The VPN Picks Up Chris Davis' Drama "Gangland"VPN is excited to announce the commission of Chris Davis' "Gangland", a Crime/Mystery series set in a not-too-distant future where all criminals are forced by a corrupt government to fend for themselves on a remote, and deadly island.
"Gangland," a Ninth Spectrum Production, was pitched to the network almost exactly one year ago, and after receiving a positive response from network executives and community members alike, its pilot debut on May 28 was a great success! Read the pitch & pilot here.
The new series is executive produced by Chris Davis ("Trinity," "Hellbound) and Amin Caluk ("Land of the Living Dead"), with Jason T. Davis serving as a producer for the series. The pilot was written by Chris Davis.
This marks the very first new series from the Ninth Spectrum production house, which has a multitude of projects in development for the future, such as spy drama "The Agency," dramedy webisode, "Screenwriters Paradise" and action/adventure drama "Trinity."
Showrunner, Chris Davis adds, "the story of Gangland is interesting to write because it's told from two sides. One, being focused on the lives of those forced to live on this criminally-run island, and the other, focusing on the corrupt society and government that sent them there, as well as the people those prisoners left behind. It should get more and more intense from week to week, as we reveal more about these characters and the worlds they live in."
The shows ensemble cast includes stars like Dominic Purcell, Melinda Clarke, Jeff Bridges, Idris Elba, Michelle Rodriguez, Peter Dinklage, Gina Torres and more! [Season One Opening Credits]

"Gangland" producers are hoping for an Summer-Fall 2014 premiere, but more information in regards to a release will come as production continues to move forward!
