New series in development based on popular novels by film and TV composer Nathan Larson ---------------------------------------------- September 25, 2019

295 Media and Falcon Grove Productions inked a co-production agreement for new series, The Dewey Decimal System. Based on popular novel trilogy of the same name and written by acclaimed film and television composer, Nathan Larson (Boys Don’t Cry, The Woodsman, and Margin Call), the show will bring to life a captivating dystopian tale of murder, conspiracy and terrorism. Pitched at the 2019 Cannes Film Festival, the series has received interest from several production and distribution companies.

The series follows a homeless veteran (only known as Dewey Decimal), who has adopted the role of enforcer and private detective in the wreckage of what was once (New York City) after a massive cataclysm. As Dewey attempts to piece together his identity and history, he comes ever closer to discovering the root of the conspiracy that leveled the city in the first place, and his possible complicity in it.

“We are extremely excited to partner with David Grover and Falcon Grove Productions to co-produce this series,” stated Kobié Kiambu, Founder of 295 Media. “As a fan of the novels, I’m honored to be entrusted with the awesome responsibility of bringing this story to life and ultimately to viewers- who I know once they see it, will become as engrossed in this world as we are.”

David Grover, Falcon Grove CEO, added: “In the Dewey Decimal Trilogy, Nathan Larson brings to the forefront issues of race, socioeconomic status, and power accumulation in a society where the rule of law is broken – all issues we are staring at front and center today. Dewey’s deep character arc immediately attracted me to the project, and we look forward to bringing Nathan’s vision to the small screen.
