Star Trek’s Marina Sirtis is starring in a new fan-funded medical TV show called Internity. Created by Joey Adams, the show is about a misfit group of new doctors trying to survive “intern hell” at a Portland, Oregon hospital.
Also starring will be Richard Ruccolo, Carla Jimenez, Jim Beaver and Joey Adams. The pilot will be directed by Michael Dorn, who will also make a special cameo!
Joey has setup an indiegogo project to help fund the shooting of the pilot episode.
They hope to raise $100,000 to help with production and general costs of filming the pilot episode.
