Comment: Coming from The Lost Room‘s Christopher Leone, this pilot for a potential series delivers a Sliders meets Lost type of story and has a ton of potential (you can read my full review at this link). Mr. Leone talked about Parallels in a recent AMA he did on Reddit offering the following comments:
PARALLELS is kind of unusual. I made it with Fox Digital Studios, which isn’t a TV studio — they make content for the web. But now that these worlds have converged, especially on Netflix, the digital realm is now this kind of wild west for creating new stuff. We always knew PARALLELS was the beginning of something, we knew we were going to do more, but we weren’t sure what form it would take, whether it would be another ~90 minute installment, or a TV series, or what. So we’re figuring that out right now, which is pretty damn exciting.
He also commented that the the response to it thus far has been “phenomenal” and on his twitter account he has stated that
We are hellbent on making more PARALLELS! We’re figuring out the next steps now but I should have news to share very soon.
More installments of this one would definitely be welcome.
