‘Monongahela’ Feature Film in Production in Pittsburgh


2nd State Productions LLC to produce full-length creature feature

Production began March 1st on the independent feature film Monongahela. Written by a local author, Monongahela is a sci-fi thriller that follows Kate Walsh (Alexandra Russo, Cleveland I Love You), after she misses her flight, loses her job, and meets two men in the airport bar: Mick (Scott Sullivan, Brothers at Last) and Ben Munroe (Jake Mulliken, Breaking Bad). Mick and Ben reveal to Kate that they are Cryptozoologists, researchers who spend their time chasing down Bigfoot and camping out on the shores of Loch Ness. When Kate asks them what they are doing in Pittsburgh, they inform her that they are there to find a mysterious creature lurking in the Monongahela river.

That meeting marks the beginning of a fast paced adventure filled with comedy, romance, and suspense as the three discover they are now racing the clock to solve the Monongahela mystery before hundreds of triathlon runners take to the waters exactly where people have seen the monster!

Monongahela is being brought to life by a Pittsburgh based production company, local talent and crew, and will seek a distribution deal once post-production is completed. Set against the backdrop of the Steel City, Monongahela will keep the audience wondering what is really lurking in the Monongahela River and the reveal is more science than fiction!
