Legendary band Alice in Chains has released the first two episodes of their new series “Black Antenna,” a dark sci-fi thriller set against the backdrop of the band’s Grammy-nominated album, Rainier Fog (BMG). Originally a 90-minute film, the series features frightening subjects and a killer soundtrack.
“Black Antenna” also stars Darri Ingolfsson (Dexter) as Nil, Lily Robinson as Malum, Eric Michael Cole (Gia, White Squall, Hangman), Mike Hatton (Green Book), Luke Shelton, Jerry Raines, and Daniel Louis Rivas.
“Black Antenna” tells the story of Alpha (“Green Book” actor Paul Sloan) and his 21-year-old daughter, Beta (Viktoriya Dov), who drive their beat-up truck across California in silence, speaking only telepathically. Together they rob and steal from the men the girl seduces, taking cellphones, laptops, whatever they can find. Alpha is trying to build something – an antenna – desperately trying to find a way to get a message to their people back home. Meanwhile, there are unspeakably dark forces who have discovered their existence and are now hell-bent on tracking them down and eradicating them before more of their kind can come and join them.
Directed by Adam Mason and written by Paul Sloan and Adam Mason, the series was produced by Elizabeth Mason and Nick Vallelonga, who recently won two Oscars (“Best Original Screenplay”) and (“Best Picture”) for “Green Book.” Vallelonga also has a cameo in episode one,” “The One You Know.”
The special makeup effects are by Autonomous FX (Blade Runner 2049, Bright, “Mindhunter,” Maze Runner). Jason Collins executive produced along with Alice In Chains.
Alice in Chains first teased the film/album connection with last May’s release of the track “The One You Know,” which was directed by Mason and featured an electrifying band performance interspersed with cryptic cinematic scenes from the film.
The band is currently touring Australia and New Zealand and recently announced an epic co-headlining summer amphitheater tour with Korn.
