This One-Hour Drama Pitch Deck for “The Village” outlines a music-themed TV series. Telling the story of how Greenwich Village evolved from a traditional Italian neighborhood to the center of a cultural revolution.
The great thing about this project is that John Sebastian, singer of The Loving Spoonful, is intimately involved. The songs you may have heard most are, “Do You Believe in Magic?” and “Summer in the City.” Their nickname in the sixties was “The American Beatles.” Therefore, The Lovin’ Spoonful was central to the Woodstock generation. And John, who grew up in The Village, lends hundreds of fascinating and funny stories. His anecdotes are vibrant and energetic from when life was about sex, pot, music, and growing up.
The One-Hour Drama Pitch Deck for “The Village” portrays a show similar in tone to other music-themed productions such as “Vinyl” and “Almost Famous.”
I had a ton of fun working on this with, my now dear friend, Robert Baruc, the indie film producer. I love working with old album covers as inspiration and photos from the early 60s. And lastly, receiving words of praise from a Woodstock icon feels pretty good too.
