John Connor [Cathode Ray Mission 04.22.17] scifi horror thriller

Screen legends Robert Davi (Die Hard) and Julie Benz (Training Day) have joined the sprawling cast of Dark/Web as guest stars in the upcoming series from Felt Films.

Davi, who has appeared in over 100 films in his career, plays an ethically challenged doctor in the episode, “Transplant”, written and directed by Mario Miscione (“The Vault”) from a story by Tim Nardelli. The episode centers on a terminally ill man in need of a heart transplant. When time runs out, he turns to black market organ sales on the deep web run by an ethically challenged doctor (Davi); the heart saves his life, but the dark side effects that come with it lead to a search for it’s true owner.

Julie Benz will appear in the episode "Rideshare", which is described by writer/director Boman Modine as "a post-modern serial killer origin story centered around an Uber-esque ride sharing service."

About the Show:
Each episode of Dark/Web explores themes related to the internet and the dangers present in the murky, unexplained layers of the web. Paranoia, isolation, vanity, loss of identity, the viral nature of ideas and social media pressures are just a few of the subjects the show tackles.

Socially, the Internet is as unifying and divisive as it’s ever been; only now, when the entire world is connected, it’s never been harder to unplug.

Also joining the cast is Hayley Marie Norman (“iZombie”), Dora Madison (“Friday Night Lights”, “Dexter”) Griffin Freeman (“Atlanta”, “Walking Dead”) Cole Bernstein (“Secrets and Lies”), Duane Shepard Sr. (“American Crime Story”), Amin El Gamal (“Prison Break: Resurrection”), and Cameron Cruz (CHiPs).

They star in the segment, “Viral”, written and directed by showrunner Michael Nardelli. It stars Madison as a college freshman and aspiring screenwriter new to the big city and looking for permanence in a world of ephemeral tweets and “snaps.” She soon regrets the lasting impression she’s made when, after sleeping with campus golden boy (Freeman), rumors abound across social media suggesting she's contracted a horrific STD. As the news goes "viral," her symptoms worsen.

The eight-part anthology series combines a serialized narrative with stand-alone sci-fi/thriller segments that tackle the dangers of a totally connected world. It recently wrapped production and will be shopped to buyers this summer.

Dark/Web is the brainchild of brothers Michael and Tim Nardelli, and Mario Miscione; creators of the cult hit Circle, which was purchased for distribution by Netflix last year.

Previously announced cast includes Gabriel Luna (“Agents of Shield”), “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” alum Nicholas Brendan and Clare Kramer, along with Hannah Marks (“Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency”), Zelda Williams (daughter of Robin Williams), and “Sully” alums Molly Hagan and Graham Sibley.

Cassi Thomson (“Big Love”), Brian Elerding (“Mad Men”) Brandon Scott, Siobhan Fallon Hogan (“Wayward Pines”) Michael Nardelli, and Shannon Collins (“Inherent Vice”, ”The Punisher: Dirty Laundry”) also appear in the show.
