Katie Boland’s Long Story, Short web series to bow on KoldCast TV

The web series, written and co-created by the Canadian actor, will premiere Aug. 19 on the international indie television network.

Katie Boland’s Long Story, Short web series will launch on KoldCast TV in Canada and the U.S. on Aug. 19.

Boland wrote and stars in the series, which she co-created with Gail Harvey, who directs.

Long Story, Short follows three twenty-something women as they navigate drama and debauchery on the road to adulthood.

Shaftesbury in April picked up distribution rights to the 11 x 5-minute series.

Following its Aug. 19 premiere, a new episode will be posted every Monday on KoldCast, an international television network that distributes programming via its online hub.

The programming KoldCast licenses is largely created by indie producers and filmmakers. Audiences can access KoldCast content via OTT and mobile devices, connected/smart TVs and via individual broadcast and cable TV network partnerships.

Most KoldCast programming is monetized through 15- and 30-second automated ad spots, and pre-roll advertising revenue, the latter being shared with the content producers.

“From the masses of pitches and show submissions we receive each month, only a handful now make KoldCast’s lineup. Long Story, Short has earned its place by telling a fabulous story that everyone can relate to,” said KoldCast TV CEO David S. Samuels in a statement. “The show is replete with all the angst-ridden, post-adolescent woes and unrequited love that any juicy series needs, while presenting high caliber acting and production values often difficult to attain in a budget constrained web series world.”

Long Story, Short also stars Adam Butcher (Republic of Doyle), Tommie-Amber Pirie (Michael: Tuesdays and Thursdays), Lauren Collins (Degrassi) and Michael Seater (Bomb Girls, Life with Derek).
