Wireless will follow the story of a self-obsessed college student (Tye Sheridan) who got stranded in the Colorado mountains and his only hope for survival is the tool he has spent his whole life learning to use: his smartphone. The series will be set inside the car he crashed and the quickly dying phone that now is his lifeline.

The series is created by newcomers Zach Wechter and Jack Seidman, who will also serve as executive producers with Wechter also set to direct. Michael Sugar, Cathy Konrad, and Danny Sherman will executive produce along with Propagate’s Ben Silverman, Howard Owens, and Greg Lipstone. Wireless is a co-production by Pickpocket, Treeline Film and Propagate with Christian Heuer and Isabel San Vargas to produce.
