Local filmmaker Mark Jones' soap opera webisode series On the Edge of Happiness screens Tuesday night at 6:45 p.m. at Studio on the Square as part of the Indie Memphis Film Festival.
The story, which originally aired online in four parts back in March, centers on conniving bride-to-be Sarah Perkins. Perkins stole her cousin's fiancé, who happens to be the richest bachelor in town. She's also sleeping with her college flame, hiding the fact that she's pregnant, and blackmailing her gay minister brother. To top it off, Sarah is shot in the first episode by a mystery assailant.
Jones describes the series as "one-third Dallas, one-third Dynasty, and one-third Gays of Our Lives." Though On the Edge is his first webisode series, Jones has produced two films — screwball comedy Eli Parker Is Getting Married? and campy B-horror flick Fraternity Massacre at Hell Island.
