Watch Episode 1 Of Keith Josef Adkins' New SciFi Series 'The Abandon'

21 December 2012 8:56 AM, PST | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Here's the pilot episode for awarding-winning playwright and screenwriter Keith Josef Adkins' sci-fi series called The Abandon. You may recall Keith's intro post over the summer, when he was trying to raise funds for the project... I thought I'd let him speak for himsef about The Abandon, as well as his motivation for making it; here's an excerpt: Although shows like Battlestar Galactica and the short-lived The 4400 intrigue and entertain, the amount of black and brown representation [in sci-fi] are usually limited. And no, side-kicks and color-blind casting are not sufficient representation. I love sci-fi. I particularly like sci-fi that explores alien invasions. Ridley Scott’s Alien is one of my favorite films and I can watch it every day and never get bored. In my opinion, the film has the perfect mix of a singular alien encounter and the expendability of human life, all played out in that final...

'The Abandon' - A Sci-Fi TV Series (5 Black Men Learn They May Be The Last Humans On Earth)

My name is Keith Josef Adkins. I’m a so-called awarding-winning playwright and screenwriter. I receive more awards than I actually get productions, but hey, you can’t have everything, Lol. I worked as a TV writer for the hit comedy Girlfriends with Tracee Ellis Ross and Golden Brooks and developed a few TV projects, including the adaptation of an urban novel called The Adventures of Sam Black with Maya Films (makers of Serena with Jenifer Lopez). A few years ago I had this idea for a sci-fi TV series called The Abandon. A series that places five black men and one black woman at the center of an alien invasion. Although shows like Battlestar Galactica and the short-lived The 4400 intrigue and entertain, the amount of black and brown representation are usually limited. And no, side-kicks and color-blind casting are not sufficient representation. I love sci-fi. I particularly like sci-fi that explores alien invasions. »
