So you’re all reading Wynter, the comic book series.
Well, it’s time for a different perspective. As part of certain dealings with a Hollywood production company, I entrusted with the task of writing the first version of the Wynter TV pilot and to plan the series’ first season.
To write Wynter as a TV show, after and while still writing the comic book series, demanded a serious change in the way I looked at Wynter.
While every comic book has 22-23 pages, a TV episode has 45-50 minutes. The depth you can cover in TV is so much greater. You have to deal with more plots, greater depth of character, more background, more details, and more twists.
In planning the first season, I added more characters, different plot twists, a cliffhanger for the first season that I would never do in the comic book, and, oh, yes, – I planned a completely different ending to the series than the comic book.
Want a glimpse of the changes? Compare the issues you’ve read to the events in the pilot script. Below you’ll find the first two pages that include a brand new character. (And if you’ve read the series, it’ll mess with your head.)
The rest of the script is now being serialized in the New Worlds Comics Twitter account. A new page is posted every day. And when it’s all done and published, I may erase all script pages. So enjoy it while it’s there.
For now, here’s me messing with your heads:
