Development Pitch

LYDIA’S LEAGUE OF ANGELS begins by introducing why a 2,000-year-old war between, two female historical figures and supernatural powers has raged. We meet a current day Saint, Lydia of Thyatira, who was a faithful and devoted follower of Jesus, possibly the first feminist. In our fictional journey, God grants Lydia and female descendants, a League of Angels, and a mission to protect women and children. Then we meet Jezebel, the evilest Queen to have lived during Biblical times, a murderer of disciples and idol worshipper. We expand her story as Jezebel blames Lydia’s spread of Christianity for her forthcoming death and decrees her descendants and a Demon Dynasty unleash their wrath on Lydia’s descendants and God’s Eves’ with the goal of spreading sex crimes to pandemic levels. LYDIA’S LEAGUE OF ANGELS heroines are Southern girls, flesh and blood women who must choose career or mission and confront specific sex crimes while trying to live normal lives, that include love interests. Although individually unique, their superpowers are faith, a sixth sense for angels and demons and physical astuteness. Our antagonists, Jezebels descendants, European, masters of disguise and deceit, hide in the shadows to create havoc in the heroines’ lives, master martial arts and orchestrate evil against women and children. A fictional journey, laced with romance, mystery and reality (events ripped from headlines), to expand on Lydia’s and Jezebels legacy through their descendants.

About The Author

S.G. Savage first realized her love of writing upon winning a state essay-writing competition during high school. She felt compelled to read every book she could get her hands on, from the classics to the top ten New York Times best sellers, including the Bible. Although her dream was to become an accomplished journalist, upon completing her degree she felt called to a career in nonprofit and social work dedicated to the advancement of women and girls. But the plight of abused women and children continued to overwhelm her, and after much research, prayer, and conviction, Lydia’s League of Angels was born. Savage is a strong believer that recreational reading can also raise spiritual and social consciousness and create awareness. Storytelling is in my blood. My Appalachian heritage stimulated this desire and I immersed it with my passion for improving the status of women and children during my 25-year career. My journalism, research, serial reading, and speech writing contributed to my expertise in creating stories with a purpose. Lydia's League of Angels was written “for the screen,” that was my full intention. My goal was to create a work of living art that sheds light on a dark subject, sex crimes against women and children. By weaving in the wonder of God’s love, angels, demons, miracles, love stories, and real stories amongst fiction, these themes become palatable. I hope this series will pave the way for future writers, actors, and Producers to reach beyond “niche” audiences with such stories as Lydia’s League of Angels. Rather, realizing main characters functioning in God’s Universe does not make it simply “faith based,” but provides entertainment for believers and non-believers, just as in “The Passion,” “Moses” and even “Sister Act.” Especially since the stories are reality and fantasy based.
