PETROL THE SERIES
Weaving Through AFM
Nominated for Best Ensemble Cast and Best Lead Performance at the upcoming Rio WebFest
N5 Pictures wheels into AFM with international rights to the IPF funded series, Petrol, a super-charged wheel-enhanced dramatic series, produced in partnership with the Independent Production Fund.
This high-octane, story driven series revolves around five daring drivers from all walks of life who work for a mysterious figure known only as “The Employer”. The Employer assigns each driver various tasks that require them to use their unique driving skills. Each character has her/his own motivation for taking on these jobs, but the one thing they have in common is the valor to drive with reckless abandon.
Petrol has drawn in millions of viewers in just 5 episodes out of the gate. With a target age range of 18 – 35, skewing more male. An advertiser’s dream team.
Written and Produced by Ant Horasanli and Reza Sholeh, Directed by Horasanli. With Cinematography from Tyson Burger and Tomasz Kurek. And Editing by Horasanli.
Petrol stars Tyler Blake Smith, Kane Mahon, Kevin Corrigan, Jamie Elizabeth Sampson, Robert Gulassarian, Jimmy Yu, Mark Rival.
Recently Petrol was nominated for a couple of awards, Best Ensemble Performance (Action) and Best Male Performance in an Action Series (Kane Mahon, Patriot) at the Rio WebFest, taking place in early December.
