The Last Barbarian

At the height of his fame, Arminius is sent to occupied Germania to crush a rebellion. That’s when he realizes it’s not the people in his native land who are the “barbarians,” but the Empire that brutally represses them with rape and murder.

How far across the line are you willing to go to protect your family?
This is the story of a most relatable woman in the most extraordinary of circumstances. A story of a housewife who juggles raising three children and a marriage while carrying the darkest of secrets, only to have it surface after twenty years. It is a tense, heart-pounding thriller of a series that offers no easy answers or clear solutions.

Our Father is a darkly comic series about an identity stealing conman struggling to change his ways. Do any of us truly change over time? Are we capable of change? Or do we flatter ourselves that we’re making great strides while we’re really just running in place?
But God loves a trier, as the saying goes. The apparent Father Peter tries very hard to live the life of a good village priest. But he’s hampered by the small matter of being a self-involved psycho.
This is Banshee meets Ballykissangel suffused with the jet back humour of Love/Hate.

The Third Wave
Set six years after a virus has rampaged through Europe, turning those infected into zombie-like monsters. A cure for the virus has been found and now the cured are being re-integrated back into society. A society that largely fears and abhors them for what they did while infected. The cured can remember everything that they did while they were infected. We follow two friends, Senan, and Conor, as they are released from quarantine. Senan is welcomed back by his remaining family, though he carries a dark secret, while Conor is rejected by his and becomes disenfranchised and powerfully subversive.
