Hello to You! As a Co-Guest Star Cop (Lost Child/Murder 101 Episode 6) on our beloved former ABC drama Detroit 187, I decided to write a proof of concept pitch for a new TV/Theatrical drama movie after Detroit 187 was canceled on 5-13-11. This human, gritty, powerful & romantic new story focuses on the people who protect & serve Michigan everyday with harrowing bravery, intelligence, sacrifice and love. It will be cast and produced using top notch Michigan writers, acting talent & Crew!
Through my Michigan based film company 313WOOD, we're raising fully dedicated funding our new collaborative Michigan based Political/Cop Drama TV series called 'Great Lake State.' As the author of the internationally highly acclaimed Vampire e-book series 'The Cries of Vampira', I have experience with writing very moving and dramatic stories. This drama, romance, thriller web series will be filmed on location in Michigan, while bringing much-needed paying jobs to the most battered economy in the country.
The collaboration of these experienced and highly skilled professionals is sure to result in an excellent film project, which will be displayed via viral media for all to enjoy.
The funds donated are applied to the cost of production, filming, photography, editing and sound. Any dollar amount helps and will be greatly appreciated. To become a product placement sponsor, email me at 313Wood@gmail.com THANK YOU FOR YOUR KIND GIVING! We, the people of Michigan, appreciate you!
