Logline: Ketchikan, Alaska, present day. What looks like a sleepy town is in reality a battlefield: ethnic pride, religious extremism, political power games and personal grievances. The missing girl is just the beginning.

Synopsis: High Water is an entertaining mystery drama taking place in Ketchikan, Alaska. Buried in between the mighty mountains and endless lakes, we follow police chief Jack Benson who cares more about the flavour of his donuts rather than the wellbeing of the citizens. But when his daughter’s teenage friend mysteriously disappears, Jack and the entire community are plunged into a darkness that threatens to destroy Ketchikan’s tranquility. However, the disappearance of Dory Jean is just a beginning of a dark journey involving family love, religious extremism and political power games - themes so closely connected to our currentworld.

With sophisticated humour, unforgettable characters and a threatening undercurrent of danger, High Water is the first animated drama series and a brilliant blend of macabre storytelling and atmospheric animation.

Match-Point: We are looking for production companies and private equity investors to complete the financing of the pilot episode, which will then be offered to various distributors (Netflix, Amazon Video etc.) for production financing.
