THURSTON To Air Exclusively On The SFN

The SFN today announced that western web series THURSTON has been acquired for exclusive distribution on the network. Created by Kathryn O’Sullivan and exec produced by O’Sullivan and Paul Awad, the show is a compelling drama revolving around the residents of a remote mining town and their struggle for survival in the Kansas Ozarks. THURSTON was nominated for Best Web Series (Drama) at this year's Indie Soap Awards with star Catherine Frels nominated in the Lead Actress category.

“We absolutely love what Kathryn has created with THURSTON,” said Todd Fisher, co-founder of The SFN. “She and Paul (series director) have found a wonderful mix of visual style, great storytelling and fascinating characters. It’s a wonderful addition to the network.”

“We are thrilled that THURSTON will be joining The SFN and look forward to working with Stewart and Todd, two incredibly positive, creative forces in the industry,” said O’Sullivan. “When I first thought about creating a web series, I knew I was interested in creating a series about people struggling and triumphing over adversity. The Wild West seemed like a great backdrop for telling the characters’ stories and posed an interesting and exciting challenge.”

THURSTON will begin its exclusive run on The SFN starting Tuesday April 3 at 9 p.m. ET.
