How does a trilogy spawn a television series?
We’ve documented our process of developing a trilogy of feature films called The Adventures of Gabby Wells here and here. As we continue to work on the scripts for the trilogy, we realized there are a lot of stories we could tell prior to the trilogy that would best be suited in a television series.
So, we are looking into the idea of creating a 13 episode 1/2 hour television series simply called Gabby Wells. The story would follow the main characters in the Gabby Wells trilogy prior to the events of the film. The best way to describe it at this point would be a Christian Veronica Mars.
This is still in the development stage, but we are actively working on writing the entire first season of episodes prior to beginning any pre-production so that, when filming commences, we can keep costs down by shooting a seasons worth of shots at each required location.
This is still in the fleshing-out stage and things may change, but we feel the Lord may be guiding us in this direction. We’ll continue to pray and follow the Lord’s direction. Who knows where we’ll end up!
