Qaranteam is an interactive web series about working from home from ABC Interactive (The ABC Project, Infinitely Dinner Society, Picnic Party, Death and Coffee, The Unknown).
Meant to give us a chance to laugh at ourselves during these trying times, Quaranteam is part sitcom, part job you don’t want to get fired from, and all from your home. It’s the story of RFIDirect, and RFID solutions company that is facing going out of business amidst the COVID19 lockdown. The core leadership team is forced to ask YOU, and the rest of their “new hires” to help save the company through a series of tasks assigned during each week’s company-wide Zoom meeting and happy hour as well as throughout the week via the company’s slack.
This 6 week long journey starts with the launch of the company’s slack in April 3rd where “new hires” can interact with each other as well as a cast of characters:
- J. Elijah Cho (Halt and Catch Fire, Mr. Yunioshi) as CEO Duncan Donner
- Dasha Kittredge (Delusion, C(ovell), The Willows) as PR/Social Media Lead Julia “Jules” Jennings
- Annie Lesser (Death and Coffee, A(partment 8), C(ovell)) as Head of HR Sue Hall
- John Patrick Daly (Wood Boy Dog Fish, How I Became A Superhero) as Head of Accounts Ted Cruise
- Nikki Muller (Definition of Man, E(levator, Students, and Friends), 45 Milligrams) as Research Lead Penelope “Nel” James
- Jason Rosario (Definition of Man, 45 Milligrams) as IT/Security Benjamin “BJ” Perez
- Edward Salazar (E(levator, Students, and Friends)) as Office Manager Charles Foster
But the real action starts when weekly Zoom meetings begin April 10th, and continue every Friday through May 15th at 5:30PST/8:30EST. Zoom meetings guest star Keight Leighn (Snow Fridge, A(partment 8), Bedrumplai) as Leslie Hall, wife of Sue Hall.
