The first season of "Safety Geeks: 3D," a new Web series produced by Burbank-based Lumen Actus, is being touted as the first live-action comedy Web television series presented in a three-dimensional format.
The 3-D version of the show, produced by Lumen Actus partners and comedy duo Tom Konkle and Dave Beeler with digital effects engineer Mike Smith, was announced in Santa Monica in June.
"Safety Geeks: 3D," Konkle said, is for the Web, but was shot to be shown like a network series. The 10 shows, typically between four and 13 minutes long (including the hour-long Web movie version) revolve around a group of safety "experts" called the Professional Occupational Safety Hazard team, or POSH.
It is up to POSH to investigate safety violations and accidents. But sometimes the investigations themselves cause even more damage and accidents.
The shows, Konkle said, combine the off-the-wall and surreal humor of Adult Swim and the classic comedy of Monty Python. The project uses professionals both in front of and behind the camera, making "Safety Geeks: 3D" different from other similar online projects that may not hold themselves to such a high standard.
