Bar Karma

There’s a place at the edge of the universe, a venue that’s behind time and before space, a watering hole where the tab you run up may never be paid – in this lifetime, at least.That place is Bar Karma.Notoriously lucky billionaire Doug Jones wins Bar Karma on a bet. He soon learns that ownership includes more than pouring the perfect cocktail – a lot more. Every happy hour one lost soul wanders through the bar’s doors, finding themselves at a karmic crossroads in his or her life. The Bar Karma staff guides their patrons using eerie glimpses into the past, present and many possible futures.

What would happen if you could change your fate? That’s the question Bar Karma sets out to answer. The show may begin with “a guy walks into a bar…” but Bar Karma always ends with someone’s life being changed…forever.

Bar Karma is an online, collaborative, crowd-sourced television series on Current TV.

Anyone can submit story, character, and scene ideas, as well as suggest songs, costumes, or marketing campaigns. Story-centric submissions are publicly viewable by the Bar Karma community via StoryMaker, a heavily visual content management system developed by Will Wright to support the collaboration and moderation of submissions. StoryMaker allows collaborators to reuse/remix each other’s submissions as well as add their own, allowing for a flexible, dynamic creative process with amazing content remix possibilities.
