Two niche subscription streamers, Passionflix and AfroLife, have announced upcoming originals.
Passionflix, a home for romance movies, is adapting K. Bromberg’s steamy book series Driven for a summer premiere. Set in the world of professional race car driving, the film stars Olivia Applegate as “a resilient girl with a tragic past and a heart of gold” who falls in love with a “hot bad boy athlete” (Casey Deidrick). Passionflix co-founder Joany Kane wrote the book adaption, with Passionflix co-creator/CEO Tosca Musk directing.
AfroLife, which provides “curated African American, Afro-Latino, Afro-European and African content,” has picked up The Incredible Life of Darrell from Stage 13. The show’s creator Darrell Lake stars in this coming-of-age comedy. The plot? “A real job is just so…boring when all you want to do is build space equipment.”
An annual subscription to AfroLife, set to launch this month, currently costs $59.70, said to be 50% off the regular price. For more info, visit afrolife.tv.
