Paul Johansson stars in new web sci-fi series

Paul Johansson hasn't done too badly since his days as Greg Hughes on "Santa Barbara." He's dabbled in the "Highlander" world and in the "Lonesome Dove" world, and he's had a great regular gig on "One Tree Hill." Now he's starring in the web-based science fiction series "IQ-145."

"IQ-145" comes from "One Tree Hill" director Billy Dickson (Johansson has directed some episodes of the latter, himself, by the way). The title refers to the genius level of IQ. The story revolves around a high-school guy with that IQ who's struggling with the (supposed?) death of his father.

"We wanted to give the audience something to piece together week to week in a nonlinear fashion," the show's site says. "Shot almost entirely in front of a green screen, we built a world of our own where reality is only in one's mind."
