According to information from Variety, producer Rob Weiss is working on a series called Hold On for Dear Life. The title refers to the currency HODL, which was born after a typo on a forum dedicated to Bitcoin (BTC). The currency refers to users who hold on to their cryptocurrencies over the long term until a currency’s price explodes.
Rob Weiss is best known for producing several successful sitcoms for HBO including, Entourage, Ballers, and How to Make it in America. Other producers behind the comedy series include Mark Pennell of Beacon Pictures, a company that produces films for Disney, Satoshi Nakamoto Productions, and the MAP Group.
“When I read the ‘Hold On for Dear Life’ pilot, I felt as if I had been transported into a fresh and unique universe where characters spoke about money in a whole new language. The world of currency is rapidly changing, and ‘Hold On for Dear Life’ will both illuminate and entertain at the same time.” Said Wess
The 10-episode series features Mel, a young woman who decides to launch a token in honor of her lost friend, Aveer. To carry out her project, she is accompanied by a team composed of an anarchist with a passion for cryptocurrencies, a Lamborghini lover, and a purist of open source technologies. They’ll have to take on the “centralized powers in a mind-blowing and inspiring journey”.
Several big names in the cryptocurrency industry will make a brief appearance in the series. This is the case with famous investors Tim Draper and Jeremy Gardner.
The 10-episode comedy series is also the first to tokenize a part of its net earnings, and the FDL token (For Dear Life) is currently accessible on Securitize’s online marketplace as an ERC20 security token. The FDL token, which is based on Ethereum and uses smart contracts as its foundation, enables owners to receive pro-rata net earnings from the series straight into their digital wallets.
