Los Angeles, CA, April 06, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- Bam!PRODUCED., LLC is proud to announce that Bullets won Outstanding Producing in a Dramatic Series and Best Drama at the Los Angeles Web Festival. A remastered version of episodes 1 through 4 of the acclaimed web series, Bullets, is now available to be viewed at www.BulletsTV.com. New episodes are released on Mondays and episode 5 will premiere at the Hollyweb Festival April 12 - 14. The series follows two bank employees, Hugo Roosa (Clint Keepin) and Mark Metzgar (Zach Silverman), who concoct a devious plan to steal from the bank where they both work to compete in an underground poker tournament. Little do they know that the money they steal is owed to a money launderer working for Manny Sanco (Ed Morrone), the same mafia kingpin running the poker game. Mark and Hugo are forced to win the tournament or lose everything they ever loved.
A six-episode digital series, Bullets feels real to life with a cast easily relatable to the audience. Thematically organized around the game Texas Hold’em, the show seeks to reveal a larger, more complex portrait of the underground world of poker and the social layering of the people behind the actions.
Over the past few months, Bullets creators, Ty Leisher and Alexis Edelman, have learned the series was the number one watched show on JTS.TV, a premium IPTV network. Additionally, the series placed in the top 10% of NexTv's Indie Film and Web Series Competition , landing them a spot as a semi-finalist. Bullets was an Official Selection at the Hollyweb Festival and now can add wins at the LA Web Festival to its list of accolades.
With fan interest growing, Bullets now has over 10k views on their YouTube channel, with a goal to reach 50k per episode. "Without a fan base, it is hard for us to justify creating a Season 2, no matter how much we want to develop it," says producer, Alexis Edelman, "but there is no question that we are proud of our accomplishments and will continue to push as hard as we can until we reach our goal. If the world wants a Season 2, they will show us by watching and sharing our story." Bullets is already starting to reach the online poker community through news outlets and blog sites and is sponsored by Grinder Gear Clothing and Bustout Poker Apparel, owned by Jeff Griffith.
The show features a cameo from Poker Pro Ali Eslami in addition to talented cast including Rudy Casillas, Jim Freivogel, Somya von Eames, Laura Saggers, Sam Proof, Denis O'Mahoney, Omar Hussein, Juan Gabriel Reynoso, Jim Leisher, Dave Baez, Brian Majestic, Maxwell Glick, and Jamie Fishback.
