CARLTONS/TOM HUSTON 'JET-SET' SERIES

CARLTONS/TOM HUSTON 'JET-SET' SERIES
By Monty C. Floyd

GENRE: Drama, Experimental
LOGLINE:

In a compilation of vignettes, a modern-day Liz & Dick cavort with internationally well-heeled searching for themselves, debauchery, and answer to a life-changing riddle.

SYNOPSIS:

Our golden couple recaptures the Jet Set age where all that was extraordinary seemed natural and eternal. The series’ integrated approach to marketing, merchandising, and storytelling showcases John and Charlotte Carlton, who are fabulously wealthy, madly in love, and seem to do whatever-the-hell they want. However, underneath their sparkling veneer is an edgy despair that churns like a riptide, offering one a glimpse of the loneliest backstage after the spotlights darken.

The present-day series possesses a '50s nostalgia; each episode, running five minutes, is a passport to a vanished time, a peek at a coterie of timeless, international, complex creatures seeking refuge in a blissful world of fantasy sans selfies and social media.

The plots are ripped from past headlines providing an undercurrent of an international spy, noir drama with forays into sordid affairs while catching Ralph Lauren’s latest fall collection.

The other finely rendered characters, the women in couture gowns with unbridled inhibitions, the men in tuxedos with fast cars, give us an intimate portrait of flawed individuals' success and failures. Tom Huston is one example; a millionaire cowboy-tough-guy who draws one into a mythical world where ruggedness, freedom and danger are common traits, yet he struggles to move past a life-altering incident.

John and Charlotte Carlton are rock stars, their stages are exotic locales like Portofino, Gstaad, and Montevideo, their groupies are the young and dazzling alluring us mortals to want to be them, be around them ... be swept down their rabbit hole on a Gulfstream 650.

* The series is created for entertainment, but also an advertising/marketing campaign.
