This way, every dollar that we receive goes directly into the production.
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) April 30, 2013
Launching today; David Gerrold, legendary Science Fiction writer, and David C. Fein, Producer of Star Trek: The Motion Picture–The Director’s Edition have joined forces to create a new science fiction adventure series, “THE STAR WOLF.” Joining them are Producer/Writer D.C. Fontana, Design and Effects Consultant Daren R. Dochterman, Sound Designer Steve Lee, and Academy Award winner Dennis Skotak as VFX Director of Photography.
The new science fiction adventure series, based-upon Gerrold’s best-selling “THE STAR WOLF” book series–is about a crew of regular people caught up in an interplanetary war between the human race and the animalistic Morthans. Gerrold, probably best known for writing the Star Trek episode “The Trouble With Tribbles” says of the new show, “We’re finally going to make the show I’ve been dreaming about for years; a show that is compelling, thought provoking and bold enough to take on the real emotional issues of war.”
To finance the production of “THE STAR WOLF,” a crowd-funded Kickstarter campaign has been created. Executive Producer David C. Fein explains, “If we were producing this series in the network model instead of New Media, we wouldn’t have the freedom to tell the stories we want to tell. It would also cost us close to three times as much given the network overhead and/or the requirement to hire name actors to help sell the show. This way, every dollar that we receive goes directly into the production.”
All contributors to the campaign will receive exclusive Kickstarter “STAR WOLF: LAUNCH CREW” branded items, and will receive unprecedented private updates on the progress of the show from start to end.
