Chop Shop

Chop Shop, a new series that follows a group of car thieves trying to make it in the big leagues, is now available to watch on Machinima‘s YouTube channel. Growing up you might have heard something along the lines of “crime never pays.” That’s certainly not the case in Chop Shop. Instead, the world is ripe with opportunity and it’s up to this ragtag group of hoodlums to make something of themselves and get paid.

Robert Patrick makes an interesting appearance as some sort of big wig amongst the inmates. Clearly, he’s smarter than we think he is, and somewhere in that cold face of his lies a plan to take over the world.

Chop Shop has five additional episodes to add to the mix with each new episode airing on subsequent Fridays. Remember to subscribe to Machinima so you won’t miss another opportunity to view new or ongoing series.

Official Synopsis

“Chop Shop” centers on Porter (John Bregar), a car thief recently released from a five year stint in prison, who finds himself struggling to rekindle a relationship with his former girlfriend Sofia (Ana Ayora) and their five-year old son he hardly knows. Porter soon reconnects with his old partner in crime Caine (Rene Moran), whos volatile and aggressive nature puts him at odds against Porters new life. Torn between family and friendships, Porter faces the most difficult decision of his life and realizes that to change his future he might have to relive his past.

Elliott Lester (Blitz) directs the Bandito Brothers (Act Of Valor) and Joshua Weinstock produced series, alongside writers Josh Baizer and Marshall Johnson (Mortal Kombat: Legacy).  Series stars John Bregar (Being HumanKick Ass 2The Mentalist), Rene Moran (ShamelessLie to MeSwitched at Birth), Ana Ayora (Marley & MeCastle), and acclaimed actor Robert Patrick (Terminator 2: Judgment DayThe SopranosThe X-FilesTrue Blood).
