Back in September 2014 the possible TV series The Protocol achieved the milestone of appearing on IMDb. I realise that this is not necessarily proof that a project is on the way to release but it always stuck me as a significant event in its life. The Protocol pilot/short was filmed during the Summer of 2013 by Johnny Messner’s production company and saw Kathryn take a small role.
A month later in an interview at the New York Comic Con the actress Xen Sia (or whatever her name is this week, it seems to change daily!) talked about the project. There were suggestions it was being pursued by multiple networks for development and broadcast.
After the news on Tuesday about 2 Br/1 Ba (now called Roommate Wanted) getting a release things seem to have taken a turn for the negative now.
Three weeks ago The Protocol‘s IMDb page disappeared. Initially it could have been a glitch but it has remained absent and also been removed from the various cast and crew’s pages. As it will all be linked together within the database that makes up the Db in IMDb this isn’t a suprise. It’s as though it never existed. Maybe it never did… spooky!
Will the results of the Summer 2013 labours ever see the light of day? Johnny?
