Super Deluxe Goes to Sundance
Super Deluxe—Turner's premium, multi-platform entertainment company with the largest and fastest-growing channels targeted at creative youth—lands at the Sundance Film Festival this week with two entries in the festivals Indie Episodic program.
In Program 2, comes This Close, about deaf best friends Kate and Michael trying to balance their personal and professional lives.
The six-episode half-hour series, based on a series of shorts shown at last year’s festival, will air on Sundance Now beginning February 14.
The pilot episode of Super Deluxe's The Passage appears in Program 5, and follows a wide-eyed mute (Philip Burgers, who creates and stars) on the run from a pagan cult. His scatterbrained ineptitude keeps getting him in trouble, but two agents who’ve been hired to recapture him always seem to be one step behind, resulting in a series of misadventures that span the globe.
Both programs run throughout the festival, so if you're going to be in Park City, be sure to catch them while you can.
