‘Graveyard’ Season Two Launches
October 19, 2012 by Andrew Schneider
The Chicago-produced web series “Graveyard,” began its second season this week with the release of its first of 13 episodes online at thegraveyardshow.com.
The series, directed by Ron Lazzeretti and starring David Pasequsi as a security guard and Christian Stolte as a janitor on the graveyard shift at an office building, had a first season run of 13 episodes online only last year. It’s produced by Eduardo Amaya’s 59 Films.
“We’re continuing with the antics of the night and the janitor,” Amaya says. “These two characters try to entertain each other throughout the night so that they don’t die of boredom.”
The show’s description reads: While the rest of the world sleeps, Pete the Custodian and Damon the Security Guard share late-night revelations, epiphanies, confessions, lies and whatever else they can can think of to keep from dying of boredom before the sun comes up. This is "Graveyard," a series in miniature.
Amaya says the cast and crew were energized by the first season and are looking forward to a great run in the second.
“There was a lot of momentum,” Amaya says. “We got a lot of great feedback and with these web series, it’s a work in progress, they develop virally. You try to get them out there to your family and friends and hope that they catch on.”
And, Amaya says, it does seem to be catching.
“We’re not making huge numbers, but it’s starting to build a little momentum,” he says. “Whenever get some publicity, people check out and we get more subscriptions.”
The entire second season has been shot and most of it is finished. They currently plan to release a new episode every two weeks.
“Beyond this season,” Amaya says, “we’ll see what happens.”
