Co-Produced by entertainment site Geek Nation and production company Lullskull Ltd., NORTHBOUND season one is a six-part sci-fi web series about a Man (Nate Alwine) struggling to survive and protect his precious cargo after a global cataclysm.
Set during the first year after the mysterious cataclysm, the Man uses his military and survival skills to battle the elements, dwindling resources and disease in his quest to find sanctuary in a devastated world.
However, the greatest danger he must face is other men, men who may hold the answer to the mysterious catastrophe that has befallen the world.

Opening during the winter, the series was gorgeously shot entirely in the breathtaking Upper Peninsula region of the state of Michigan.
The forests, mountains, and valleys possess a grandeur and intimidating beauty that gives the series an undeniable verisimilitude. In fact, the woodland setting itself is a vital character in NORTHBOUND.
Besides the fantastic cinematography, among the other series hallmarks is its lead, Nate Alwine.
Alwine gives a superb performance as the Man. Without the benefit of much dialogue, he conveys a gamut of emotions including desperation, devotion, and fierce determination.
Alwine also has the imposing physicality one would expect from someone with extensive military training.
These factors combined make Alwine mesmerizing to watch on screen.
Writers/producers Seth and Nathan Anderson have created a compelling post-apocalyptic narrative that is, at its core, a classic man vs nature, man vs man saga.
You may watch all episodes of NORTHBOUND exclusively on the Geek Nation website: www.geeknation.com/northbound.
Fortunately, production on episodes for season two of NORTHBOUND is scheduled to begin in the fall.
In fact, a teaser for season two has already been released ...
NORTHBOUND deftly follows in the tradition of acclaimed, more introspective post-apocalyptic dramas such as Cormac McCarthy's The Road.
