The award-winning digital series, HERRINGS, continues its riveting story about Frank Briggs (Dax Richardson), a former skip tracer who helps people disappear in plain sight by disguising their digital footprint.
However, in Season Two, it’s Frank who has disappeared and his unexpected absence will reverberate with our ensemble of characters as they intersect and overlap within the mosaic of Philadelphia, including:
Vincent Ranieri (David Ogrodowski), the crooked private investigator and Frank’s so-called archrival, who may not be as crooked or as adversarial as he appears; Darby Shaffer
(Samantha Simpson), the crusading journalist, who compromises her principles, both personal and professional, when she writes a controversial article about a local celebrity and Milo Gephardt (Shawn Shillingford), the unwilling police informant and Frank's childhood friend, whose life is spiraling out of control due to the role he played in the shooting of a fellow former addict .
Frank Briggs may have vanished... but his legacy remains.
HERRINGS is a multiple award-winning dramatic web-series inspired by both true crime and political stories that have taken place in the City of Philadelphia as well as shows such as The Wire, The Chi and The Shield.
The purpose of this show is to introduce unique characters and stories you don't typically find on TV and create opportunities for talented artists looking to do innovative work while gaining exposure and experience.
We want HERRINGS to be a recognizable brand a la
High Maintenance and Awkward Black Girl, shows that are synonymous with high quality content in a
burgeoning medium that will soon be the primary source of audience consumption.
“This project serves as living proof that one can do anything that they set their mind to. With an intertwining storyline and a serious take on current events, HERRINGS was able to captivate a large audience with a miniscule budget, which was mostly financed out of pocket.” Despite numerous false starts, we just kept believing in it. Kept focusing on it. I kept watching the show in my head over and over and over again. Kept preparing. Kept planning. Stayed inspired. Practiced. Kept working with the actors to make it better. And I was thankful for the time that I was forced to wait. The show is better for it."
