The first two episodes (or is it webisodes) of Rosario Dawson‘s new web series, Gemini Division, are now online. It’s amazing what a talented/professional actress brings to the table. I have yet to really get involved with a web series the way I have television shows, partly because the quality of product is just so much lower. I’ve also found a problem with shows that move to slowly or try to play it off as the story is 100% real, which usually results in a mockumentary-level performance. While Gemini Division is shot and told through a female first-person confessional, like other popular web series (LonelyGirl), it is also presented in a more cinematic fashion.

Comprised of 50 three-minute episodes, the sci-fi thriller is set “five minutes in the future” about a New York City detective.
Anna Diaz (Dawson), who realizes her fiance isn’t everything she thought he was. And the Gemini Division is an organization that has been formed to bring together a group of “renegade sims”, that were created for the Iraq war, but all of a sudden went AWOL and are rumored to be forming a secret terrorist cell. Much of the footage is shot on green screen, transporting the actors to locations and places they otherwise couldn’t afford. Truth is, they plan to shoot 150 minutes worth of content for only $1.75 million. You can check out the first two episodes on GeminiDivision.com or embedded below:
