Work has started on the dramatic 33 episodes TV series about a fictional branch of the famous Masonic family of Sinclairs.
June 2 2015 / Chicago, Ill. - As announced by I. Michael Toth, founder and owner of I. Michael Toth Productions Inc., the first stage of financing for the production of the TV Series, THE MASONS, started on May 26th, with a crowd-funding campaign through the indiegogo platform. The idea behind this first stage is to raise enough funds to prepare base and all necessary elements needed for the start of the second stage of financing for the production of the PILOT of this series, to run in 33 episodes. The PILOT episode is planned to be released in the latter part of 2016.
The TV Series tells the story of a young man’s search for his true identity and his family history spanning ten centuries… The series dramatically chronicles the Sinclairs, an imaginary, fictional branch of a famous Masonic family. Crossing oceans and continents, this is a multigenerational family saga about people who strove to make a better life and better world. Through centuries, while many members of the family belonged to the secret society of the Freemasons, some of their own kin violently opposed the principles, philosophy and actions of the so-called “Craft.”
Curiously enough, thirty-three episodes of the Series are inspired by the stories coming out of 33 degrees of Freemasonry. This is not surprising if we take into account that I. Michael Toth, producer and director of the Series, as well as many of the members of his production team, including screenplay writers, are members of the Fraternity of Freemasons. In 1991, Michael produced and directed the very first feature documentary ever about Freemasonry for Freemasons, titled UNSEEN JOURNEY. The year 2017 will be the 300th anniversary of the consecration of the first Masonic Grand Lodge in London (UK). The idea behind the production of this TV Series is to honor that special occasion. There will be a 90 minute TV pilot and subsequent 32 episodes (approximately 55 minutes each) that will be released and broadcast in the years 2017- 2019.
