Solid 8 follows Nicki, a young actress trying to find her way in NYC theatre and film, who constantly runs into professional and personal obstacles- often of her own creation. Dealing with career fumbles, personal and familial tensions, and a near-constant fear of failure lead her to the most important question every young artist must ask: Is it worth it to even keep trying?
Anyone who lives or loves the creative life will relate/laugh/cry with this funny, honest and sometimes heart-wrenching portrayal of one actress’s struggle in the big city. Solid 8 was created by Magan Carrigan & Taylor Williams, executive produced by Carrigan & Williams, Danny Gorman, and Emily Marquet.
"The new web series 'Solid 8' might take place in New York, but its foundation is solidly rooted in Fredericksburg. It’s also proof that those kids—you know the ones—who hang out at Hyperion and wax poetic are up to big things."
