Imagine a world in which robots replace human beings, taking over their jobs.
Some would say that’s already happening, but in this new video, we get a comical look at what could seriously turn into technological chaos. On the flipside, we also get a look at how a robot helps someone work through their existential crises.
Android Employed is the first scripted comedy from TELUS Original. The four-part series became available on TELUS Optik TV on Demand and online at androidemployed.com on July 29.
Filmed in Vancouver, Android Employed is created, directed and written by Jem Garrard, a four time Leo award-winning filmmaker with global experience. Garrard writes and directs narrative films, TV shows, and music videos for artists such as Ringo Starr and Linkin Park.
Jem is also an alumna of the 2015 TELUS STORYHIVE Digital Shorts edition. Her short film Unit Bryan was picked up by Telus and was the start of Android Employed.
The series stars Ryan Beil (iZombie), Sarah Canning (The Vampire Diaries), Andrea Bang (Kim’s Convenience), Sonja Bennett (Supernatural), Kalyn Miles, Dave Collette, Peter Benson, Veena Sood, Victor Dolhai, and Trevor Devall as the voice of the robot.
