Riese – a new web series is coming
Posted by geeksyndicate on October 14, 2009
With web shows like Sanctuary (Ok it’s now on Tv but we all know where it started),Dr Horrible, Gemini Division, Angel of Death, The Guild and more web series are really starting to get noticed and this can only be a good thing.
The next show to try it’s luck online is the Sci-Fi/Fantasy series Riese. The cast for the show includes Christine Chatelain ( Sanctuary, Supernatural, The Collector, The L-Word ). Ben Cotton (Harper’s Island, Stargate: Atlantis, Stan Helsing), Sharon Taylor (Stargate: Atlantis, Smallville), Patrick Gilmore (Stargate: Universe, Battlestar Galactica, Intelligence) and Ryan Robbins (Sanctuary, Battlestar Gallactica, The Guard).
I had a watch of the trailer and I have to say I’m intrigued. It doesn’t really give a lot away but it looks intersting enough to check out I reckon.
Have a watch of the trailer and then have a read of the synopsis to find out more.
The show is due to premier online on November 2nd.
Synopsis – Riese is a world of moral ambiguity and political intrigue. A decimated land populated by characters from dreams and nightmares. Loyalties are ever in question, suspicion in the minds of all. A power-hungry tyrant, Empress Amara – ruler of the kingdom Eleysia – has been conquering nation after nation in order to unite the people under one banner. From the shadows, however, an enigmatic group clearly wielded power over her. Called The Sect, they purported themselves to be the official religion of Eleysia, and began to spread alongside the nation’s borders, infecting the lands with chaos and turmoil.
And yet, despite the impending doom, a single beacon of light shines in Riese. A mysterious wanderer, she travels with her wolf Fenrir across this barren land. Branded as heretics by The Sect, Riese and Fenrir will pause to aid those in need as they travel, but they must evade capture at all costs. As she flees, she’ll piece together her past and her destiny, in a conflict that will hold the fate of this world in the balance – and the once peaceful kingdom of Eleysia will be the battlefield.
