Tandon Productions launches seventh original podcast: That Vampire Show
Tandon Productions, a Los Angeles based audio production company, focused on bringing new voices to the multi-media landscape, announces their newest audio fiction podcast, That Vampire Show.
The full cast production follows Kat Wright (Lauren Grace Thompson), a high school senior and avid fan fiction writer, as she wins a fan fiction contest for her favorite TV show, “Bloodlines.” But, when part of the prize involves meeting the creator, Warren Young (Alex Bankier), things go terribly wrong. The experience derails Kat’s senior year and changes the future of “Bloodlines” forever.
The first season is made up of 10 full-length episodes, ranging between 30-40 minutes each, that follow Kat and Warren on their high speed collision course, and the aftermath that follows.
The season also includes 9 mini-episodes, each about 15 minutes in length, of an in-universe talk show called “Behind The Screams.” Hosted by Jocelyn Mathers (Madison Garris), each episode gives a glimpse into the TV show within the podcast, and the storylines that Kat and Warren are battling over. Guests on the show include writers, actors, and
In addition to the in-feed episodes, That Vampire Show includes a unique, immersive storytelling experience for listeners. As the show progresses, listeners can interact with in-character accounts on Twitter, Tumblr, and Archive Of Our Own. Because our story centers on a character who engages in online fan behavior, we’ve created an online footprint for her - Kat can be found on Twitter (@9lives6ftunder), Tumblr (9lives6ftunder.tumblr.com), and Archive Of Our Own, reacting in real time to the events of the episode, and creating additional content that eagle eared listeners can dive into in between episodes. Throughout the release of the season, Kat’s profiles will be alive and well -- and listeners who dive in to this part of the storytelling may even find other characters in this world, creating art, playlists, and blogging throughout. This multi-platform experience really allows the listener to become fully immersed in these characters, and create a deep attachment with the storyline, even when they’re all caught up and waiting for a new episode to drop.
The series was created by Marissa Tandon (Austin Film Festival recognized writer of Super Ordinary, The Sword & The Stoner, His Royal Fakin’ Highness), and includes episodes written by Gabriel Urbina (Webby Award nominated writer of Wolf 359, Zero Hours, and Unseen), Alex Whisenhunt (His Royal Fakin’ Highness, Life on Pause), Cassidy Lu Jones, Matthew Riccardi, and Newton Schottelkotte. “That Vampire Show” marks the audio drama debut of Cassidy Lu Jones and Matthew Riccardi. Casting was by Kim Roth, and the sound team for the first season included lead sound designer Alexandra Tandon (Life On Pause) and Newton Schottelkotte.
The cast includes Lauren Grace Thompson (Kat Wright), Alex Bankier (Warren Young), Gabrielle Adner (Allie Samuels), Dallis Seeker (Cameron Jones & Luther), Megan Carter (Mina Jacobs), Torian Brackett (Freddy Graves & Callum Rainier), Casterline Villar (Lucy Warringer & Bex Rainier), Connor Brannigan (Brad), Elizabeth Von Isser (Sharon Wright), Joe Kearney (Nick Wright), Madison Garris (Jocelyn Mathers), Brendan McGrady (Ed Philips), Eva Kantor (Dani Williams) and Justin Schaffner (Chase).
