7 Great Independent Pilots from SeriesFest We Hope Become TV Series
The world of independent television is pretty chaotic right now, largely because, unlike the indie film scene, there’s no clear trajectory to success. Some shows threw all their money into shooting a pilot. Some shows have shot multiple episodes. Some shows have found alternate distribution opportunities already. Some shows remain unseen. All of them, though, want to go beyond their current status.

As an attendee of SeriesFest 2016, I had the opportunity to see a large percentage of the pilots screened as part of the independent pilot competition. Some of these pilots were not world premieres, but all of the ones I saw represented the impressive state of independent production today; where a shoestring budget can still produce content on a level equal to what you might watch on TV. Below are just a few of the pilots that impressed me most,

Being Erica is a heartfelt journey to a satisfying catharsis

Being Erica

Created by Jane Sinyor

Aired on CBC from 2009-2011

Have you ever wished you could turn back time? Of course you have- who among us could honestly answer otherwise? We all have moments we regret in our lives, those tiny little mistakes that gnaw at us from their fabled place in the past. What if you could eliminate them, though, erasing them and replacing them with decisions that your hindsight assures you would have been the better course of action? Would you? And if you would, how do you imagine these events would change your situation in the present day? These are the myriad of questions proposed by Being Erica, a Canadian series that centers around a troubled 30-something who enters into a sort of metaphysical therapy after being approached by a mysterious therapist.

When the series opens, Erica Strange is in pretty rough shape. She’s been fired from her job,

The Portal, Riftworld Chronicles and fan support

Here's how short fantasy film The Portal, starring Tahmoh Penikett, was turned into TV series Riftworld Chronicles...

A not so very long time ago, in this galaxy, in those geeky communities where the card-carrying members of the geek clubs congregate, a trailer was making its rounds for a certain short film. Entitled The Portal,” it starred Tahmoh Penikett (of Supernatural and Battlestar Galactica fame, thus upping the geek factor some more) and promised an intriguing premise: the dimension-travelling wizard Alar (played by the aforementioned Penikett) accidentally ends up in our magic-less, technology-full world, and attempts to navigate it. Hilarity, naturally, ensues. Fans watched the trailer, shared, liked, commented, and demanded, when do we get to see the damn thing?

Tempers grew. Frustrated keysmashes occurred. The question was repeated again and again. Supernatural aired some more episodes with Penikett, and everyone wanted to see the charming and adorably clueless Alar battle

When Hayden Panettiere gets her Nashville scripts, she reads them first as a fan, and then as an actor. “I don’t connect myself with the character immediately. Initially, it’s ‘Oh, my gosh, Juliette, you idiot! Are you kidding me?’”
