Audi, in association with FX Networks, is running “Untitled Jersey City Project,” a jointly developed 16-minute short-form original drama featuring the 2012 Audi A6. The series premiered on Sunday, September 25, and will roll out over four consecutive weeks as eight, two-minute episodes airing during FX’s Sunday primetime movies. Each of the eight instalments appear as fragments of a television series or film, supplying a piece of a puzzle involving men working for an architectural firm who are hiding a dark secret.
Amidst the burned-out buildings across the Hudson from New York City, a shining new city is being built. Up-and-coming architect Frank George awakes to a cryptic call from Ray Rahne and races to the construction site to see his partner lying dead in a pool of blood. This is the new Jersey City but unfortunately for Frank, the old rules are still the same. Click on the image below to play Episode 1 in YouTube (HD)
