Author Alan Holman's Microcosm

BANANA CHAN, a series of TV scripts by Alan Holman.

Set in a fictional town called Rain, which is on the coast, and said to be somewhere near Tokyo, Banana Chan is the story of a girl named is Lacy, who prefers to be called Banana because her favourite author is Banana Y________. (She never mentions any specific Y________ works within the story.) She deals with adolescence and young adulthood, while weird and strange circumstances surround her.

July 15th, 2018 - If you've read the scripts on this site about a week ago, you were treated to an alternate time-line version of the story. That version was much newer than what's currently on the site, but that version was also much shorter. I recently put back up the 36 script version which is the most complete version of this story in existence. You may have noticed that the shorter version had some original scenes that would also work in this version. So I'm thinking that I'll gradually add those scenes to this version, and I'll gradually add more scenes, to make each script 30 pages rather than the roughly 22 pages which each script currently is. When they're 30 pages each, I'll remove the "commercial break" direction from each of the scripts. Doing that changes which markets I can potentially pitch this project to, but I feel that it'll give me an opportunity to strengthen the story in many ways. The completion of that errand will take quite a long time to gradually develop, because I don't write nearly as often as I used to write, and of course at any point any producer is welcome to greenlight this project ... as long as you let me know!
