Nicholas Iandolo - Author & Screenwriter
You have reached the Tenth Sphere: my online creative writing showcase.
Over the years I have written a ton of creative and professional works. Soon I'll be launching a new website NicholasIandolo.com that will be all about my professional writing with online samples of that type of work such as: copywriting collateral, press releases, and advertorials. TenthSphere.com is now by entirely dedicated to my creative writing; however, there will certainly be some overlap with my other websites as my writing covers a broad range of genres, industries, and platforms.
There is also a website that is entirely dedicated to my serialized Science Fiction eBook series called NLVProject.com. This site details every aspect of NLV (a.k.a. New Las Vegas) and the project that surrounds (i.e. future releases of chapters, the graphic novel adaptation, and developing NLV for film/TV).
And finally, there will be a future home for my Cut The Crap... books, CutTheCrapAndWrite.com. This site will include everything there is to know about Cut The Crap and WRITE THAT DAMN SCREENPLAY! & Cut The Crap and PITCH THAT DAMN SCREENPLAY! For now, I will cover most of those books' elements here until the new site is hosted and built.
So what I have written that should be showcased here on TenthSphere.com?
I have written non-fiction & fiction books, screenplays, short stories, and blogs. Below is a list of my currently available works:

Note: The following one-sheets are for screenplay pitching purposes only. They do not represent actual script sales or films in production, nor are there any named talent (actors, directors, producers, etc.) are attached to these speculative projects. I have pitched these scripts to Hollywood and local film industry executives (i.e. producers, agents, and directors), and have used these one-sheets for demonstration purposes only. I detail the intrinsic value of the spec-screenplay one-sheet in my eBook on screenplay pitching Cut The Crap and PITCH THAT DAMN SCREENPLAY!
All of these speculative screenplays are readily available for optioning, sales, and production. Furthermore, most of those screenplays come with detailed story synopses and Blake Snyder Beat Sheets (with the exception of Trogs: Terror From Below). Daddy-Daughter Day also has a comprehensive strategic marketing brief available. All screenplays shown below are feature length.

I recently pitched a show idea to Dedham TV (DTV for short, a local cable access channel) called Nick's Sci-Fi Corner and the idea was well received by the executive director of the studio. Earlier this week I turned in a pilot script for the show, and today I had a meeting with the exec about the script. Long story short: she loved it!
The show's been green-lit! And now it will go into development. This show will be more than a local broadcast; it will be available online at various sites including YouTube and Vimeo, the DTV's website, and possibly a national website for public television!
Buckle up! It's going to be a crazy ride from here on out!
More details about the show to follow including a dedicated page here on TenthSphere.com!
