I really wanted to take this time to tell you a little bit more about myself, the story and what you can except from this show.
My name is Mia Kiddo. I attended The Art Institute of NYC in 2009 and then Marlboro College the following year. I have been writing for the character of Starlaina Hallows since I was about 13 and have only recently decided to put her story out there because I believe it is one worth telling. Originally it was meant to be a novel, I adapted it to screenplay format, changed the title and Girls Don’t fight: The series was born.
So lets get briefly into the story.
Girls Don’t Fight is a tale about a girl named Starlaina who decides to deal with the suicide of her girlfriend by joining an underground sort of “female fight club”, if you will. This is the gimmick and thank God it works. That is, what I will assume, attracted you all to the story at least and what I hope will attract others. The reason for this is because GDF does essentially live up to the gimmick. You will definitely see a lot of girls getting down and dirty.
However it also rises up and well beyond the gimmick as well. And it is in this characteristic that I believe we will maintain an amazing story. And it will have almost nothing to do with the plot and everything to do with the characters that drive it. I believe very strongly in character driven stories and that at the end of the day, if you can’t relate to the people you are watching then a very vital connection is lost.
I am extremely excited for the future of this show and am also thoroughly exhausted from the extensive journey that brought me to this point. (I’ll talk about that in another post.) Girls Don’t Fight begins shooting in September. Until then, my mission is to build an army of an audience just as excited as I am about the production of this new series.
