Half Past Jump Time is a dramatic web series that is part urban, sci-fi adventure as well as a dance/entertainment spectacle.
The story of HPJT follows the lives of: a pair of Harlem Renaissance era Cotton Club dancers; a 1920’s time traveler and a trio of contemporary NYC dancers. We know we have your attention now. Each episode will follow these young adventurers and how they deal with making it to the top of the entertainment/arts world by any means necessary. HPJT's story begins with them meeting under extraordinary circumstances and on this journey of self-discovery they ultimately change each other’s lives forever.
Harriet LeCroix, a time manipulator, living in two time periods (1920s and contemporary NYC) is the heart of the show and the very reason their lives have been turned upside down.
A major component of the show will be showcasing the social issues of each time period. We hope each episode will lead to discussions if there have been changes and progressions in society as a whole. The characters of HPJT are from two different worlds and yet their lives are similar in so many ways and the polar opposite in their viewpoints and perspectives about life. Essentially we will be comparing life in the 1920s Harlem residents with the lives of present day New Yorkers.
