Grab your popcorn, 12-gauge and your police scanner – the PAYDAY Crew are hitting the streets

Milton Keynes, 5 June 2013, 505 Games, OVERKILL – a Starbreeze studio and director Demian Lichtenstein today unveiled the first episode in the live action PAYDAY Web Series

In a true cooperation over industry barriers; the game studios, movie makers and games publishers have pulled off an entertainment job rarely seen before. Get ready for a true cross media production.

Director Demian Lichtenstein, of 3000 Miles to Graceland commented, “The PAYDAY web series has been a solid and very close collaboration between all parties involved. I have never experienced such a high level of commitment to excellence from PAYDAY creators, Bo and Ulf Andersson, to the rock-solid input of game director David Goldfarb, and the combined efforts of the powerhouse global teams at 505 Games, Starbreeze, Overkill, Solaris, Equilibrium and Lightstone. Simply said, this is the best experience of my career.”

Executive produced by Greg O’Connor of Warrior and Pride and Glory fame, the web series was filmed on location in Los Angeles with a crew of over 100 and sets the scene for the next steps in the evolution of the PAYDAY story.

More episodes are set to launch every other week until the release of PAYDAY 2 in August this year on home consoles and PC.
