel (and more to come…)
