Unproduced Screenplay #6: "The Powers" (2000)

The Powers was my first, and only since, attempt at writing an orginal television pilot.  

It is a drama/comedy/thriller/mystery/action/horror/suspense/romance about Daniel Larson, a Los Angeles detective, who returns home to his small Connecticut town twenty years after his parents died from a car accident.  

Or was it an accident?  More importantly, why the hell are there a bunch of evil fallen angels running around town trying to kill people and how is Daniel the key to stopping them?

Here is the opening scene, a flashback to the day his parents died. 

Next up, APPROACHING STORM, a script I was once hired to write as a sequel to The Perfect Storm.  (Yes, I'm talking about the George Clooney movie.)
