Cinemax Picture to push ahead with their DCV Chronicles science fiction tv series. Aliens stranded on Earth are trying to influence and accelerate its development.
Constantine Papadopoulos, CEO at Cinemax, has announced the addition of a Sci-Fi TV Movie of the Week and TV series to its development roster.
Wayne Thompson at Cinemax told SFcrowsnest.com, "'DCV Chronicles' will be the first project where our Film and Television Divisions will work hand in hand in the production and marketing of this wholly owned Cinemax Pictures project. Frank Hagan, who is our VP of Television Production and Development, has signed over the rights to DCV Chronicles, a Science Fiction series developed and created by him. In its previous incarnation, DCV Chronicles was called EARTHBOUND, a project that was once optioned by the animation house Film Roman as its first foray into live action production and subsequently by Filmwerk Meunchen, a German production company who licensed the script rights to develop the show for German Television. In 2006, Hagan revamped and updated the concept into The DCV Chronicles."
According to Papadopoulos, "When fully funded, and utilising Canadian production facilities and incentives, DCV Chronicles will be shot as a 'stand alone' Movie of the Week that will also serve as the pilot for any potential series we will be marketing. The project is a high concept Sci-Fi program about 5 young aliens who crash landed then found themselves stranded on earth back in 1863. The A story in each episode will cover their clandestine involvement over 145 years of earth history, mans creativity and invention and social development. It will give viewers a fictionalised explanation as to why we as a planet have developed at a rate 20 times faster during this period of time than at any other point in recorded history."
