FWS News Flash: Holy Shit! Captain Power is Coming Back?!
In our new story, however, the Power Suits themselves are seen as another variation of thinking machines, linking completely to the human system of its wearer. More than ever, Phoenix Rising explores life and death issues, issues of what makes humanity different, or better or worse, than thinking machines? We explore the issues first introduced 25 years ago, in what we thought was a “scifi adventure” based on a world that could not really be. 25 years later we see we were close to the future than we thought (hopefully not the apocalyptic part), and so we decided to lock our story into the real events that are transpiring now.
Phoenix Rising will be drawing from the current military's extensive use of combat drones, and the new show's producers are not calling Phoenix Rising sci-fi, but 'predictive fiction', and that is not likely to be set in the 22nd century, but closer to our time....and no, the Bio-Dreads will not be back. Phoenix Rissing could be an interesting show, if done correctly, and this new 60 minute series will not be aimed at kid's, but more like people my age.
FWS will keep on top of this story....oh, and POWER ON!
