WATCH: Hulu Sneak Preview “Zen Dog” and Behind the Scenes Short "Zen Dog: On the Road" with Q&A
Mud (Kyle Gallner) has been trapped in his daily routine for a long time. He runs a struggling virtual reality startup that promises to transport users to exotic locations from the comfort of their homes. Plagued by recurring nightmares of a stranger’s suicide, Mud has a difficult time coping with his monotonous existence.

One day, his eccentric cousin Dwayne (Adam Herschman) shows up at his doorstep, disturbing the comforting pattern Mud has created for himself. Dwayne introduces Mud to the power of lucid dreaming with the hopes that it will quell his nightmares. Thus Mud dreams himself into a road trip across America in a psychedelic Volkswagen. Finding himself experiencing a life without the usual comforts and meeting colourful characters, he starts discovering more than he initially bargained for.

In recent years, many films have dealt with how modern urban life gets alienating, but few have achieved the profound effect of Zen Dog. Writer / Director Rick Darge deftly weaves together his visuals, sounds, touching performances and the words of late philosopher Alan Watts in service of a beautiful, inspiring tale. Using real locations and local crew spanning across the entire United States, the unique production of Zen Dog harkens back to the days of modernist American filmmaking that captured reality in its purest form.

WATCH: "Adoptable" The Digital Series with Creator, Scott Lowell
ADOPTABLE! is an awkward and bittersweet comic television series written by and starring Scott Lowell loosely based on his own experiences searching for his birth parents back in the late ’90’s. It is presented as a documentary being directed by Jennifer Lim (Linda Park of TV’s “Enterprise” & “Crash”) which follows successful actor and adult adoptee Scott Fishman (Lowell) of the hit TV show “Cops & Bottoms” in which he co-stars with Noah Wyle (Noah Wyle as a fictionalized version of himself).  Bowing somewhat to pressure from his fiancé, Lisa Crane (Emily Swallow, “The Mentalist”, “Monday Mornings”) and their therapist Bob Raskin (Jim O’Heir of “Parks and Recreation”) as well as his own desire to know himself a bit better before getting married and starting a family, Fishman embarks on the journey of seeking out his birth parents.  He is aided along the way by an intermediary named Mary Elizabeths played by multi-Emmy Award® winner Sharon Gless (“Cagney & Lacey”, “Burn Notice”, “Queer as Folk”).
