Thanks for comments so far guys! I guess I should probably say a little more about this mystery project. It’s something that’s been brewing for years, and I’m still trying to figure out how to frame it. Originally I was outlining it as a series of small scripts fit for a TV miniseries, or a short-run comic book series. A series very much inspired by the likes of Cowboy Bebop, Firefly, Transmetropolitan and the like. A spin on a future Earth (still not decided on how far into the future), where things have ended up pretty crummy. Political revolutions, global warming, etc have left large chunks of the globe as expansive wastelands. Depending on what part of society you may dwell in, you’ll find everything from hi-tech cyberpunk landscapes, to the gritty barren deserts of Tatooine. There’s even a city of outcast robots, as A.I. has been banned from human society. The battles between the rich, poor and middle-class continue. And weaving through the lines of all this are Jack and Ed, a pair of bounty hunters operating out of one of the scattered mega-metropolitan cities in America. Originally, my plan was to create a series of episodes (25 give or take), telling Jack and Ed’s adventures in their line of work. The interesting characters they come across in this world, people and situations that tell us more about their character, and circumstances that at times further solidify and other times make them question their alliance with each other. The stories would mostly be standalones, but serve to further the character development, as well as slowly piece together an ongoing larger story arc to be resolved. There will be laughs, there will be tears, there will be mystery, and buttloads of action. And at the heart of it, Jack and Ed, an unlikely pair who (whether they admit to it or not) end up each other’s rock in this crazy post-apocalypse. A very Shane Black styled Lethal Weapon buddy duo. I could ramble about this forever, but I can’t let myself get too excited for this at the moment, as I’m still finishing my current project: Dax Harrison. Stay tuned though! There will be more here eventually. :)

This sounds like it could produce a cool buddy story as two guys encounter some very rough characters in a cold dystopian America.  Cool!
