It’s been five years since actress, filmmaker and producer Janell Smith expanded her Iron Dragon TV brand into streaming – prior to then asserting the local fandom in Austin, Texas with the annual Iron Dragon TV Action Fest. That event lit an immersive spark last year with the presence of actor and action star Tak Sakaguchi, and now Smith is stepping up the Iron Dragon TV brand even further in several areas, including original content production with director Kelly Riot’s supernatural action thriller miniseries, Joaquin.
Actor and series creator Stefan Molina (Fine Lines) leads the series which signals the launch of Smith’s Iron Dragon Productions this year. Molina plays Joaquin Quintanilla, a lone, afflicted demon hunter guided by his newly-appointed angelic observer. During a seemingly routine exorcism, Joaquin stumbles upon a young girl imbued with powers that have marked her for death by agents from both Heaven and Hell, as well as Joaquin’s clandestined former mentors, the Order. Though he’s become her reluctant guardian and protector, Joaquin will soon be forced to make a decision that could have far reaching and catastrophic consequences as the fate of the world rests in the young girl’s hands.
Molina stars from a script by Ali Brown, and is joined by a cast that includes Paulina Chavez, Carlos Carrera and Anna Carvalho with a premiere date set for June 5 on the Iron Dragon TV app.
There’s also more coming from Smith’s corner with the upcoming launch of the IDTV Action Network, complete with a variety of projects and content. More information on these will take shape in due time while the official Iron Dragon TV fanpage is all the more worth following.
