Writing for Screen
A sampling of my screenwriting.
A political-science-fiction series. 200 years in our future, affluent people are implanted at birth with a neurological device that connects to the Internet, while those in poverty remain segregated and unconnected. When a normal man discovers within himself a powerful biological gift that threatens the status quo, he needs to learn to control it before others get to control it for him. Act I of the pilot.

Opening pages of a biopic about Brian Epstein, manager of the Beatles.
