The character Elizabeth in the paranormal thriller is not for an actress who is of faint of heart when it comes to digging deep and facing her own shadow. Elizabeth is a soul, who incarnated too quickly. In doing so, she brought the anger, betrayal, and need for revenge that she felt in her previous life back with her. Although she doesn’t consciously remember the past, it has been actively, poisoning her present life. Distrustful of others and her own emotions, Elizabeth only comes emotionally alive within the novels she writes. Although she is cold and distant with most, she is a good and loyal friend to those few she does trust enough to call friend, which is how she found herself agreeing to teach a writing class at an obscure Michigan college.
 
Arriving in Coyote Springs, Elizabeth instantly regrets her decision, but she is honor bound to see it through. The old memories begin to surface as people and places seem familiar, bringing with them the rage that was spawned by the betrayal. By the time, she realized what it is happening it is too late to run. She has come face to face with the woman who murdered her daughter and the spirit of her dead child, who has been trapped in their home for decades. Will she be able to reclaim the love and forgive so that her daughter’s spirit be freed or will her need for revenge damn them all?
 
Never Can Say Good-bye is a paranormal thriller that intertwines the past and the present to create an innovative spin on the ghostly genre.

Cosmos Productions Studio will be digital film and television production facility that will produce low to medium budgeted film, television, and documentary projects as well as music videos, commercials and industrial films. Initially a one sound stage studio, the five year plan is to expanded it to a four sound stage facility and distribution hub for the domestic, foreign, and ancillary markets. Whereas the large established studios focus on producing big budget projects, Cosmos Productions Studio will go back to the concept of producing low to medium budgeted projects that spread the financial risk among many projects. One hundred fifty million can produce one tent pole film or produce and distribute 20 low to medium budget projects. It is the difference between one role of the dice and mitigating the risk by spreading it across 20. Within that financial pool of films some will fail, some will breakeven, but some will make a profit.

Cosmos Productions Studio proposes combine the best of the old school with the modern technologies to create a more financially stable business model. Based on the concept originally created by D. W. Griffith, Charlie Chaplin, Mary Pickford, and Douglas Fairbanks with United Artists, Cosmos Productions Studio intents to once again pull together the talent of producers, directors, actors, and crew, who want to take back their independence by having more financial and creative control of their careers. By working together and combining their skills, they will be able to produce and distribute projects that are based on diversity of gender, age and ethnic backgrounds. Women and minorities will gain equality in the industry by achieving strong leadership and decision making roles. It is this inclusive business model that will attract the creatives with good business sense.

First year projects:

Comparable to Ghost and The Others, Never Can Say Good-bye is a paranormal thriller with the tagline, “When love is forever, death is only the beginning.”

Sara Jane and Randolph met and fell in love as children. Several years older, Randolph went to work for her father, James. Determined to give Sara Jane the same standard of life, Randolph did the unthinkable. Claiming a large track of old growth forest for himself, instead of James, he became a pariah in the community. Only Sarah Jane and her mother stood by him. James actively worked against him by persuading the Michigan mills not to buy his logs. James’ revenged backfired when Randolph found alternative markets for his timber, which brought higher profits than anyone expected. Enraged. James forbid the marriage. Loving each other more than they feared him, they eloped. As their happiness grew, so did his hatred, which cascaded into series of events that caused Sara Jane’s death and the murder of his grandchild. Before Randolph could exact his revenge, he too was murdered

Their souls quickly returned to live in new bodies. Their conscious minds had been wiped clean, but the past remained festering in their subconscious. When the fates with a little help from the living bring them together all of their lives are thrown onto a dangerous collision course from which they can neither run or hide.

Never Can Say Good-bye tells the parallel storylines of the past and the present as the reincarnated souls are forced to decide between forgiveness and seeking the revenge they were denied in the past.

Horses and Heroes is an unscripted TV series, which combines the highly effective Peer Support Therapy with Equine Therapy. Unlike most in the genre, it will focus on healing and positive growth rather than endorsing bad behavior. Each season will bring together veterans from WWII to the current conflicts. They will be sharing their challenges and supporting each other as they find new solutions to their physical and emotional challenges. They know the talk, because they have walked the walk. They see the dodges and will be able to call each other on them. Sparks may fly. Tempers may flare, especially when they force each other to face their ghosts. But there will also be laughter and fun as they rebuild the comradery, which kept them safe and strong. The snarkiness and practical jokes between the branches doesn’t simply end. There is always room for just one more. When it airs, it will reach into the homes of the veterans, who need to hear that they are not alone, and give them information as well as permission they need to also heal. They will help each other find their way back to the world. Veterans can’t go back and make a brand new start; but they can start from now and make a brand new end.

