By | Success Stories

Breathers

Script Pipeline industry partners Marty Berneman, Eric Balfour, and Stephanie Varella (Off the Grid Entertainment) are representing the TV project Breathers, a sci-fi/drama written by Will Wallace and based on the comic by Justin Madson.

A top 10 finalist in the 2011 Script Pipeline TV Writing Competition, Breathers is a uniquely surreal story set in a dystopian future where the air is no longer safe to breathe. The pilot was introduced to Off the Grid in early 2014 by Pipeline Director of Development Matt Misetich.

“After I was a finalist in the TV Writing contest, Script Pipeline held on to my script and was instrumental in getting it into the hands of excited producers several years later,” said Will, who is actively writing additional feature and TV material.
