As we bid a fond farewell to Halloween, let’s take a look at a new horror comedy series. Tom, Dick & Harry Creative Co. (TDH) released 350 W. Eerie, an original four-episode short-form scripted series from their internal production and content house, TDH Studios. The series – which follows TDH employees as they investigate mysterious paranormal activity going on in the office – redefines what it means when an agency is “ghosted” and pays homage to the agency’s notoriety as “Chicago’s craft agency.”
Set at Chicago-based agency Tom, Dick & Harry Creative Co., 350 W. Eerie follows a group of co-workers who, following a series of uncanny events, band together to launch a paranormal investigation of the office. A late-night ghost hunt leads them to connect with a supernatural entity who isn’t so scary after all – turns out, he fits right in.
Here are all four episodes woven together, for you to enjoy…
The series, which is shot in mockumentary style and parodies the paranormal investigation genre (think a mash-up of The Office and Ghost Adventures), was created/written/directed by, and exclusively stars, Tom, Dick & Harry Creative Co. team members. Post-production (including editing, sound mixing, and visual effects) was also completed entirely in-house.
“350 W. Eerie not only showcases the wide-ranging skillset – from creative conception to production to VFX – of our internal content team,” said Greg Reifel, Managing Partner at Tom, Dick & Harry Creative Co. “But it also succinctly and creatively embraces the TDH brand: that craft is the spirit and heart of our agency.”
