On January 24, 2018, Serial Box and The Associated Press will launch 1776: The World Turned Upside Down. A month-by-month, immersive account of the American colonies in 1776 and the people and events that led to the founding of the United States of America, with commentary on its continued relevance to understanding America today. 1776 will launch worldwide as a monthly serial, in text and enhanced audio, on the Serial Box website, in the Serial Box app, and everywhere ebooks are distributed. To understand the current divisiveness in America, it is helpful to look closely at the initial uniting of America’s colonies, and how that foundation led us to where we are today. In 1976, using this logic, the AP commissioned three of its top journalists to write a month by month account of America in 1776 for the bicentennial. Originally, these accounts were collected in a beautiful, large format book for their member news organizations. Now, more than 40...Read More >

Beginnings are hard, and even though Save Point is the fourth episode of ReMade season 2, it was my first for the season—essentially a sequel to last year’s storyline—and I was worried I’d forgotten how to write Loki and ReMade.
Davenant takes drastic action when he realizes how Diane got her hands on his ledger.
As the outcasts search desperately for the missing child, hope dwindles – and the Gods Whispers call Fisher to a cathedral of bones.
Upon entering Sanctuary, the teens are greeted by a young child, the first new person they’ve met in this new world.
Delia: As soon as the Mighty Brain Trust that is the Tremontaine Summit, Plotting, and Deli Nosh Weekend came to the decision that most of Episode 7 of Season 3 should be set in the ducal hunting lodge at the dark midnight of the year, my eyes met Liz’s across the living room. We both knew, beyond the shadow of a doubt, that Episode 7 Must Be Ours. It was the obvious practical choice—structurally, it makes sense for guest authors to pop in mid-season, when the plot arc has been firmly established by the staff writers, and preferably in an episode that differed in tone, focus, or setting from the rest. Which is pretty much Episode 7 in a structural nutshell. But that’s not why we wanted it and no other. No, not at all. Liz: On the one hand, we were instantly attracted to the delicious compactness of getting a lot of characters into a country house for a...Read More >
Seeing a familiar face should have been a good thing, but this isn’t the same Jing-Wei the teens knew.
On Esha’s advice, Diane speaks to Lionel about the future of their relationship.
