Jim Henson’s Creature Shop™ brings the characters from Oscar’s Hotel for Fantastical Creatures to life as creator/director PJ Liguori (aka KickThePJ) transports the audience to a surreal fantasy universe. When hotel owner Oscar suddenly leaves on unexpected cosmic council business, his nephew Oliver becomes the new proprietor and his attempts to maintain order lead him to surreal adventures with its eccentric guests.
Chris Kendall stars with an ensemble guest cast featuring Anna Akana, Mitchell Davis, Jake Roper, Grace Helbig, Mamrie Hart, Hannah Hart, Dan Howell, Phil Lester, Felix Kjellberg (PewDiePie), Marzia Bisognin, Jack Howard, Dean Dobbs , Carrie Fletcher, Meghan Rienks, TomSka, and Andrew Ableson, as well as Patrick Stewart, Alfred Molina and Elliott Gould. Oscar’s Hotel is produced in association with The Jim Henson Company.
Sawyer Hartman’s The Parallax Theory is a six-part epic drama that follows Jonathan, a young physicist, who alone holds the knowledge of an imminent cataclysmic meteor strike. As he tirelessly warns the world of impending doom, he is ostracized by those who fear the truth, forcing him to choose between what may be a futile attempt to save humanity, or making the ultimate sacrifice for his family. The series is created and directed by Hartman, starring Vincent Cyr.
