THE STORY



Without warning, the entire island of Manhattan is covered by a clear, impermeable bubble, scooped up by a fleet of spacecraft and flown into the cargo bay of the mother of all motherships.


But for what purpose?  Are they friendly?  Will they attack?

Are we part of an alien scientific experiment or some kind

of cosmic zoo exhibit?


Or... are we just tonight's dinner?



ABOUT THE SERIES

Inspired by John E. Stith's acclaimed novel, hailed with a prestigious Hugo Award Honorable Mention, "Manhattan Transfer" unveils a thrilling odyssey of survival, exploration, and the indomitable spirit of humanity in the face of the unknown.


This series promises exciting, thought-provoking science fiction at its best!

MEET THE CAST

When I first picked up John Stith's novel "Manhattan Transfer," I immediately fell in love with it!  It is science fiction at its best - the perfect "what if?" scenario full of a sense of wonder like few other novels I read.

I immediately thought this would make an excellent science fiction series.  However, at the time, broadcast and cable shows were off limits to "outsider" independent producers like me.  So, I put it on a back burner, but I still revisited the possibilities of creating this series from time to time.

Fast forward to today, where there are countless cable channels and streaming services.  And the one thing they all have in common - they need programming!

So, now is the perfect time to bring "Manhattan Transfer" to life!  There are so many stories to tell with a premise like this: how vastly disparate people can come to work together, utilizing science and creativity to solve what will be a nearly impossible scenario.  Can people put aside their differences for a common goal? Can they put aside their own needs for the needs of the many?  And can they function as a society when their society collapses?

These are just some of the captivating questions that we will be exploring in this series.
