Development Pitch

Full of wit, humor, and dire stakes, THE DEFENDERS OF DEMBROCH is a trilogy fit for young adults and lovers of fantasy adventure. Like Hogwarts and Narnia before it, viewers will fall in love with Dembroch and dream of visiting. A character of its own, Dembroch invites readers and viewers alike with dazzling magic, monsters, and mystery. And yet, a story is made by its heroes, and the defenders are front and center. Leading man, Nick, is the underdog from a small town, with aspirations to fight for something bigger than himself. He's accompanied by childhood friends Clay (the gutsy fighter), Jenn (the pessimist and foot-dragger), and Meghan (the impatient, prickly stepsister). The friends find allies in the quirky, brave citizens of Dembroch and face deliciously evil, engrossing villains like Sorgana the witch, the Demon Queen, and the King's Killer. Through their struggles in each book, the defenders discover the courage to fight for what's right, and viewers will hear messages about growing old but not growing up, and the importance of country, companionship, and courage. Fully written at three novels, The Defenders of Dembroch is suited for a limited tv series of about three seasons. Each story lends itself to episode-ending twists, cliffhangers, but also three well-rounded stories that have clear resolution that will stick with viewers. The Defenders of Dembroch is an instant classic with the mystery of Pirates of the Caribbean and the awe of Sword and the Stone.
