Last Thursday, the North American Bitcoin Conference in Miami got a surprise visit when Kevin Connolly, the actor from the HBO series “Entourage,” announced a new TV show called “Cryptos” is under development. He hopes the new show will help the public better understand the innovative cryptocurrency ecosystem.
Digital currency fans will be intrigued to hear about a new television show called “Cryptos,” currently being directed by the Hollywood actor Kevin Connolly. The story follows a young startup trying to launch a crypto-fueled entertainment platform. Also, the series will feature Kevin Connolly, who has agreed to direct the show’s episodes.
The co-founders of the Academy School of Blockchain, Jason King as well as Erik Sords, are co-producing the series. The King is popular for helping start the Florida-based homeless shelter Sean’s Outpost in Pensacola, that’s an initiative powered by cryptocurrency donations.
The King said –
“The series is being produced by American Cinema International and we’re currently in pre-production at the moment. I came on board about six months ago after reading the pilot and I helped develop the story architecture for the first season — We hope to start filming in May.”
In the meantime, Erik Sords is in the midst of developing a decentralized global studio known as Dionysia in LA. The television show reflects how hard it is to finance movies, while forcing the group of friends to fund a project using digital currencies for creating a P2P film studio, much like the Dionysia concept.
The show’s actor and director, Kevin Connolly, thinks –
“People are scared to conceptualize cryptocurrencies because of a lack of understanding. People like me are still learning, but the curiosity is there.”
The Entourage series actor continued to say –
“[Sords and King] want to bring cryptocurrencies to the mainstream for the better of cryptocurrency and I’m just the filmmaker interested in telling cool stories and exploring cool characters — For me, it’s about relationships and friendships — That’s what people tune in to see.”
