The series was created by director Steven Sprinkles and writer Stu Chait, and it follows “a group of disenchanted 20-somethings who, at the behest of a mysterious host, assemble a strange weekly meeting as an outlet for their unfulfilled urges,” the network said in a statement. “Dared by the group's host, each is challenged to complete a series of tasks. The participants soon find themselves going to places -- and lengths -- they never thought possible.”
"Pushing Twilight is an excellent representation of how IFC's open-source, user-generated Media Lab Studios gives aspiring filmmakers the opportunity to be rewarded with real-world experience and the resources to professionally produce their own series," IFC vice president of digital media Craig Parks said in a statement.
"We received hundreds of entries, and Pushing Twilight really stood out as an exceptionally creative series that embodies the essence of independent short-form content, and we're excited to showcase this production on IFC.com along with our other successful Web series,” he added.
