MELVILLE – TV show?

You can finally watch my latest short MELVILLE online:

MELVILLE from James M. Johnston on Vimeo.

In other news, there is a chance MELVILLE could become a TV show.  Of course, that’s very tentative.  I have a series and pilot treatment ready to go.  SMAC Entertainment, headed by Michael Strahan and Constance Schwartz-Morini, are on board and WME is working with them to help make it happen.

But first, I have to do some more work on the pitch and find a show runner to help me develop it further.  The show runner part is important, that person completes the package and makes the project worth picking up for development by a network (i.e. any company distributing TV shows, be it broadcast or digital.)

So, there’s a long way to go.

Here’s what the trades had to say:
