Calling Occupants

Co-creator and writer of pilot episode (script) -- series, musical bio-pic. 

Set not long after NASA archived its last shuttle – and space travel and exploration became limited to hitching a ride on Russian rockets or relying on robotics – Calling Occupants introduces us to a world in crises. A world where a cosmic sighting on live TV plunges the planet into fear and panic. A world where religion is put to the test and nations must learn to come together. With the status quo disrupted, a playboy billionaire bankrolls an international race to space designed to accelerate humankind’s ability to patrol the stars.

The series is an action-packed, thought-provoking journey into the “what if” that celebrates innovation and perseverance, while looking at the human condition and our fear of change and the unknown.

(Inspired by the Klaatu song intended as theme song.)
