Armstrong has produced 10 webisodes totally 30 minutes and featuring new songs in each part of the series.

Tim describes the show as a cross between Twilight Zone and The Outer Limits. It stars his friends Davey Havok from AFI and Lars Frederiksen from Rancid. Armstrong is the narrator. He calls himself “the punk Rod Sterling” in reference to The Twilight Zone’s creator and narrator.

“Doing a show centered on musical theatre isn’t really a stretch for me,” says Armstrong. “For 25 years I’ve been making music and collaborating with friends, been involved in hundreds of videos, and it’s really just a direct extension of my world. VEVO is the perfect partner to premiere the show because their platform is extensive and will bring lots of eyeballs to our show.”

The series features 50 new songs in the first 12 episodes. Armstrong says that he and his friends wrote and recorded five of the songs in five days.
