TV series based on controversial new book planned


Positive reader reviews and public response have prompted a New Zealand father-and-son writing and filmmaking team to bring forward plans to develop their controversial new book about conspiracy theories into a television documentary series.


Lance and James Morcan, who are also novelists and screenwriters, co-wrote The Orphan Conspiracies: 29 Conspiracy Theories from The Orphan Trilogy, which was released on Amazon earlier this year. It's their eighth book title and first non-fiction book to be published by Sterling Gate Books.


Such has been reader response to the book, the Morcans have put it into early development as a TV documentary series with their film production company Morcan Motion Pictures.


As the book’s title suggests, it covers 29 conspiracy theories highlighted in their international conspiracy thriller series, The Orphan Trilogy.


Sydney-based James Morcan says he and his father are delighted by readers' enthusiasm for the book and by the early reviews.


“We never intended to progress the TV doco series so soon after the book’s publication,” he says, “but reader response has encouraged us to fast-forward our plans.”


James, who has a long-time interest in conspiracy theories, says the book lends itself to a TV series. “It fully explores the real-world suppositions, assumptions and theories we included in our fictional series and provides answers to the questions our readers have been asking.”


Conspiracy theories explored range from false flag operations, international banksters, genius techniques of the elite and suppressed science to the Queen’s invisible riches, the Medical Industrial Complex and real-life Manchurian Candidates.


James says the next step for Morcan Motion Pictures is to secure the services of an experienced documentary-maker to produce The Orphan Conspiracies. He says enquiries from interested producers are welcomed.


Former senior research scientist at the Technical Research and Development Institute of Japan’s Ministry of Defense, Dr. Takaaki Musha, was so impressed by The Orphan Conspiracies that he wrote the book’s foreword. In it, he describes the book as “A history of the 20th and early 21st Centuries.”


Dr. Musha, who was employed for many years developing naval underwater weapon systems, says he expects readers of the book will be surprised by the level of knowledge imparted in its pages, especially with its revelations of exotic technologies, financial injustices, political deceptions and suppressed scientific discoveries.


The Amazon link to the book is: http://www.amazon.com/The-Orphan-Conspiracies-Conspiracy-Theories-ebook/dp/B00J4MPFT6/
