XLrator Media goes episodic with new 24 HOUR RENTAL series

xlrator-media-logo__120910004307-200x125 (1)Having recently acquired the North American rights to the Canadian T.V. series 24 HOUR RENTAL, indie genre staple XLrator Media is now set to release the series in the U.S. on various digital platforms. The series, which follows a retired Mafioso who runs a sketchy video store as a front for crime, will be available to watch through XLrator Media’s Macabre label, exclusively on Hulu (beginning October 30th), before branching off to various other platforms in 2016.

Billed as “The Sopranos meets Clerks” and that’s enough to grab my attention. Personally, I think the premise of the show is really interesting and can’t wait to check it out when it makes its debut on October 30th.

24 HOUR RENTAL stars Romano Orzari (Turbo Kid), Adam Kenneth Wilson, Aaron Berg, Vlasta Vrana, Mike Smith (Trailer Park Boys) and Michael Biehn (The Terminator).

24 HOUR RENTAL follows former Mafia boss Tracker (Romano Orzari), who having barely avoided early retirement in a shallow grave, now operates a seedy video store. Struggling to stay afloat in the Internet age, Tracker runs his shop as a front for a host of petty crimes, from fencing jewelry to peddling dope cut with Drano and desperation, all in hopes of returning to power.
