Updated: Jan 25, 2022

Singer, Songwriter, Actor, Film Producer, and Music Industry vet Tammy Hyler, has released an amazing and entrancing short series entitled, "Way Back In The Woods”! #movie #film

You can expect to enjoy a captivating short film about four young sisters who have been abandoned while living deep in the woods. They have no choice but to learn how to survive on the elements of nature while continuing the legacy of their families underground moonshine distillery. When a wounded and handsome hunter makes his way to the girl's home, the sisters must decide on killing this intruder or to become taken with him.

"Way Back In The Woods,” is created and produced by Tammy Hyler and co-written by Hyler and Dan Backman. The pilot features original music and songs written by Hyler, Shaye Smith (who collectively have celebrated hits recorded by George Strait, Kenny Chesney, Shania Twain, Faith Hill, Trace Adkins, Martina McBride, Collin Raye and more) and Alexis Ebert.

Hyler’s creativity has earned her a much deserved spot at the 5th Annual Franklin International Indie Film Festival, which was held in November 2021. Hyler went on, receiving accolades from New York Independent Cinema Awards and the LA Independent Film Awards.

Hyler added; "The concept for 'Way Back In The Woods’ was derived from a song that Shaye Smith, Alexis Ebert and I wrote. We shot the corresponding music video and the storyline for the series just seemed to write itself. I couldn’t get it down on paper fast enough. Though dealt a difficult card, the girls in the story become smart, able, bad ass survivors…even savvy business women. …and the dynamics of the sisters’ relationships, fighting one minute and fiercely defending one another the next, is true to life and something I know about (having a sister myself). The pilot has been dubbed 'Little Women’ in the woods, meets 'Succession,’ meets 'Outer Banks’ by industry insiders. I’m so very proud of the early welcome and praise, to be honored by the Franklin International Indie Film Festival, and to celebrate the achievement at the screening in our backyard where the film was made”.
