Project Summary

One of several horror anthology segments that director Dale Fabrigar and Suzanne DeLaurentiis Productions produced for a TV pilot being pitched to Netflix and other streaming services. Dale and Suzanne knew they wanted a piece about a fortune teller, but that's as far as it went. They gave me creative freedom to come up with the rest.

The story features mysticism, betrayal, and murder: friends Jen and Christine visit Lady Talia, a renowned spiritualist, to get their fortunes read... but the session turns dark as Lady Talia pulls tarot cards from a deck and explains that one of the friends will die unless a terrible secret is revealed.

 

Having grown up in the 1970s, I was admittedly a bit star struck by Sally Struthers. She was gracious and professional—and funny—throughout the process.
