MDR has told the Nest about their new live action series for television… to be based on Dorsai, the first published book of the Childe Cycle series of science fiction novels by the late Gordon R. Dickson.

The story follows a young boy (Donal Graeme) on his quest to win the love of a woman bound to a brilliant and charming galactic dictator. To do so, the young officer has to defeat said dictator and fulfil his destiny to become the greatest general in the universe.

Eventually, he unlocks powers in him directly leading to him being the next step in human evolution.

MDR is a Los Angeles-based production company launched in 1995 by industry executives, Mark Rodriguez and Belinda Romano. The firm has conceived and produced projects for The Walt Disney Company, Paramount Pictures, NBC, FOX, TelePictures, Warner Bros Television and The Kennedy/Marshall Company.

Executive Producers, Mark Rodriguez and Dave Fraunces told the Nest, “This will allow us to stay in touch with our True Fans, we will not only interact with the fans, but really listen to what their ideas are.”

There’s a new web site over at and a fan page has been established on Facebook as well.
