Producer Wanted for Civil War Mini-Series (Female Lead)
I am a producer, writer and director who is looking for another producer who might be interested in helping me bring this world to life. I have been working on the script for many years as a feature film, but recently realised there was far too much material for one movie and I have adapted it into a mini-series. The pilot called 'A Virginia Girl' is ready to go and is completely able to be shot right here in Queensland.
As the story is about women and their struggle through this particular war I believe a female producer would be a very welcome perspective to bring to the production, but in saying that men are very welcome to apply as well.
I am looking for a producer with some experience (a short film at least) and maybe some ideas on how to get funding. An interest in finding locations/green-screen studios for us to check out would be a bonus.
TITLE: The Soldier's Wife (Mini-Series)
Genre: (Period Drama, Romance, Adventure)
Log Line: Thrust into the perils of the Civil War a young woman of the South must push aside her privileged upbringing and trudge knee-deep into a world of blood, spies and personal tragedy in a desperate attempt to keep her family from being torn apart.
Synopsis: Set during the Civil War and based on a true story, THE SOLDIER'S WIFE is a tale of young trauma nurse Nell Grey who must battle her way through the horrors of war as the armies of North and South tear each other apart. Before the conflict is over Nell will be forced to risk everything and run the Yankee blockade to reunite with her family living on the other side of enemy lines. Once there, her sister's love for a captured Confederate spy puts all of their lives in jeopardy and the whole family must risk capture and possible death to slip past the Yankee lines and make it back to the safety of the South. In the dying days of the war, at the Siege of Petersburg, Nell must fight her way through the never ending Yankee bombardment, rising flood-waters and her own despair to transport her gravely injured husband away from the front before it’s too late!
Audition / Rehearsal / Production datesI would like to start development as quickly as possible and shoot the pilot before the end of the year.
