New Short Series MULLIGAN To Premiere Worldwide on Facebook Starting March 17th
What happens when a golf-pro turned convict returns home to Pittsburgh looking for a second chance at life? The new highly anticipated short series MULLIGAN explores this theme and much more. This new Original Drama Series is created by Pittsburgh native Patrick Cannon, who stars in the series and also serves as the co-showrunner .
The official synopsis of the series reads as follows:
A disgraced, former golf prodigy Jack O'Mally returns home to work at his brother's Driving Range and Miniature Golf Course, where he must navigate the small-knit community that served as the catalyst for his successes and failures.
MULLIGAN had it's start with a small Indigogo campaign which was to help get the show off the ground of the pre-production phase. After raising well above the anticipated funds, filming began in October of 2018 in Pittsburgh, PA. Since then it has also captured a spot in the LA Film Festival, a huge accomplishment for a project of this size.
The new series will be available exclusively on Facebook starting on March 17th, with the pilot episode titled "Trajectories." MULLIGAN released its teaser trailer a few months back and has received over 72K views on Facebook since then. With the overwhelming amount of views from the trailer on Facebook the production decided to air the series right on Facebook. The series is one of the first shows to premiere and run episodes on the social media site, taking Facebook to a whole new level.
Ashley Kate Adams stars as Mona, the ex-girlfriend of Jack O'Malley (Patrick Cannon) who Jack is trying to win back after being in prison. Adams also served as producer on the series under her production company AKA Studio Productions.
The MULLIGAN pilot was filmed in Pittsburgh with an Independent crew of 50. It also stars Michael Sullivan, Tony Bingham, Hazel Leroy, Tracy Turner, Ian McIntosh, Makeda Duncan, Patrick Jordan (Southpaw), Daina Griffith (Dark Knight Rises), Jason McCune (The Outsiders), John Shepard (Quantum Leap), David Toole (Downward Dog), Siovhan Christensen (Downward Dog) and Missy Moreno.
