Craig Brewer the writer/director behind “Hustle & Flow” and “Black Snake Moan” has signed up with MTV New Media to create an original webseries for the Online Network.

The series, titled “$5 Cover”, is “an exploration of working-class Memphis, particularly the midtown music scene he knows intimately as a native of the city” according to the Hollywood Reporter.

The episodes will be about 8 minutes long and “instead of hiring actors or building sets, Brewer is calling on his favorite musicians to play thinly veiled versions of themselves in the same haunts where such less-than-household names as Muck Sticky and Amy LaVere rose to local fame. There is no script, only improvised dialogue based on story ideas Brewer drew from his cast’s real-life exploits.” You can read more about “$5 Cover”, including how the series came to life here.
