On the Edge

<i>On the Edge</i> is a 13x one hour drama series. Pindan Media is a small town communications and entertainment company representing a local melting pot of nationalities. Minority groups are the driving force behind Pindan. But on a shoe string budget, too many egos and not enough hours in the day, obstacles abound. Passions and tempers run high. The staff wade their way through the murkiness of politics and dark secrets to define their own stories with a real edge to them. <i>On the Edge</i> takes you behind the television screens and radio sets revealing the underbelly of this industry's glossy facade, giving everyone a giddy, dramatic and sometimes hilarious ride.<p>
