Industry News: Author Kim Cresswell signs with Council Tree Productions #canauthors #TV

I’m thrilled to announce that I’ve signed a contract with writer/producer Joel Eisenberg and  Council Tree Productions (a feature film and TV development company in Los Angeles, California) for THE ASSASSIN CHRONICLES.

About Council Tree Productions (Source: Business Wire – April 19, 2017)

“Writer/producer Joel Eisenberg and his “The Chronicles of Ara” writing partner, Stephen Hillard, have formed Council Tree Productions, a feature film and television development company.

Hillard, President of private equity investment firm Council Tree Investors, has invested in and advised on transactions totaling over $10 billion, including control of Telemundo, for which his company invested $181 million in 2000, and numerous major telecom transactions.

“Joel’s and my own interests are perfectly aligned within several media genres,” Hillard says. “We met at a Los Angeles pitch festival and I pitched him my novel, ‘Mirkwood.’ We became friends and then business partners due to our mutual interests, especially in the realm of fantasy.”

As writers, Stephen and Joel are currently writing the multi-volume “The Chronicles of Ara” fantasy novels. As producers, they are developing “Farway Canyon,” with Anthony (“Sharknado”) Ferrante directing, based on Hillard’s new comic book series with Dennis Nowlan.

“Cable and streaming services are presenting remarkable opportunities of late,” Eisenberg says, whose “Then Again with Herbie J Pilato” classic TV talkfest, executive produced with Hillard, is tentatively airing later this year on Decades Network. “A more formal partnership with Stephen was a natural progression.”

Priority projects on the team’s development slate include “IRL,” which is described as an LGBTQ-themed cross of “The Leftovers” and “The Walking Dead,” “Shadow Show,” as “hosted” by Vincent Price (of whom the company has attained likeness rights from the late actor’s daughter, Victoria) – a re-branding of Sam Weller and Mort Castle’s bestselling anthology and IDW comic book series – and the aforementioned “Farway Canyon.”

The partners maintain their separate projects as well. “Louis vs Schmeling,” based on one of boxing’s most historic rivalries, is forthcoming from co-writers Eisenberg and Gil Adler (producer of “Superman Returns” and “Valkyrie”), with Bill Duke directing…”

The Assassin Chronicles is based on my upcoming 4-book paranormal/supernatural thriller series (Deadly Shadow (Book One), Assassin’s Prophecy, Invisible Truth, and Vision of Fire). Even though this is only the first step in seeing this kickass project hopefully developed for television down the road…the journey has begun.  Stay tuned!

Review of 2016 and Happy New Year! #2017

newyear2017

2016 is probably the year most people want to forget. With the loss of so much talent in the film and music industry we were left asking ourselves what the hell happened? I can’t say I ever remember a year filled with so much sadness, heartbreak and disbelief. It is the end of the year and I can finally say, “Goodbye 2016. Get lost. Hit the road. You suck!”.

This past year has taken me on a journey I certainly won’t forget. From horrible medical issues due to Lyme Disease and Bartonella to a personal journey triggered by a “not so wonderful” relationship. The one thing I have learned from 2016 is…it’s amazing what humans can endure and overcome.

I’ve battled through a TIA (mini-stroke), an appendicitis-like event, a gall-bladder from hell (a nasty part I don’t want or need but for some reason doesn’t want to leave me), having to use a cane and walker when my body doesn’t have the strength to stand or walk, fifty plus doctor and specialist appointments, numerous ambulance rides and ER visits, and cancelled gallbladder surgery because I developed pneumonia two days before surgery to end the year on a more disappointing note.

There is some good news, though. The TIA was finally ruled as a TIA-like event likely caused by inflammation due to Lyme and Bartonella and not a true stroke. Although, the left side of my mouth still drops slightly (and no one knows why), I am grateful. Things could have been much worse. As far as my journey after leaving a personal relationship, I have found myself again. I knew I was there all along. It was a struggle to bring myself back. So hurray! I’m back!

Goodbye 2016! You won’t be missed.

This year certainly put roadblocks everywhere but I slayed each one determined to hit most of my goals for the year.

JET: Duplicity, the second Kindle Worlds novella in the Survival series and sequel to JET: Oblivion featuring JET from Russell Blake’s bestselling action/adventure series and characters from my own Whitney Steel series release in May 2016.
