ABOUT FLOATERS: WATCH TRAILER
Outer space - filled with elite scientists, engineers, and air force pilots. But what happens when the rest of us schmucks get there? What happens when ordinary people can live in space as easily as astronauts? Welcome to Floaters a new 13-episode sci-fi comedy web series, exploring life in space for everyday folks with everyday problems. Season 1 follows a community of rag-tag space dwelling drifters, where the future is a lot like now, only worse.
MEET THE FLOATERS - Season 1 follows the inhabitants of Dymaxion City, a ramshackle settlement that orbits the earth. We meet Jess & Anthony with their typical couple issues, Blake & Morgan who serve as the neighborhood troublemakers, the officious Olive Redgrave, and the casually scientific Mark Darling – they're all discovering that life manages to carry on as usual, even in space.
Sometime in the near future, earthlings build a space elevator - a “stairway to heaven” - which reaches from the Earth’s surface 100 miles into space. In the process, an encampment of engineers, scientists, and laborers congregate at the top. What follows is a hodge-podge of dwellers setting out to try spacelife for themselves. Drifters, common citizens, adventurers and college students are all calling “space” home, and bringing their issues and problems from Earth.
