SCREENPLAYS et al...updated
BLACK SAM miniseries Part 1 - Historical drama about pirate Black Sam Bellamy, this is the "epic" (longer) version of the screenplay that I have split into two parts for a possible television miniseries. As such, it does not contain "Acts." It does contain the contemporary opening and closing scenes as well as the "accused witch" Maria Hallett storyline that the shorter version of the screenplay does not include.
BLACK SAM miniseries Part 2 - Part 2 of the Black Sam miniseries...see Part 1 for description.
MCKINNEY: The Last Gunfighter - Spec screenplay; true story of the last days of California gunfighter Jim McKinney until cornered in a Chinese opium den.
Falling Asleep at the Wheel - 2 act short spec script; based on a local Ohio ghost legend that appears to be a legend everywhere.
The Pirate Lady - This is a spec proposal for a two part miniseries about pirate Ann Bonny.
COLONIES (the teleplay) - This is a 7 act science fiction spec script about a group of rebels living in the Outer Colonies of the Solar System. Could be a MOW or a pilot film for a series (note other COLONIES items I’ve listed).
