Granite Forks

a Bashar Shbib, John Deitcher series

GRANITE FORKS (8 EPISODES)

TV Series, Drama, 186:36 [8 episodes], TBA, Color, 35mm & Betacam.

 

Synopsis

Something slightly mysterious is underfoot in the sleepy border village called Granite Forks and it smells like murder. The citizens of this odd little town are rather eccentric themselves and have many secrets hidden from view. It’s up to the quirkiest resident of them all along with a couple of unlikely accomplishes to solve the mystery.

The prophecy of the border town:

When the hanging light collapses and the plastic man expires,
Old bonds will be broken as the children start to tire (and the villagers conspire).
When a gentle stranger doth arrive then heroes will be born
(a gentle stranger comes, a hero’s strength he then uncorks)
To uncover something fiendish at the gates of Granite Forks.
