The hit online television series, The Battery's Down, will premiere Episode 11, "Bad Bad News," on Friday, May 1 at Midnight on YouTube and their official website. The show is filmed in a style similar to Curb Your Enthusiasm and chronicles the life of young actor Jake Wilson in New York City.

With a theme song composed by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul (Edges, Johnny and the Sprites), each episode will be written by Wilson and will also feature new songs by a talented musical theatre writer or writing team, including Laurence O'Keefe (Legally Blonde, Bat Boy!), David Kirshenbaum (Vanities, Summer of '42), Michael Patrick Walker (Altar Boyz), Kait Kerrigan and Brian Lowdermilk (The Unauthorized Biography of Samantha Brown), Josh Salzman and Ryan Cunningham (I Love You Because), Sean Mahoney (Factory Girls), Michael Weiner and Alan Zachary (Secondhand Lions), and Ryan Scott Oliver and Kirsten A. Guenther (Mrs. Sharp).
The second season is lead by director/choreographer Connor Gallagher (Perez Hilton Saves The Universe) and Music Supervisor Adam Wachter (Happy Days).
