How it could be and how we get there.
Gateway: the City’s Reason is a poli-sci-fi television drama set in an American heartland city 50 years from now. It’s an “Indie TV” project – produced locally and distributed via the web. At first glance, Gateway: the City’s Reason can be described as a TV series produced in, and about, St. Louis. And it is. However, it is much more than that. It will be the launching pad (a story-content-platform) for content verticals that will deliver unique and pertinent content to the audiences who plug into the Gateway-TCR franchise. Advertisers interested in communicating with our audiences will be invited to purchase valuable “content adjacency” on the platform and within our vertical communications. In addition, Gateway creative teams – the same groups that produce the series – are available to create content and native advertising for our clients.
Stories, film and television can help people bridge the gap between what is now and what is possible. Gateway: the City’s Reason envisions a future with mostly positive outcomes — where good old American optimism touches everyone. That’s the stage on which Gateway stories take place. And we think it’s a stage that citizens should see more of today.
Our main goal is to tell good stories. That’s always been the goal of a good TV show. What is unique about Gateway-TCR is the sustainable stage upon which these stories will take place. Of course, there is one story arc that we’re most interested in exploring… how we get from today’s “new gilded age” to a more sustainable world in 2064. Could be quite a ride.
