Thinking Outside The Pill Box, ‘Agent 88′ – The Web Series By Digger T. Mesch

“Agent 88 – From the brilliant mind of Digger T. Mesch

Isn’t it time we had a deadly assassin/spy who can field strip a 9mm while knitting a sweater?

Listen Up Geek-monkeys,  we have been asked a multitude of times to promote kickstarter programs and have declined all of them …until now.

What is Agent 88?

It’s only the most brilliant comic book styled series about an 88 year old Brittish woman with Alzheimers.  That’s right, a mee-maw that kicks ass and can’t remember the names she took.

Described by the makers as an eclectic cocktail of KILL BILL, CRANK and MR MAGOO, AGENT 88 is a dark action comedy that meshes wry wit with cutting-edge martial arts action, slick visual effects and the conviction that killing just gets better with age.

If you’re not excited about this project by now please slam your hand in a drawer and then make sure you have a pulse.

Digger T. Mesch and his team are truly trying to bring entertainment back to the people and without our support there is no way this film could be made through the traditional Hollywood system. They need our help!

I’m not asking you to back this kick starter, I’m telling you that you’re robbing the world of joy if you don’t.

Synopsis:

Agent 88 is extreme comic book style cinematic romp full of martial arts action, killer special effects and unforgettable characters.

Throughout recorded history spies, secret agents and assassins have engaged in subterfuge, violence and murder to shape the desired course of mankind for their masters. This deadly craft continues even today, and remarkably, one of its most lethal participants is not a member of the Yakuza, Massad, or the Colombian Drug Cartel, but an 88-year-old British woman currently living the quiet life in Los Angeles.

She may suffer from the occasional bout of forgetfulness, and hasn’t updated her wardrobe since the late 1970’s, but underestimate her at your own peril. Agent 88 may appear to be a decrepit old lady, but in reality she is a highly skilled warrior assassin.
