‘Glimpse’ the Future Now

The first episode of Glimpse, a free short-form sci-fi anthology from Gunpowder & Sky and Futurism, debuted this morning on Facebook Watch.

Titled “Circuits,” the episode stars Stephanie Styles (Broadway’s Newsies) as an innocent girl who enters an underground world of cyborgs, electronic tattoos and body modifications. Carter Jenkins (Freeform’s Famous In Love) co-stars.

Seven additional weekly episodes of Glimpse will explore other individuals reckoning with “near future” technologies in such areas as childbirth, cooking, translation devices, robotic dogs and augmented reality.

The series cast list includes School of Rock’s Tony Cavalero and Ricardo Hurtado, The Hunger Games’ and True Detective’s Leven Rambin, and The Dark Knight Rises’ Tyler Flores.

Here are brief glimpses of all episodes:

After premiering at Facebook.com/WatchGlimpse, Glimpse episodes will also be available on Gunpowder & Sky’s new Roku channel DUSTx, as well as other Gunpowder & Sky and Futurism outlets.
