The Chainsmokers have gone from Grammy award-winning artists to filmmakers, and are now dipping their feet into television. Alex Pall and Drew Taggart are in the works to executive produce a new music drama show called Demo for the Freeform Network. The show will come from The Chainsmokers' Kick The Habit Productions and Stampede Ventures

Demo will be a drama centered around a 20-something songwriter as she braves the cutthroat music industry of Los Angeles. She leaves behind her family and life in a struggling indie rock band to make pop songs. It doesn't take long until she realizes that in order to make music that truly matters she will need to face her demons and dig deep to tell her real story. 

The show will be written by Madam Secretary and Switched at Birth veteran Joy Gregory. Gregory will join Pall and Taggart as executive producers on the show. This will be the first foray into television for Kick The Habit Productions. 

In 2018, the duo announced the launch of the production company and partnership with TriStar Pictures to release their first project, Paris, a film inspired by their 2017 hit single of the same name. No release date has been announced for either Demo or Paris.
