Shift is a one-hour scripted television drama series that reveals the inner workings of the world of conflict resolution. In the same way The West Wing showed us how the sausage is made behind the scenes in the White House, Shift reveals the often hidden world of conflict transformation. This series is dramatically compelling, culturally rich and truly meaningful to our lives.
How Well Developed is This Project?
Shift has traveled far on the road of development. We have three complete one-hour scripts and additional treatments for 13 episodes, with hundreds of additional conflict scenarios you will find compelling. We are ready to launch into production, given the right talent pool and studio connections. We believe producing this trailer will put us over the top and give us what we need to demonstrate what we can do to the right people.
What is Portrayed in the Trailer?
The trailer showcases one of our lead characters, Ray Gopaul, who is an African-American former Marine and Viet Nam veteran. Ray is a consummate mediator and an ace crisis negotiator. He gravitates to the edgy, dangerous realms of conflict, working with street gangs, murderers and civil war combatants. He’s always pushing the envelope, testing the comfort zone of his colleagues and his clients.
In the trailer, Ray initiates work on a case that screams scandal from the headlines. He throws himself into this case, which is universally believed to be hopeless. In the trailer, you will see how Ray shifts a defendant found guilty of a heinous crime toward a willingness to participate in Restorative Justice as part of the sentencing phase of his trial.
