T.A.S.K.

Lightning Rod! Onyx! Glitch! Lady Baskerville! You may not know these names now – but creators Damion Gonzales, Zak Farmer, and Sean Izaakse are determined that you soon will. Together they’ve combined their talents to create T.A.S.K., “an animated superhero action adventure series set in our truly global reality.” Though still in the early stages, things for T.A.S.K. are heating up, and I spoke to Damion about what makes this project truly unique.

WATSON & HOLMES is a modern urban take on the tales of “Sherlock Holmes” by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.  Re-envisioning Sherlock Holmes and Dr John Watson as African Americans and taking place in New York City’s famous Harlem district, the stories can go in fresh and new directions never traveled before.

This is also a series in which Holmes is no longer the central character as he shares equal spotlight with Watson as emphasized by the title.  In this take of the classic, Jon Watson is a former para-jumper for the US Air Force returning from Afghanistan, He is currently working in inner-city clinic helping the less fortunate while trying to pay his debts after a hard divorce. Holmes is a private investigator who used to work as a programmer in a internet start-up that went belly-up. Consequently his career was ruined as a result of it.  He then decided to become a PI.
