‘Kickstarted’ web series Jess Archer Versus is now available on Amazon Prime.
The series, which is written, directed, and created by Amy Taylor and financed via Kickstarter, started as Taylor’s thesis film at the Ohio University School of Film.
It stars Emily Williams as teenage detective Jess Archer who, with best friend Chase Pollar played by Stefan Kumor, “works as a detective-for-hire for any of her fellow high school students who find themselves in a tight spot.”
The entire first season of the series is viewable on Amazon Prime as two combined 21-minute episodes.
You can also see the season in its original form – eight short episodes – for free on YouTube.
Here’s the first five-minute episode, which introduces a mystery involving “star lacrosse player Troy” who is “accused of selling the answers to the mid-term exams”:
