Coming in 2019:
NINTH STEP STATION
I've been working on this project with Serial Box Publishing since February, and I'm very excited that we can finally talk about it publicly! Malka Older came up with a great premise for a near-future police procedural and assembled a great creative team including Fran Wilde, Jacqueline Koyanagi, and myself to write a 10-episode season.
Here's our "saga sell," in case you can't read the images above:
A local cop. A US peacekeeper. A divided Tokyo.
Years of disaster and conflict have left Tokyo split between great powers.
In the city of drone-enforced borders, body-mod black markets, and desperate resistance movements, US peacekeeper Emma Higashi is assigned to partner with Tokyo Metropolitan Police Detective Miyako Koreda.
Together, they must race to solve a series of murders that test their relationship and threaten to overturn the balance of global power. And amid the chaos, they each need to decide what they are willing to do for peace.
For more background, see this tweet-thread from our fearless leader Malka!
