Pale Blue Light is a television drama series that centers on a hip-hop record company called Pale Blue Light Records. The series will focus on the everyday lives of those who work at Pale Blue Light Records -- at times a to-scale representation of the highly commercial industry as a whole, at others an intentional counterpoint -- as the show's stars struggle to make ends meet while also trying to raise hip hop as an art back to the days of its genesis.

This half-hour/ hour program deals with the drama and lifestyle that is hip hop, offering a behind-the-scenes of the hip hop industry and culture: the shady record deals; the struggles and squabbles defacing the business; the conflicts between labels; the video shoot and what happens when the cameras stop rolling; entanglements between artists and their fans; the myths of the hip-hop industry; radio stations and TV networks and how a song gets air-play; the violence that plagues the industry; individual conflicts, mudslinging and power-tripping and the chain of unexpected incidents and mysterious events that reconstitutes Pale Blue Light Records as one of the hottest record companies in New York.

Our show directly targets the largest built-in television audience in the world -- the "Hip Hop Nation." Cameo appearances by real hip-hop artists will blur the line between fantasy and reality.

Perhaps the best way to describe this series would be a cross between Entourage and The Wire, where you experience life in the fast lane with expensive cars and mansions and the gritty thug-life of crime and disloyalty, but Pale Blue Light will have a distinctive advantage in marketing over these other successful shows: the lingua franca that is hip hop. This show will be marketed around the world, because hip hop is in Europe, Japan, South America, Canada, Africa, Australia, the Caribbean, etc. The storylines will go beyond the coasts and midlands of America to the banlieues of Paris, the favelas of Brazil or the boroughs of South London, where the new breeds of hip-hop are evolving.

The first season is slated for production in fall 2012.
