CHICAGO – When two passionate content creators got together, they sought not only to produce a work of entertainment, but a higher philosophy within it. Co-Writers/Directors and Executive Producers Adriana Leonard and Carley Marcelle have created “Beta” A Digital Series, and they are about to launch it.

The creative pair are also the main characters. Delta (Marcelle) is an executive in a consulting firm with a scattered assistant named Lini (Leonard). When the job comes to a dead end, Lini convinces Delta to partner with her as entrepreneurs. Despite their opposing approach to process, the duo begin the grind of idea execution, fund raising and “working together.” From the peculiarities of start-up culture, to gender dynamics in business, to the particular complexities of millennial female relationships, “Beta” is a deep dive into the heart of evolving modern women.
