Fifty Original Scripts - post author Don

On the Unproduced Scripts page we have over fifty original works across all genres. Among them, what caught my eye was The Werewolves of World War Two by Aaron. This is an action/horror period piece that chronicles the adventures of a pack of allied werewolves into the heart of Germany to battle the Third Reich. (pdf format).

And Steven has his followup feature to his series Better Days. You can listen to the first six episodes here. Famous, Rich & Beautiful (pdf format) has two documentary filmmakers follow a former TV star on his day to day life and get more than they bargained for.

Check out there and more on the Unproduced Scripts page. – Don
