Press Release (April 1, 2015)

GLASS HALF PRODUCTIONS ANNOUNCES THAT ACTORS WITH ST. LOUIS CONNECTIONS — JOHN GOODMAN, JON HAMM, EVAN PETERS, MARSHA MASON AND JENNA FISCHER — WILL APPEAR IN UPCOMING EPISODES OF GATEWAY-TCR, THE POLI-SCI-FI INDIE TV SERIES BEING PRODUCED IN ST. LOUIS.

aprilgoodman300hST. LOUIS, MO (April 1, 2015) — Glass Half Productions  announced that John Goodman star of Roseanne, The Big Lebowski, Argo, Alpha House, Raising Arizona, The Flintstones and many more, will reprise his “Revenge” role as Coach Harris in a Gateway-TCR episode about Ayn Rand influenced politicians, novelists, philosophers, playwrights, and screenwriters, who will then still be known as “nerds.”

apriljohnhamm300hJon Hamm, of Mad Men fame, will appear in another Gateway-TCR episode as a man in search of the meaning of advertising 50 years from now. It’s a time when big data, sensor implants, the internet of things, the internet of everything and the singularity all combine to blur marketing content from reality. But as part of Hamm’s contract, his character will clearly still be a fan of the 2064 Cardinals.

Marsha Mason will play the lovable landlord of actors, and the owner of numerous apartment buildings, in the vibrant Grand Center District of 2064 Gateway.

aprilpamtheofficejpg300hJenna Fischer will play the owner of a successful and sustainable paper and office supply company even though print will be “just about all the way” dead in 2064.

Evan Peters will play a teenage outcast with superhuman skills. He can run so fast that he doesn’t need a bridge to cross the Mississippi which comes in handy during rush hours. However, to his character’s great disappointment, St. Louis seems to move too slow — even in 2064.

Vincent Price will make a holographic comeback as a futuristic zombie slayer, and a Phyllis Diller hologram will play his hilarious wife. Diller’s character also manages a night club in the rejuvenated and booming Gaslight Square neighborhood.

The Gateway-TCR writing team was thrilled to hear that a Tennessee Williams hologram has agreed to do a couple of scripts: one about mass transit and the other about zoological statuary.

T.S. Eliot has been named named poet laureate of the series. His hologram commented, “April is still the cruelest month, even in 2064.”

From all the Gateway-TCR team we wish you and uncruel April and a happy April Fools Day 2015!

We hope you’ll watch our St. Louis-based cast, even if the above stars have to pull out for personal, financial or technical reasons. Gateway-TCR is a unique St. Louis entertainment startup employing local artists, actors, writers, producers, directors, and production & promotion professionals to produce a TV series about the future of Gateway. The series will be distributed via the web and other internet-based outlets.

Scripting and production is now underway in St. Louis.
