TELEVISION PILOT, DRAMA, THRILLER
When massive electromagnetic pulses of unknown origin rock the earth, electricity becomes a thing of the past - all communication technologies, modern transportation, systems of production and distribution are instantly wiped out. Henry Hawkins, a successful hedge-fund manager, discovers his skills mean little in a new world where seeds and ammunition are the currencies of worth. After his family escapes the increasingly barbaric lawlessness of a darkened Manhattan, they must learn to hunt, to gather, to farm - simple survival requires adaption. As tribes begin to form as the basis of the new society, Henry claws his way to the chiefdom. Henryʼs brilliant seventeen-year-old son, Johnny, despises his calculating and ambitious father, and soon breaks away to form his own clan. These factions face the threat of each other, marauding outsiders, and an uncertain future as they struggle to forge a new civilization.
JOSEPH CLAY has eight siblings - he knows something of conflict and
drama. After completing his degree in English Literature at the University of Utah,
Joseph heeded the call to go east, young man, and moved to New York City. He took time off from his job as a commercial editor to write and direct a feature film involving accidental prostitution, cremation, and Black Metal music. The very day shooting wrapped, he received his letter of acceptance to the Columbia University MFA film program. Joseph writes "family" stories - narratives no one would mistake as family-friendly - but instead ones based on his firm belief that the most dynamic relationships and interesting conflicts exist within the walls of home. Joseph lives, quite conflict-free,
in Brooklyn with his wife and two daughters.
