Writer-producer-director Caryn K. Hayes unleashes high drama online with her new award-winning web soap series, BREAKING POINT, which follows a group of friends as they deal with the extraordinary crises that make up their day-to-day lives.
The series is set to launch on Tuesday, August 2, with a new episode rolling out each Tuesday for five consecutive weeks.
BREAKING POINT is an ensemble web series that tracks a group of friends dealing with their dreams, triumphs, and heartaches, as they struggle to maintain their relationships, livelihoods, and sanity. When their everyday struggles become difficult to maintain and their world tilts off-course, some may go to extreme measures and commit a few wrongs as they hit their breaking point.
Hayes brought in Katrina Y. Nelson, Editor-in-Chief of Hollywood Official, to co-produce the series through her Hardly Working Entertainment company. BREAKING POINT premiered at the second annual Los Angeles Web Festival, winning an award for Outstanding Writing in a Drama Series and Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series (Kyle Steven Templin).
Hayes wanted to put a modern spin on a familiar style, commenting “The style of the BREAKING POINT was very important to me. I wanted the series to have the feel of primetime television, with a hint of premium cable, and a few dashes of daytime for fun.”
The ensemble cast includes: Crystal Coney (former Miss North Carolina, ONE TREE HILL), Olivia Dunkley (Superseven), Keena Ferguson (Red Line, The Marriage Chronicles), Jessica Tomé (GENERAL HOSPITAL, ALL MY CHILDREN), Michael Teh (Wraiths of Roanoke, 2010: Moby Dick), Cardell Jackson (Circle of Friends, Island of Fantasy), and Kyle Steven Templin (THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS, CRIMINAL MINDS).
Hayes, a New Orleans native, has been building a solid resume since landing in Los Angeles, producing, writing, directing, and coordinating numerous web series, documentary and corporate videos, short films and commercials. In 2007, Hayes wrote THE RIDGE, a spec teen drama, which won the 2007 TV Pilot Award from the Organization of Black Screenwriters, and in 2009 she repeated her win with the adult dramedy, DIRTY THIRTIES. Hayes created THE WORLD OF CORY & SID, a comedic web series, which was nominated for Best Television or Web Series in 2009 by the Urban Mediamakers Film Festival. Hayes produces sketch comedy with BrevityTV.com, and is currently in pre-production for more episodes of BREAKING POINT.
