A 10-part scripted comedy series on cryptocurrency is on the cards. The first crypto-based TV show called HODL will be directed by Hollywood film writer and producer Rob Weiss.
The series is executive produced by Beacon Pictures’ Mark Pennell, Satoshi Nakamoto Productions and the MAP Group. A report in Variety indicates the project, Hold on To Dear Life (HODL), will avoid Bitcoin or Ethereum and focus on non-fungible tokens, the new kid on the block. Rob Weiss will produce and direct all the episodes of HODL, which is also a famous phrase in the crypto sphere.
Before they can make Mel’s vision a reality
The series, according to reports, will tell the encounters of Mel, a young tech founder who “launches a token named after her best friend Aveer (who disappeared)’. The plot will involve Mel and her buddies overcoming enemies comprising centralized powers and “Fear, Uncertainty and Doubt” before they can make Mel’s vision for the Aveer a reality.
Part of the cast will be Elvis the crypto-anarchist, Bear the Lambo-bro, DiNo the digital nomad, Liberty the opensource purist, and Satoshi. This essentially means that all the crypto stereotypes imaginable. Talking about the project, Bob Weiss said:
“When I read the Hold On for Dear Life pilot, I felt as if I had been transported into a fresh and unique universe where characters spoke about money in a whole new language […] the world of currency is rapidly changing, and Hold On for Dear Life will both illuminate and entertain at the same time.”
Encourage investors to hold on to their digital assets
HODL is also a trailblazer of sorts since it will tokenize part of its earnings via its own token. The token will be converted into an Ethereum ERC-20 security token called FDL (For Dear Life).
The report indicated that FDL buyers could receive pro-rata net profits from the TV series. The producers of the series will also be able to mint NFTs on the issues surrounding the show. The report didn’t give the more delicate details or deadlines regarding the launch date.
The series producer Rob Weiss is a big name in Hollywood. He has been a three Emmy Award nominee for the drama TV series Entourage. The producer aims to make the TV series HODL a leading investing strategy. He hopes to encourage investors to hold on to their digital assets instead of selling them at throw-away prices.