With the tagline, “When a mother eats her own, no one is safe,” Eye of Ra compares to The Exorcist and Amityville Horror.

Katherine was born with the power to control the elements. Her whistle called the winds. Her tears refreshed the earth. She was able to see into the realms where fools and angels fear to tread. Her daughter, Sandra, was born with gifts that were complimentary—or they should have been. Sandra had the ability to nurture and heal. Her gifts gave her the ability to see and heal others’ pain. She could foresee their destinies and give them the courage to embrace their futures Yet, it was not enough. Sandra wanted more more direct control over the world and the realms beyond. When her daughters’ developed the gifts she craved, Sandra’s envy turned to hatred. When a voice from the dark void reached out and asked, “What would you do to have their power. Sandra replied, “Whatever it takes.”

Kidnapped as a child, Rikki is forced to defend her life from her envious mother, who is more than willing to kill to steal her spiritual gifts. When Rikki escapes, Sandra turns her attention onto others, who are more vulnerable. Can Rikki find the strength and courage to once again face her mother and stop her or will Sandra use Rikki’s guilt to weaken her to the point that she is unable save herself or anyone else?

A scripted television series, Operation Home Base combines the best of MASH, The Waltons, and NCIS to create a family of man drama about forgiveness and second chances.

A medic in the U.S Army, Martin Flying Crow returned from Vietnam a wounded soul, who was haunted by the ghosts and the guilt of his own actions. He quickly learned that there were more like him than the nation wanted to acknowledge. Unable to heal his own wounds, Flying Crow vowed to help other veterans find the peace he never expected to find for himself. Through a series of coincidences several others joined his crusade and expanded it. Through their combined efforts, Operation Home Bases legally becomes a non-profit organization that moves out of Martin’s garage and into an old shop. When Pat Bogley asks them to learn the truth of his son’s disappearance while on a routine patrol in Afghanistan, their inquires led them dangerously close to exposing a truth that many powerful people at home and abroad would do whatever it takes to keep hidden. When slander and threats do not deter Operation Home Base, Valhalla is created to offer unlimited financial and logistical support. Valhalla’s generous offer will either be the carrot to divert the investigation or the stick to destroy Operation Home Base from the inside out.

The second year slate would include the second seasons of both televisions series, plus two of the following features.

To listen to part one go to http://www.blogtalkradio.com/theresachaze/2012/06/14/until-you-walk-the-path-you-wont-know-where-it

Most new shows what I call chip beef-chippies in bikinis and beef cake.  They are designed to titillate the 19-45 year olds nothing more.  According to the networks this is how you gain the attention of this prized demographic group.  If you show them gratuitous sex and violence they will watch.  If you are younger or older than this age group, the executives see you as valueless and they refuse to program for these groups.

However, what this same execs don’t understand is that even their cherished targeted audience want characters they can relate to and plots that make sense. Further more, it is the older audience, the ones who originally made TV successful, who now control the family budgets.  But they are the ones who remember what TV was from the beginning and know how good it can be.  They won’t settle for crap.

The tall and the short of it is that the money people have taken over the entertainment industry.  They are looking to make the quick buck instead of focusing on quality entertainment.  NBC has come to mean No Brain Content.  ABC means Almost Brainless Content. CBS did meant Containing Brains Sometimes.  However, after the new shows CBS put out, they will have to be reclassified.  They did something I didn’t think ever could happen; they made Tom Selleck look bad.  I’m not saying this just because I want him to star in my military series, Operation Home Base–even though that is still true.  CBS knew the series was bad from the beginning; it is the reason they buried it on Friday night.  Blue Bloods could do poorly and the network could blame it on the day instead of the quality of the program.

It is also a simple fact that any new voices with fresh ideas aren’t welcomed in the industry.  Those who do make it past the gate find that they aren’t welcomed and more often than not the insiders take their new ideas and show the creators to the door.  I was offered 5  million for my military series, Operation Home Base.  I would have been give creator credit and shown the door.  It turned it down.  I wasn’t going to allow “the experienced producers and writers” turn my family of man drama, which combined the humor and drama of MASH with family and sense of community  of Little House on the Prairie into chip beef–and we all know what the other name for chip beef is.   OHB will be done right or it won’t be done at all, which will to bad because it is unique.  It will make the viewers laugh and cry, but more importantly they won’t feel like they just wasted an hour of their life.
