People must complete tasks normally inconceivable to then and return and outline every detail. Of course, every favour comes with a catch and the complications between the story lines unfold as the series progresses.
The encounters all start with the question “How far would you go to get what you want?”
The web series features an ensemble cast with some recognizable faces including including: Xander Berkeley ( as “The Man”), Sarah Clarke (as “Sister Carmel”), Matt Nolan (as “James”) and Jennifer del Rosario ( as “Melody”).
“We will be featuring “The Booth at the End” in Shorts in the City on Citytv.com as well as distributing the content on Rogersondemand.com and other Rogers Digital Media sites.
