THE NIGHTRIDERS TV SERIES


 

Short Summary

The Nightriders is set in 1714-20 in the days when Barbary Pirates  ravaged the coasts of the West Country, Southern Ireland and Wales, stealing men and women for slaves. When it seemed that no King would aggravate the Sultans of Morocco, who were responsible for this tyranny, the squires realised it was because the Sultans controlled the Mediterranean and trade routes. Englishmen  wanted their stolen countrymen returned but their pleas fell on deaf ears. When no King would spearhead an attack to win back his enslaved country men, the squires took the matter into their own hands and initiated a fearsome private army of The Nightriders, the first coast guards. These men  protected the villages and towns from being stripped by Barbary pirates of the young men to build the Sultan of Morocco's palace and taking young girls. These girls were destined for the workforce brothels and the beauties, particularly red heads, for the Sultan's harem. In these violently uncertain times the beautiful, red haired, squire's daughter Elizabeth is forbidden to ride out one stormy evening with her brother, but being feisty and wilful she does, with devastating consequences. Pirates always liked to attack under the mantle of a brewing storm.

SUPPORT OUR DEVELOPMENT


DONATE NOW


We are presently raising money for the development of this 8 part tv series. A period drama set in 1714-20. We wish to provide fresh content for viewing and to create jobs for cast and crew and supporting industries that have been knocked by the covid problems.

 

We need this money for a high end teaser, with sumptious costumes, lavish locations and breathtaking acting. We will also make a high end poster with a profile equine photographer. On from that we need a proper detailed budget from a line producer, and to retain a good Casting Director. Every penny you give will be used to that end. We will present this along with other material to various commissioners like BBC, Netflix, Hulu, History Channel with the view to getting the whole series produced.


We are running a indiegogo crowdfund in parallel, that is doing well, but a few potential donators wish to pay by pay pal which indiegogo do not take so please use pay pal below. The campaign is on here:  https://igg.me/at/nightridertv/emal/6016882
