Brand New Cherry Flavour

It’s the early 90s and aspiring filmmaker Lisa finds herself staying with an old friend whilst she pursues a lead on having her film produced. When she meets director Lou Burke (Eric Lange) Lisa thinks this is it – her film will be extended to feature-length, but as is Hollywood, Burke double-crosses her and gives her film away. With revenge in mind, she contacts Boro – a strange woman who claims to deal in the supernatural. Of course, her involvement will lead to consequences for all parties but the narrative develops into a more than strange acid trip of a journey, that could literally go anywhere in this Netflix-noir type series. Starring Rosa Salazar and Catherine Keener.
