Audi and FX Networks have teamed up to create Untitled Jersey City Project a new experimental series presented as a work-in-progress television drama but with a decidedly cinematic feel. The eight mini episodes are fragments from a larger story that feels like a modern day film noir thriller. Each clip explores another facet of the story and answers some questions while leaving the viewer to wonder what will happen next.
Set amidst the fast-developing Jersey City waterfront, just across the river from Manhattan, the series showcases the beautiful contrasts of Jersey City with a sexy, stylized look. Directed by Daniel Minahan (True Blood, Game of Thrones), the series fits right at home on the FX Network with all the drama of murder, sex, revenge and intrigue that you’d expect.
