Week #1 Show Teaser Action Zeroes

Synopsis

When an ongoing strike by the Stuntmen Association threatens to halt production on a big budget action film, the producers turn to a washed out action star to assemble the "best" available talent to complete the film.

Set in the cultural melting pot of Montreal, ''Action Zeroes'' tells the story of unlikely stuntmen working on the next big action hit. Under the premise of a documentary film crew following the characters around for the film's eventual DVD special features; it is both a love letter to action filmmaking and a truly original comedy about underdogs, friendship and team work. ''Action Zeroes'' will leave you laughing and pumped full of adrenaline!
