On Monday-Saturday, Feb. 24-29, the series will feature “Up There,” a drama filmed in Norway, Michigan. Journalist Jack Cohen (Daniel Weingarten) is desperately searching for the big story that will change his career. His current underwhelming assignment lands him in a sleepy mining town in Michigan where nobody speaks to strangers, especially reporters. When a local girl, Emma (Zoe Kanters), offers to help, Jack begrudgingly accepts. Unbeknownst to her, Jack uncovers details of her tragic past, and with it, the story he has been looking for all along. Gaining Emma’s trust, he writes a story, exploiting her tragedy for his own gain. Emma’s instability, threats from her veteran brother, and Jack’s own ambitious treachery send him hurtling towards an explosive conclusion. The Los Angeles Times has said that “A lovely performance by Zoe Kanters elevates ‘Up There.’” The film is not rated.
