CITY OF STARS
From his pilot script, Ryan Nellis created a “proof of concept” for an uplifting anthology series. Each half-hour show is a musical fantasy drama about diverse Gen Z creators and performers who must overcome limiting beliefs and unite their amazing talents to compete in a mysterious podcaster’s underground arts festival. City of Stars pilot script is available upon request.
"This short tale is highly creative, unique, and imaginative. It's a character driven story that combines drama, fantasy, music, and dance. It's insightful and thought provoking. It's the type of story that will generate buzz and could be critically acclaimed.” –Screenplay Readers
