Sci-Fi adventure and documentary hybrid series

3 x  96 mins otherwise available as 6x 48 min episodes.


An epic sci-fi adventure packed with special effects and action unfolds… until we’re carried through a wormhole to a parallel universe.

In that universe, producers are funding the production of the story from the first universe – but their universe is imploding in a cash crunch related to the globall effects of the Wall Street Meltown of 2007 .  Thus footage intended for a “making of” inintentionally becomes the backbone of the ultimate “unmaking of”.

Meltdown reveals an unseen side of show-biz: indie producers in the murky worlds of international film finance; the dealing, and the double-dealing, fighting, broadcasters crashing; and individuals who throw their life’s savings into the show,at risk of losing it all.  A Caribbean resort becomes collateral and death threats fly.

This is both a true-life outrageous behind-the-scenes ride and (in the other universe) the ultimate fictional story mash-up, creating from bits and pieces a full Episodes One and two of the unshot sci-fi series Ice Planet. Fashioned from tests, animated storyboards, complete and unfinished special effects, cast read-throughs, fight and action tests, casting tapes and every element from pre-production, Meltdown brings to life the story that would have been. “It’s the best TV series never made.”
