Film and TV script development you’re supporting:
CRUNCH (webisode series): EPISODE ONE FILMING NOVEMBER 18! When a permanently outsourced tech worker becomes strapped for cash, he turns his basement into a low-end dormitory, where six desperate Millennials face a Darwinian struggle to survive.
A LITTLE TOO BROKEN: An adaptation of my novel. Read the script here!
**THE LATEST VERSION incorporates feedback from coverage which gave version 5 a 7.8 score with the comment, “This is a strong consider, and not far from a recommend.” This is huge, as only 1-5% of all scripts ever get a Recommend from a reader – their way of saying, “make this movie right now, pretty much as is.”
IF ONLY: In the utopian world of 2018, in a world in which World War II never happened, there’s clean air, low crime, fantastic public transportation, healthcare for all…
But then strange and terrible things start to happen. Citizens of Chernobyl suddenly fall sick with radiation poisoning. Same at Fukushima. Seafood suddenly becomes highly toxic. The water in Flint, Michigan, becomes mysteriously undrinkable. A great patch of floating garbage appears in the Pacific Ocean.
We discover that one man has gone back in history to 1918, to find the infinite wealth and power unavailable to him in a world with no room for demagogues or trillionaires. And the terrible actions he’s taking in the past are changing the utopian future into a nightmarish dystopia.
One man is called upon, a historian specializing in that era, to go back in time and discover how the villain changed history and stop him before he does. He must not only battle the Enemy, but the dark forces of jingoism and fascism so prevalent in America at the time, and the awesome devastation of the Great Influenza.
When it becomes clear that the Enemy has succeeded in altering history, and that Our Hero now can’t go back to his future, he must “play God” and use his knowledge to bend the course of history back into a direction that at least resembles the one he’s lost…
SECESSION – A pilot episode for a potential TV series.
“When the liberal Western states secede from the far right-wing United States, a family in the new border town of Reno, NV is torn apart as spies, black marketeers, and radical militias clash in a bitter contest for the city’s fate.”
The idea came from reading TJ Stiles’ biography of Jesse James, about how Missouri was torn apart in the Civil War era, a half secessionist/half Union state, with organized violence (Quantrell’s raiders/Jesse James on one side, John Brown on the other, to name the famous ones) waging the war in microcosm.
And Reno is more California than Nevada, with its new high tech growth. So the city becomes like Lisbon or Istanbul in WWII, a hot bed of intrigue, violence, political struggle in a city trapped between two nations…
