Douglas, MA -- (ReleaseWire) -- 09/23/2014 --The Indiegogo campaign for the new teen drama 5150 went live on September 5, 2014.
5150 is created and written/produced by Jennifer Anne Johnson and Executive Produced by Lionel Johnson (no relation). Jennifer wrote her first full-length screenplay when she was fifteen, after seeing Robert Rodriguez’s From Dusk Till Dawn for the first time. Lionel Johnson has worked in the Entertainment Industry for over ten years. He joins the 5150 Team as the Executive Producer helping to guide the Production on its proper course.
Following in the footsteps of shows like Gossip Girl, One Tree Hill, Charmed, Buffy The Vampire Slayer, and Veronica Mars, 5150 features snappy dialogue and strong female leads. It blends dark comedy with edgy drama and the relevant issues teens and young adults face today- issues like teen angst, sexual abuse, substance abuse, depression, suicide, and sexual identity- without making them feel like they are being preached at. “5150 will push the boundaries of Network television,” says creator Jennifer Anne Johnson. “It will be your new addiction.”
