Science Fiction Novel Series Gets Live-Action Treatment. Andrew Beery’s popular series of novels known as, “The Catherine Kimbridge Chronicles” is being adapted for television and the Producers are utilizing Crowd-Funding as one of the ways to make it happen.
“2067 was the year I died for the first time… It was painful. Had I known how often I’d be expected to die over the next several millennia, I might have made a stronger effort to stay dead.”
Those few sentences set the tone for the first adventure. The novels are a pure Science Fiction series following the adventures of a future “Horatio Hornblower” style character called “Admiral ‘Cat’ Catherine Kimbridge” It’s a SciFi adventure series that is chock-full of real-world cutting edge science ranging from VASMR drives powered by liquid fluorine thorium reactors to entangled quantum communications. Add in a six legged cybernetic dog with a passion for chocolate and anything can happen. Producer (and twin brother to Andrew) Peter Beery has put a strong team together to develop the project for television. Veteran Film-Maker and Award-Winning Visual Effects Supervisor Kevin VanHook (I, Robot, I am Number Four, Olympus Has Fallen) will adapt the first novel— writing and directing the pilot. Actor Alexis Cruz (Stargate, Drag Me to Hell) is attached and is currently narrating the AUDIO BOOK version of the first novel. Heather Harris (Star Trek: Into Darkness) is also attached to the project. The team has already put together a short proof-of-concept video (Showcasing Heather Harris in the role of Cat) to use in the early stages of pitching Networks and Sales Agents.
