We recently acquired the TV rights for Union Dues, a superhero series by Jeffrey DeRego. I am a producer who just finished the television series Monk, and my partner is Exec Prod of visual effects at the Toronto based Intelligent Creatures.
We are currently putting together a pitch for Union Dues, and are seeking new concept artists with a passion for superhero characterizations. Pencil art, 3d work, etc. This is intended as a live-action series, and you will be credited with your work in the presentation.
A little about the project:
Union Dues is a superhero story series combining the morally gray world of Watchmen, the ensemble melodrama and overlapping story lines of Lost, and the superhero action of X-men.
Created by Jeffrey R. DeRego, the Union Dues literary podcasts have already generated a base of nearly ONE MILLION fans and have gained critical acclaim amongst the independent literary community.
A new website is currently being built, but a bit more about the project, including our press release, can be found here.
To contact us, please email mail[at]1-800-go-union[dot]comI haven't heard anything since, but it's exciting to think about. I'd love to talk to someone involved in the project. Apparently, Darren Bell hired concept artists who’ve worked on Farscape and "Fallout."
