…It’s Movie Monday: Trouble in Boro Olympus?

Trouble in Boro Olympus is a short form TV pilot for The Triboro, an episodic one hour dramatic series about a group of youth in The Triboro (Olympus, Black Mountain & White Valley) that join forces and stand up to the ring of corruption that has taken control of their towns.

It’s not that I’m pro youth gambling or anything. It’s just that sometimes I wonder what the motivation behind a campaign like this is exactly.
