Peacekeepers

What would you do if you were getting texts from God?

Alana’s on 24-hour call to a boss who sends her on urgent missions to narrowly avert intimate disasters – a car crash, a leap from the Queensboro Bridge, a slip into the lion pit at the Bronx Zoo.

She works for a Peacekeeper, and she’s one of dozens who crisscross the city to save lives. And her texting boss? The urban legends and her friend Sophie insist that it’s God, but Alana has her doubts.

If the Peacekeeper she works for IS actually God with an iPhone, why the hell does he need a bunch of twentysomethings to help him divinely intervene?

Why now? Why can't they save everybody?
It's a bit of a s**tstorm, and it's becoming clear that even a Peacekeeper has enemies.

Director Statement

Maria and I set out, as huge fans of "Doctor Who," "Sherlock," and "Buffy," to make a show with a strong female lead, LGBT characters, and a killer sci-fi story (that relied on the writing rather than an enormous budget). We've both been playing the webseries game for a while and want to up the bar-- to show that there's still a market for passion projects made for a few thousand dollars that translate as well as the content networks are making for millions of dollars.
