In a collaboration with Pull The Wool Inc., Eyelight is producing a new short format tv show called Thumb Runner.
The dark comedy/action tv show consists of 10 x 10 minute episodes starring Dylan Bruno (Numb3rs, Saving Private Ryan), Deni Jordan (The Stunt Comedy Show) and Matt O’Toole (Last Man Standing).
Waking up to find his wife missing, Johnny is forced, by an awkward and irritable mob boss of unknown nationality, into a twistedly violent but comedic gauntlet of tasks that he must complete to win her back.
10 episodes. 10 Brutal tasks. One hell of an epic scavenger hunt.
Each episode will feature an impossible scenario with demented henchmen and a hilarious escape that leads into the next, as Johnny struggles to complete 10 tasks set up by his arch nemesis on the journey to recover his wife. As Johnny’s situation goes from bad to worse, it also leads him places we never expect, as he discovers the disturbingly simple and twisted reason behind the hunt.
Expect action, expect drama, expect comedy. But don’t expect to see your average plot scenarios. Thumb Runner takes us places that are both disturbing and weird, but also silly and fun. A cast of bizarre characters with outlandish backgrounds and talents make for mindless entertainment at its essence, dragging us through the strange world of low level gangsters who haven’t fully realized their dangerous and violent schemes.
Thumb Runner is produced and directed by Kasper Vejlø Kristensen and Dylan Bruno and will be released in late 2019.
