Logline: 
The Navy's latest, armed-to-the-teeth Destroyer comes to the aid of a vessel that collided with an unknown creature, provoking deadly combat between prehistoric sea monsters and a modern military ill-prepared to counter such an adversary.
Synopsis/Details: 

From the success of the recent Jurassic World and its many lesser imitators, it seems that the public never grows tired of dinosaurs!

Tagline: Plesiosaur? Meet Man. Man? Meet Plesiosaur.

Although high budget, and with a sequel potential, this is not your average CGI-exclusive dino-flick.

Aside from the fact that I had Denzel Washington in mind for the lead, I attempted to make this story scientifically grounded. That is, the creatures are not 500 feet long. The action is spiced up with an environmental message (Greenpeace sort of provokes the story) and includes a dramatic, humorous and relevant subplot of gender issues – considering the crew is 95% male and the commander is not, and it’s her first commission! And of course my leading man had hoped to get the job – but didn't.

So if you'd like to view the script or detailed synopsis for this fun dino story for grown-ups, I look forward to sending the PDF(s) to your attention. (Also available as Pilot + Episode One)

The Writer: Steve Garry

I wrote my first screenplay in 2008, at the age of 52. It was a surprise, yet predicable too, for composition was my favorite subject in my earliest years of elementary school. But somewhere between the ages of 10 and 52, I must have felt that writing wasn't a serious or possibly an attainable career. My writing methodology is unique because I use many of the same skills I used for decades as a software programmer. The stories must be both "logical" and "bug free". Oh, and hopefully, thought-provoking, entertaining, suspenseful, or humorous, often in the same script, with captivating characters and story lines, especially given the complex themes I often take on in my work.
