|STATUS - "In Pre-Production"|
is a 10-minute sci-fi script that shows the influence the popular 1960's
Rod Serling TV series, Twilight Zone, had on Tom Zanca's Film/TV writing career.
The concept for the script came from the rash of news reports about the
growing gene-editing abilities of scientists.
Logline: A distraught scientist known for advancing human gene editing decades ago holds his grandchildren hostage in a tense standoff with negotiators over the true implications of his work.
