Stream is an original web series from FEARnet, chronicling the trials and tribulations of Jodi Quinn (played by Academy Award winner Whoopi Goldberg). Due to side effects of a drug she took when she was 17, Jodi Quinn can remember the future. Stream follows her as she struggles to reconcile her past as an intelligent, but troubled, teen (portrayed by Shanika Cotton), her present in a psychiatric facility, and her future in which she struggles to adjust to life after so many difficult years in an institution.
Stream follows Quinn as she attempts to make sense of the scattered threads of her life. Each short episode presents moments from the past, present, and future. To add to Quinn's confusion, she is confronted by other Streamers who suffer the same visions of the future. As Quinn discovers more about the stream, she finds herself unsure of her own sanity and the truth of what she sees. Ultimately, Quinn must use her visions of the future to conquer her personal demons and piece together the shards of her broken life.
As a product of FEARnet, Stream has strong science fiction and horror appeal. It carries a TV-14 rating, so parents are advised to preview the episodes prior to allowing younger children to watch the series.
Stream consists of six episodes, each five minutes long, which originally aired on the FEARnet website. The show is a joint production of FEARnet and Whoop, Inc. The series was written by Mitchell Reichgut and directed by David Jakubovic. Starring Whoopi Goldberg, the cast also included genre favorites Erik Jensen, Dominic Marcus, and William Sadler.
