AUTHOR(S) PROFILE AND STATEMENT OF INTENT
I decided years ago that this business is too difficult not to focus on stories that matter. I have also discovered that my personal and political leanings are particularly well suited to tell such socially significant stories by using the ever so sharp and effective tool known as satire. By combining the genres of comedy and drama and giving it a healthy dose of sarcasm, the goal is always to raise awareness and hopefully bring about a positive change in our ever increasingly ridiculous world.
GOALS AT THE EUROPEAN PROJECT AND TALENT FORUM
We believe that Series Mania, with its unique programming, setting, and combination of attendants, will be the perfect first finance launching of our project on an international level. We believe greatly in the international potential for ”We got this! and that the world is ready for a quirky comedy about an ignorant American solving our greatest unsolved murder mystery, with the motto: ”How hard can it be? We got this!”
