Writer Statement

I have a deep passion for screenwriting and filmmaking. I study film and story structure constantly. This script is one I've had ideas for for a long time. It was a long journey of world building and story creation until I was finally able to write the pilot episode. "Monarch" is meant as a Limited Series. I am planning a max of 6 episodes that progressively get longer as the show nears the end.
