SCRIPTED SERIES IN DEVELOPMENT
"Lord of Misrule" | National Book Award Winner Adaptation
Created by Hennegan Bros.
Adapted from the National Book Award winner, Jaimy Gordon’s book, Lord of Misrule, the plot is set against the dusty, dark and beautiful backdrop of small-time horse racing, where trainers, grooms and grifters vie for what little luck exists, a young woman comes of age amidst the excitement, corruption and danger which threatens to swallow her whole at a rundown West Virginia racetrack.
The Hennegen Bros know the world of horse racing. They grew up in Huntington, NY, and were raised around the racetracks of New York: Belmont, Aqueduct and Saratoga as their father was an official for the New York Racing Association.
They have explored this genre with passion:
The First Saturday in May released theatrically in 2008 and available on iTunes recounts “the most exciting 2 minutes in sports”, The Kentucky Derby.
Their 7-episode Facebook Watch Series ALL IN: THE ROAD TO THE CLASSIC follows the road, pitfalls and all, to the 2018 Breeders' Cup Classic.
Show Bible available upon request.
