In addition to this, the clip also comes in light of a bold effort by Chris and Haile to cement the show’s potential by bring it to television for more broader and episodic storytelling, which they revealed in a recent fan Q and A video they hosted this week. “…We figured we’d aim for the stars on this guy, (or) scale back to web if need be.” Chris says. “But we are trying to take this series to television, and that is why this process has been a slow one-because it’s never fast getting anything to TV in general, but we are…we’re trekking very hard trying to get that.” This is a pretty important announcement, especially for anyone who has been around for more than ten years enjoying the inspired action shorts posted online by earlier stunt teams and independent film groups such as Zero Gravity, The Stunt People, Whirlwind Action, Montanick Pictures, Jabronie Pictures and Team FistyleZ to name a few.
For now though, with the choice being up to the studio lucky enough to grab onto the fine gems that Thousand Pounds Action Company has to offer, one can only hope.
Clansmen live their lives perpetually looking over their shoulder, wary of constant threats from friend and foe alike. A solitary and, at times, harrowing existence that takes its toll on the men and women within the clan. For the youngest Eagle son, Baruti, this lifestyle was one that he could no longer stand.
7 years prior, the Eagle runaway was betrayed and deeply hurt by his older brother Samson. This betrayal resulted in the loss of a very important soul, Baruti’s motherly guardian. Since that day, Baruti has traveled the world looking for who he “really” is and has fought with coming to terms with his loss.
In present day, upon hearing the sudden news of his Father’s assassination, Baruti agrees to reunite with the people he once called “family”. Baruti’s return could mean several things to his older brother Samson: forgiveness due to a new found threat from an unknown common enemy….or perfect timing to exact his revenge for past wrongs. Believing in their age old saying, “Fighting eagles tend to both fall…” Samson reassures himself and agrees to meet Baruti to confirm what his true intentions are…
