Exclusive: Movie Networks is to produce a new drama series based on the novels Conspiracy 365 by writer Gabrielle Lord.
Part-action thriller, mystery, and romance, Conspiracy 365 is a series of novels for teenagers released as 12 books each titled after the months of a year.
The series has all the signs of a “junior 24.”
Teen fugitive Callum Ormond has been warned that he has just 365 days to solve the truth about his family’s secret.
On New Year’s Eve he is chased down a street by a seemingly crazed man with a deadly warning for him.
“They killed your father. They’re killing me. They’ll kill you. You must survive the next 365 days!” says the tagline.
The fast-moving narrative works as a race against time, with cliff-hangers, mystery, intrigue and danger.
To be produced by Linda Klejus (Blue Heelers) and Ann Darrouzet (Snake Tales, Horace & Tina, Holly’s Heroes), the 12 x 1 hr series will begin filming in June with a lengthy 24 week shoot. Casting is currently underway.
Two of Lord’s previous books became Fortress (1986) and the telemovie Whipping Boy (1996).
The series is tipped to premiere in 2012 on Family Movie Channel.
Publishers Kane Miller have also released a YouTube trailer as part of the marketing for the novels:
