Over the weekend, Mission District residents began noticing odd paper flyers posted on posts around the neighborhood.
According to the flyers (and a Craigslist post), a drama meant for television called “94110” is in the works that will center around “six leading technology executives living, learning, and loving together in San Francisco’s Mission District, 94110.”
However, though this sounds like a Tech Crunch version of “Friends”, it’s definitely not. It sounds like the show will attempt to capture “The Mission’s new reality” as a “Mark Zuckerberg fan fiction,” as the show’s producer told Uptown Almanac. We assume that means astronomical rent prices, dwindling independent businesses, and a tense city climate when it comes to the aforementioned issues.
However, just because a thing exists doesn’t mean it will gain traction (just ask anyone trying to promote a new app). As they told CBS SF, the show is currently searching for “seed and angel investors right now.”
Nevertheless, the show is looking to cast the roles, regardless of the gender divide trope currently plaguing the tech world. In their statement, they write that “each role will be cast with no preference toward age, race, or gender.” Fair, but completely inaccurate?
If you think you have what it takes to cut it in the tech biz (at least fictionally), head to the casting call May 16 and 17 from 11:00 AM – 5:30 PM in the SFAQ [PROJECT} SPACE at 449 O’Farrell Street in San Francisco. Get more information here.
