“Red Sleep” Trailer

“Everything has side effects. Mine are just a little more… severe.”

An escaped prison inmate makes a deal with a U.S. military drug experiment in exchange for his freedom. After taking on a new identity in Los Angeles, the side effects from the drug and his past catch up with him. [RED SLEEP Trailer from Andre Welsh on Vimeo.]

Here is a first-look trailer of new television series Red Sleep, directed by Andre Welsh and starring Chioke Jelani Clanton, Ron Kaell, Jessica Sonneborn, and Don Stark. The premise alone is pretty interesting – the show’s themes delve into the United States’ long and harrowing history of medical experimentation on prisoners and people of color – and the above trailer showcases quite a few dramatic moments.

Red Sleep premieres later this fall. You can keep up with updates on the show by “liking” their Facebook page.
