CrizlassicTV is at the forefront in providing diverse, original content that you can watch on the go. Our focus and passion is in visual storytelling. Our backdrop for telling these stories is in Northern New Jersey, our home. 

Our Content

As of 2019, Crizlassic TV has produced 4 webseries, with a total of four festival wins and 25 official selections since 2016. Our official website, Crizlassic-tv.com, features all of our content, and each series also has its own website. 

In Our Backyard is a psychological crime drama about a quiet suburban town called Trewick, which has recently become host to heavy drug trafficking. Though Trewick natives assume the drugs are coming  from the neighboring inner-city of Bethel, a new drug is being manufactured from within the neighborhood by a small group of Trewick residents who are set to begin to test the drug on their neighbors.

Looking Through the Windows is a dramatic-comedy about "adulting". This first season focuses on a newlywed couple, Sam & Denise, who have recently purchased their first house in their hometown of South Orange, NJ. However, with their crazy circle of family and friends now right around the corner, perhaps they moved a little too close to home..... (Lookingwindows.com)


To this point we have released 6 episodes of In Our Backyard, but are looking into reworking the series. Looking Through the Windows made its debut in April 2016, and has since released 25 episodes across 2 seasons. 

In October 2016 we released the pilot episode of, The Same Coin, a dramatic-thriller about three women who find themselves in the escorting business for different reasons: Tiffany by force, Liz by choice and Raq in an act of desperation. After some success in film festivals, including a Best Shorts Competition Award of Recognition, production picked up again in early 2017. To date, the series has released eight episodes- (samecoinseries.com)


On Jan. 4th 2019, CrizlassicTV released its latest series- Dependence. The story of Dependence centers around substance abuse told through the lens of two dysfunctional families connected by the courtship of Zeke and Lexi. After 22 years of committing to a drug free lifestyle, Zeke is finally pressured into smoking weed for the first time by Lexi’s mom. This sets off a chain of events that will not only impact Zeke and Lexi’s relationship, but will change both of their families for better and for worse. (DependenceTV.com)
