What is Social Medium?
Born as a series of tweets by show’s creator Brian Newlin, “Social Medium” focuses on the misadventures of Beatrix Beckett as she, her best friend Zola and boyfriend Fallon attempt to solve paranormal internet mysteries using Beatrix’s amazing online psychic abilities.
On a shoe string budget Brian teamed up with Tara Jayn, the show’s Executive Producer and “Beatrix Beckett,” to put together 16 episodes as an example of the show’s potential. These episodes cover the origin story of Beatrix and have already gained the show a following, entry into web festivals and a little bit of online media.
