From the Press Release
New Form Digital announced today the premiere of The Fourth Door, an original 12-episode series co-created by Tony E. Valenzuela, the award-winning writer, director and founder of YouTube’s top horror and sci-fi channel BlackBoxTV, and actor and producer Jarrett Sleeper. The Fourth Door, which originated as a short film commissioned during New Form Digital’s first Incubator Series, will debut exclusively on go90, a mobile first, social entertainment platform, and is the first of six original series New Form is creating for go90.
The Fourth Door follows a young woman named Lain (Coleman) who wakes up in the strange world of Limbo with very few memories of how she got there or who she is. She soon meets a young astronaut named Colin (Miller) who joins her as they adventure through a supernatural world made from old memories and dreams to rescue the man she loves (Antosy) from the King of Limbo (Graceffa) before he can consume them all in his infinite nothingness.
Monique Coleman (High School Musical franchise) is the series lead, with Reid Miller, YouTube sensation Joey Graceffa, Jarrett Sleeper, who also co-created The Fourth Door, and Michael Antosy also starring.
“New Form Digital was proud to work with Tony and Jarrett to create an original and suspenseful story that is sure to leave viewers on the edge of their seats,” said Kathleen Grace, Chief Creative Officer for New Form Digital. “It takes this level of creativity and storytelling to stand out and we’re confident The Fourth Door will shine on go90 as a high-quality production.”
“The Fourth Door is also about creating new mythology. It is a time in our culture for new heroes, with different faces, diverse backstories and new ideas for how to solve the problems which plague us as people. I think Lain’s story is a beautifully intricate one, but my son keeps reminding me that it’s just an adventure story,” said Tony E. Valenzuela, co-creator and director of The Fourth Door. “From love and regret to adventure and laughter, this series explores a profound range of emotions and we’re so eager to share this wild journey,” said Jarrett Sleeper, actor and co-creator of The Fourth Door.”
The series launch will be supported by a national pop-up tour featuring an experiential installation that takes visitors through the world of Colin’s ‘demons’ and will also offer a chance to meet the cast and creators in select markets. Tour stops include Phoenix, AZ (Oct. 29); Tucson, AZ (Oct. 30); Austin, TX (Nov. 5); Nashville, TN (Nov. 7); Stillwater, OK (Nov. 9); and Hollywood, CA (Nov. 13).
