Amid all of the fantasy football researching, number-crunching, and anguishing (see last issue, ed.), I do find time for other pursuits. My supersecret projects come to mind. I know, I know. You’ve heard very little about them – but that’s only because, well, they’re supersecret. Hopefully, they’ll eventually see the light of day (and, preferably, a t.v. screen) in the not too distant future. In the meantime, allow me to offer the following cryptic updates:
What is it?: Urban fantasy series.
Status: We completed the first draft of the pilot yesterday.
What can I reveal?: At this point, not much. We’re very happy with the script which offers a nice balance of scares, humor, and character moments. The trio at the heart of the prospective series and their unique relationships will be a blast to write for if this goes.
What is it?: Space opera series.
Status: I’m halfway through the series bible. This week, we review the source material and then, next week, Paul and I get together and start breaking the pilot.
What can I reveal?: Oh, regular readers of this blog will figure it out. Nothing written in stone but things are suddenly looking very hopeful for this labor of love.
What is it?: SF series.
Status: Friday night, Paul and I go to dinner with the prospective show’s creators to discuss working on the pilot.
What can I reveal?: Again, not much. This one is in the early stages – so far as our (Paul and my) involvement is concerned – but what they’ve put together so far looks great and has some kickass potential.
What is it?: SF series based on a literary work by a major scifi author.
Status: This one is in the early stages as well. If the pieces fall into place (and, sometimes, they do), Paul and I will be starting work on the pilot next month.
What can I reveal?: Oh, this one’s the hush-hushiest of them all until a deal gets closed.
Meanwhile, our former Stargate associates are busy with their own projects, supersecret and not…
Brad Wright is working on at least two supersecret projects…that I know of.
Golden Boy Martin Gero completes work on the second season of his series, the L.A. Complex: http://www.facebook.com/TheLAComplexCW
Carl Binder has his own supersecret project under wraps in addition to a not-so-secret project: show-runner for Hallmark’s
And Robert Cooper has so many things on the go I’ve lost track.
Who knows what the future holds. Maybe some of these projects? Maybe none of them? Maybe a food cart specializing in Akemi’s mapo tofu and okonomiyaki?
