(Updated for COVID! The interest in this story may be less than before the COVID lock-downs occurred, but it's still a strong tale of the main character's "Cassandra Complex" in trying to warn the world of what is to come. And, the Mawr Pneumonica in this story is over 1000 times deadlier than COVID.)

Tales of world-wide pandemics, and the people who try to survive them, are a staple of Hollywood. They are as varied as Stephen King’s recently-remade “The Stand”, or more grounded takes on the subject such as “Contagion” and “Outbreak”.

This heroine-driven apocalyptic drama trilogy is suitable for theatrical releases or a six-part cable mini-series. These grounded stories cover 30 years of chronological time, and focus on the real issues of H5N1 and an avian-borne pandemic.
