Development Pitch

Israel, 9th-century BC. A time of great religious and political turmoil, when those who oppose the murderous queen Jezebel are ruthlessly hunted down and killed. The prophet Elijah is her chief target. Not only has he has publicly denounced her, but deployed his prophetic powers to afflict her entire kingdom with drought! So far, he has managed to stay one step ahead of Jezebel’s assassins, but her latest death threat has prompted him to take flight into the desert, just after he has called down fire from Heaven to kill 400 of her followers! Meanwhile, the king’s own bodyguard is deeply divided in its loyalties. The cruel Benaiah, who falls under Jezebel’s seductive spell, is the chief henchman in her schemes, while Eleazar, though junior in rank, dares to defy him to protect the prophet. The original story is spectacular enough, as Elijah wields the elements of nature, raises the dead, calls down fire on his enemies, but this reinvention adds new mythological threads, new plotlines, new characters, including a sisterhood of shapeshifting raven goddesses who bring their night-time comforts to Elijah in the moonlit woods of Cherith Brook. Among them is the lovely maiden Adina, whom no man has “known” before she appears. She becomes Elijah’s main love interest and pivotal as events unfold. Cunning as Elijah is, and even with all his miracle-wielding talent, he will need her! Meanwhile, Elijah’s main ally is a great angel named Abdiel, who can also shapeshift into a man.
