Besides the numerous genre movies playing in the just-opened 16th annual Tribeca Film Festival (see previous item HERE), a bunch of promising TV shows, shorts and VR experiences will be unfolding. Fango just got its claws on some exclusive pics from THE MIDNIGHT SERVICE, a true-crime series about urban legends, notorious criminals, occult pop culture and first-hand accounts of the unknown. Screening as part of the Tribeca N.O.W. showcase, THE MIDNIGHT SERVICE is a short-form program which uses a documentary style to explore the mysterious in the visual language of authenticity. Each episode bounces between real-life anomalies, notorious criminals, the occult in our midst and first-hand accounts of the macabre.
The first two episodes of creators Dean Colin Marcial and Brett Potter’s THE MIDNIGHT SERVICE plays tonight (see details below). Marcial was named a 2015 Made in NY Fellow by the New York City Mayor’s Office and is a recipient of the 2017 Tribeca All Access Grant. Potter co-founded production services company Meadow Street Films and is also chairman of the board at Borscht, a film and arts non-profit. As a narrative producer, his films have premiered and won jury prizes at Sundance, SXSW, AFI, Rotterdam and more. Potter was a 2014 fellow at the Sundance Creative Producing Institute. Here is the line-up for THE MIDNIGHT SERVICE at Tribeca:
Episode 1: “Pizza Delivery”
Synopsis: One pepperoni, two cheese and one Hawaiian—an order one unlucky pizza delivery boy will never forget.
