Off Campus to air on CW Philly Oct. 26
October 15, 2013 — Philadelphia’s CW Philly 57 will air the third and fourth episode of our original student-produced sitcom TV series Off Campus on Saturday, Oct. 26 from midnight through 1 a.m.
The third episode of Off Campus finds the roommates’ lives disrupted by strange doings in a neighbor’s apartment. In the fourth episode, tensions rise when one of the roommates’ former flings unexpectedly “moves back in.” In early September, Off Campus’ fourth episode won the Mid-Atlantic chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences’ (NATAS) College Production Award of Excellence this past Saturday in the “Outstanding College Long Form Fiction Programming” category. The "Crystal Pillar" award was presented to six of our graduating Film & Video and TV Production students at the Mid-Atlantic Emmy ceremonies. It was the second such award for Off Campus in the last three years, previously earning an NATAS award for “Outstanding Achievement in a Student Production” in 2011 and a nomination in 2012 for “College Production–Arts and Entertainment/Cultural Affairs.” CW Philly 57 previously picked up Off Campus in 2011.
The story of recent college graduates living in an off campus house in Philadelphia, Off Campus is a lighthearted and honest look at the confusing world that America’s young people face in today’s turbulent economic times, starring professional actors Kat Catanakis, Jamie Kerezsi, Chris Ready, Jay Robin and Tom Saporito.
Producer and director Andrew Catania and supervising producer Laurel Chadwick, both 2012 Drexel graduates, were part of the OFF CAMPUS nominated team in 2012 and the winning team in 2011. New 2013 graduates Andrew Misialek and Alex Igidbashian were recognized as both directors and writers, Arlynn Katz and Megan Pollin were recognized for their roles as producer and editor, respectively.
Off Campus is made possible by the generous support of the The Kal and Lucille Rudman Institute for Entertainment Industry Studies.
