It's always nice to see when Hollywood hasn't forgotten about us. Today is no exception as Amazon just purchased the Pilot script for a historical drama set in Iowa.
For those of you unfamiliar with the process, Amazon allows writers to pen and promote scripts on their site. When those scripts pique the interest of Amazon's creators, they have the option to purchase the script and produce the first episode. If the pilot episode does well, then the first season of the show moves toward production.
That's what local author and entrepreneur, Matt Davenport, is hoping for at least. Davenport is a self-proclaimed Assistant Self-Publisher. Through his company, Davenport Writes, LLC, he helps authors get their books professional level publication without all of the rigors of learning the different ecosystems and markets.
That was how he first heard of Amazon's script service. From there, he says, it was simply a matter of writing out the first episode.
"The Golden Fields came to me after watching a rerun of Downton Abbey," he explained. "The idea behind it was to explore the rigors of settling Iowa and turning it into the national bread-basket it is while the characters suffer the hardships that go with it."
Those hardships, of course, include industrialization, growing demand, and the 1929 stock market crash, to name a few. According to Davenport, the first episode takes place one year before the historical economic downturn.
"It wasn't enough to write the episode," said Davenport. "The whole group of writers tries to help each other out. When the script was optioned by Amazon, the only caveat we put in there was that only Iowa writers could write episodes of the first season."
This is wonderful news for Iowa writers, especially for those within his writing group.
The Golden Fields will be available on Amazon in July of 2017. If you're interested in being a writer for this show, you can reach out to Matt Davenport through his website at davenportwrites.com

    whale spotted in illinois river A humpback whale was spotted near Morris IL in the Illinois River today. The sighting comes just days after 2 Great White Sharks were seen frolicking in the same area. While not impossible, it does seem unlikely. It is thought that the whale may have followed the sharks as they sometimes do in the wild. The whale would of had to travel over 1250 miles to get to this location. The Marine Biologist Association will be in town for a full investigation. Until we have answers, we are asking folks to keep their pontoons and fishing boats docked.

    two great white sharks found swimming in mississippi river near saint louis, missouri. While it is not entirely impossible, it is incredibly uncommon for salt water dwelling creatures to stay for lengthy periods of time in fresh water. However, two Great White Sharks have managed to survive the trip and make their way up the Mississippi River somehow. Believed to have started as a mating couple, the two are assumed to have swam the 920 mile journey from the mouth of the Mississippi River that is connected to the Gulf Of Mexico. Officials in Saint Louis have contacted the Missouri Conservation Department and will likely have a team in the river soon to capture the two lost sharks.
