Grad Film student Ria Tobaccowala’s thesis was awarded a Sloan Production Grant. Tobaccowala’s TV pilot USER ZERO is a thriller featuring a neuroscientist who develops a pacemaker for the brain to treat bipolar disorder, but a major setback makes her question whether or not her invention is good for human kind.

The pilot, which wrapped on principal photography in September, stars Connie Shi (Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt) and Jeremy Holm (Mr. Robot).
