Hype, a web series drama written and directed by Holland Randolph Gallagher, executive produced by Brendan Bradley & Jigsaw Ensemble and presented by Runaway, is making its long-awaited premiere at The Carolina Theatre of Durham!
After a successful Kickstarter campaign in 2017, Hype was shot on location in Durham, NC.
Hype is a show about an exceedingly optimistic young man, Smiles, and his journey to buy the house back for his adolescent love, which gets him mixed up in the rap and startup worlds of Durham, NC.
The series has strong local roots. The cast, including Willie Raysor, Andie Morgenlander, Robert Dartez Wright, Leroy ‘Well$' Shingu, Zen ‘Zensofly' Stewart, Melvin Gray Jr., and crew, including cinematographer Bruce F. Cole who most recently shot a film ‘Jinn' that won awards at SXSW 2018, are based in the Triangle area. Additionally, the soundtrack is produced and scored by Gallagher with additional contributions from Well$, Ace Henderson, and Pat Junior, among others.
The event includes a screening of all five season one episodes of Hype, and then a Q&A with Holland and key cast and crew from the show!
