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. Gateway: the City’s Reason is a poli-sci-fi television drama that envisions a future with mostly positive outcomes — one 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.
