‘Alter Boy’ Pilot Shoot Announced for October – Tivoli, New York
DALLAS, TX – Texas based production studio Common Era Films took the leap into television production earlier this week announcing the development of their first television series ‘Alter Boy’. The announcement comes shorty after production wrapped this summer for the feature documentary ‘Dig Deep – The Pathway Beyond the NFL Draft’, whose premiere date has yet to be released. Executive Producer John Strawn shared his enthusiasm for what looks to be an exciting year to come in film and television for Common Era.
John Strawn – Executive Producer
“I couldn’t be more pleased with the direction our streaming slate is taking for the upcoming year. We battled tooth and nail the first few years with development, but now everything is falling into place. It’s almost feels at time that we are destined to be here. Like the saying goes, if you build it they will come.”
Co-created by Evan Leone and Tim McArdle, Alter Boy tells the story of a young man coming into his own skin and having to face the reality of his pedigree. As he reflects on the choice he once mistakenly made he battles with the fate of his future and involvement in the family business – the most secretive white supremacist group in New York State, the BROTHERHOOD.
The Alter Boy Pilot is set in the bedrock of the Catskill Mountains in the towns of Tivoli and Kingston, New York. Tivoli is a picturesque, colonial town about two hours hours north of New York City. Audiences might remember Tivoli from the USA TV Series Eyewitness shot in 2016.
Alter boy features an explosive group of seasoned cast including Evan Leone (Feed the Beast) , Peter Reznikoff (Silence Patton), Theodore Copeland (Second Chance) and Kevin Craig West (For the Love of the Game) just to name a few. The cast is joined by a range of up comers and featured extras including Valynn Turkovich and Alex Emanuel.
