summer specials

I very much like the idea of doing "specials," little short stories that would take place between the seasons of Remnants. I very admittedly got the idea from Doctor Who, a fantastic show that has had a history of doing Christmas specials (as well as other national and bank holidays). Sometimes the shows set-up the next season or introduce a new character that will come back later. Other times they're just fun one-shot stories.

Remnants is a pretty serious, dramatic thriller of a show. It might be nice to have little moments in between the seasons that contribute to the overall story but are generally lighter in tone -- dare I say "fun?"

I've already written the first one, a three-part love story involving messengers (in the tradition of Pheidippides). Now it's all about finding the right time to shoot it.
