WIZARDS is a half-hour comedy about a group of friends who play Magic the Gathering, Dungeons & Dragons and generally geek out together.
WIZARDS follows our characters as their lives become even more dramatic and adventurous than the fantasy worlds they’ve created. WIZARDS endeavors to be quickly paced, imaginatively disturbing and uncomfortably plausible. And yet, beyond the absurd and extravagant wackiness of our characters, there will be a continual, often failing, tribal urge for the community.

Director Statement

I believe a successful television series depends on the characters first and foremost. These characters are going to be invited into the homes of our audience and I'd like them to be invited back, night after night. There are those among us who even consider television characters surrogate family members. I take this very seriously.

Second to the characters is the world that they inhabit. Once I have the characters and the inner logic of their world, then I am able to create the conflicts. The characters and the conflict within their worlds are all designed to achieve one goal, keep the audience watching. If you do not want to see what happens next then I have failed.

This is one of the reasons I love writing for television, it is a sustained seduction with an audience. So, dear reader, may WIZARDS have this dance?
