‘The Circuit’ Sci-fi Anthology Series Has Quite A Cast

There is a very interesting project gaining steam on Kickstarter right now called The Circuit: Urbiessa that is described as “a film quality sci-fi anthology series, where fans, celebrities, and professional filmmakers work together”. It involves 10 stories set in the city of Urbiessa—each focusing on a different sub-genre. The seemingly unrelated episodes will come together as part of a “deeper story line”. What’s more, you will probably recognize quite a few of the names attached to the project.

“The Circuit” is like “Black Mirror” or “The Twilight Zone” except each seemingly unrelated episode is a piece of a deeper story line.

Each episode takes place in the enormous city of ‘Urbiessa’, a cross between “Metropolis” and “Gotham” and will concentrate on a specific sub-genre such as Sci-Fi Action, Sci-Fi Mystery, etc…

These stories are in the capable hands of 10 amazing directors, a group of talented star actors, a professional crew, and of course the incredible FANS that will collaborate and work side by side with us to energize each story.

The current cast:

  • Walter Koenig (Star Trek)
  • Tim Russ (Star Trek: Voyager)
  • Gigi Edgley (Farscape)
  • Robert Beltran (Star Trek: Voyager)
  • Armin Shimerman (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine)
