Sasha TV Update...

Hey Folks,

Quite some time ago, I shared the awesome news that the Sasha Jackson Mysteries had been optioned for development as a TV series.  I haven’t said much about it since that original announcement way back when, and many of you have been asking about the status, so here’s an update...

In short, the TV world is a world of “hurry up and wait”!  I’m okay with that because it’s still progress, albeit slow-moving progress.  And you know what they say:  No news is good news. 

Initially, the Sasha Jackson PI books were optioned for development by Lock and Load Productions.  A short while later, Lock and Load signed an agreement for an option to shop with Nightingale Productions.  

Together, they sought and found people to join in on the project, people such as a show-runner and a head writer, etc. etc. etc.  I like the team they've put together - but I can't give names just yet... suffice to say, they have good cred!   

Once that was accomplished, the team put together a package to present to the TV Folks.  What’s happening now is that Nightingale (in tandem with Lock and Load) have been shopping the series, which means they have been meeting with, and pitching it to, various broadcasters. 

Early feedback re: the pitches has been quite positive, but nothing definite has been established... yet, sigh...   The motto for the time being is “cautious optimism”. 

I really hope to have more news soon.  Trust me, as soon as I know anything definite - anything at all,  I’ll be shouting it from the highest rooftops!  It would be so cool to see Sasha and her gang on television!

Stay tuned... Jill
