I spend a lot of time brainstorming while I write. I’m usually doing it for the characters that I’m writing about, but yesterday for some strange reason I was completely sidetracked by an idea for a script.
While I would love to include the idea here, I don’t really want anyone to steal the idea from me, so I’m not going to post it. I must just be happy with giving you THIS information:
It’s based on an old TV show and a feature film from the 40’s thru the early 70’s.
I would be bringing the story up to date…bringing the characters into the 21st century.
It has a paranormal theme, but for some reason has been overlooked in this last onslaught of paranormal based shows.
With that being said, I have a couple of questions for my very small audience here:
1. This idea has already been a movie and a show once. The show ran in the late sixties and early seventies. Before I write this, are there any kinds of permissions that I need to get before I start writing it out? Can I go ahead and write it and label it with the label “Fan Fiction?”
2. Is the market too saturated with Paranormal based shows as it is? Is there room for one more good show on this subject, even if it is rather soap opera-ish?
Please folks, your input is required here before I decide to move on. Please leave comments!
