Harley Quinn suffers from Dissociative Identity Disorder? This is the new spin, production studio, Imagination Upgraded has gone with in telling the story of the iconic DC Comics villain Harley Quinn in its new, non-profit fan web series.
Harley Quinn: The Web Series Synopsis
Batman and Joker have both mysteriously disappeared from [Gotham](series:1127075). Harleen Quinzel, a psychiatrist secretly suffering from Dissociative Identity Disorder, has managed to suppress her alternate personality, Harley Quinn, for quite some time. However, Quinn becomes increasingly determined to find out what happened to her beloved Mistah J, and a new villain looks to take over the streets of Gotham City.
Imagination Upgraded has released a teaser and a pilot webisode thus far, which boasts over 175,000 views on their Youtube Channel.
“The story of Harley Quinn's origin is a story that has not been widely explored. No one knows much about Harleen Quinzel. I’ve always thought it would be cool to explore the idea of Harleen being a psychiatrist hiding and attempting to treat her own mental disorder, DID (Dissociative Identity Disorder)." Harley Quinn Director, Brandon 'Champ' Robinson.
Imagination Upgraded looks to raise funds to produce the Harley Quinn Web Series.
The production studio is looking to raise $20,000 through the “All or Nothing” crowd funding platform Kickstarter. All funds received will go toward raising the production value and completing the 6 webisode first season of the red and black princess of crime, Harley Quinn. The studio has come up with some pretty interesting rewards for “Backers” of the web series, including items such as the iconic chattering teeth gag weapon to actually being part of the cast. The campaign will run until April 16th, 2015 as they push toward making the first season of Harley Quinn a reality.
