Logline: 
An Infectious Disease Specialist aided by a sympathetic cop struggles to warn skeptical authorities to prepare for pandemic as an apocalyptic virus breaks quarantine and begins a relentless global march.
Synopsis/Details: 

Tales of world-wide pandemics, and the people who try to survive them, are a staple of Hollywood. They are as varied as Stephen King’s soon-to-be-remade “The Stand”, or more grounded takes on the subject such as “Contagion” and “Outbreak”.

My heroine-driven apocalyptic drama trilogy is suitable for theatrical releases or a six-part cable mini-series. These grounded stories cover 30 years of chronological time, and focus on the real issues of H5N1 and an avian-borne pandemic:

Part I: The Mawr Pneumonica (112 pages, 4 page synopsis)

Logline: An Infectious Disease Specialist aided by a sympathetic cop struggles to warn skeptical authorities to prepare for pandemic as an apocalyptic virus breaks quarantine and begins a relentless global march.

Part II: The Farmhouse and the Ziggurat (129 pages, 4 page synopsis)

Logline: As a family in an isolated farmhouse struggles to survive a cataclysmic pandemic, a miraculous survivor is discovered by scientists in a huge compound a thousand miles away. (NOTE: This script is also available as a 120-page standalone story, for an audience that wants something more exotic than a domestic drama but that isn’t too far "out there": ie. there aren't any zombies or invading aliens!)

Part III: Tempesta Tormenta (126 pages, 4 page synopsis)

Logline: A family makes a thousand-mile journey across a perilous, apocalyptic landscape to meet survivors in a walled compound to find if they hold the key to immunity to a deadly virus.

If you'd like to view the scripts or synopses for this feature trilogy or cable miniseries, I look forward to sending the material to your attention.

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.
