Clara Aranovich's Series Tantalum Premieres at the 2018 Tribeca Film Festival

Another great series debuting at the 2018 Tribeca Film Festival was the series entitled Tantalum.  The premise of the story is simply a man attempting to jump off a bridge in Detroit is saved by a mysterious woman. The plot seems simple enough, but there is so much more.  

Actress Susan Deming, Director Clara Aranovich, and Marcus Henderson

The series is created by Clara Aranovich and developed and produced by Adaptive Studios.  Clara is a writer-director who was born in Palo Alto, California. She attended Dartmouth College for Literature/Creative Writing and got an MFA from USC's School of Cinematic Arts in Writing/Directing. She grew up going to the Stanford Theater and wanted to be a filmmaker from an early age thanks to the tutelage of her older brother. With the series Tantalum, it is definitely apparent that she found her calling.


Tantalum follows Colton, played by actor Marcus Henderson, a 30-something tech mogul who finds himself contemplating his suicide. As he stands feet on the edge of a Detroit bridge, his plan to end his own life is derailed by Evie, played by Susan Deming, a middle-aged woman who gleefully climbs up beside him-- may someone be hurting as much as he is? We follow this odd pair throughout the night — one person wishing to take his own life, the other having hers slowly taken. From muggings to near-arrests, from betrayals to bonding, this unlikely duo are drawn to each other, but for a reason neither can pinpoint. Are they trying to save themselves or each other? One thing is for sure, not everything is as it seems.

This series is one to keep the audience guessing and wanting more after each episode.

      Not yet.  They are shopping for that at Tribeca.  It would so be a great streaming series.  It's good so I know they will have people interested.

        That's awesome. The more great content out there, the better! Does it seem like a good fit for Netflix?
