Shooting for the Moon with "Lunatics"!

Tired of "darker and grittier" reboots? So are we! "Lunatics!" takes an original and light-hearted approach to a serious subject, telling how a first successful permanent colony is established on the Moon.

Our pilot, "No Children in Space" is a "hard science fiction fairy tale" which follows the youngest colonist from the Earth to the Moon, setting up the premise for the series. The series extrapolates from present-day technologies and social movements, and is set just 25 years in the future. It's a character-based frontier story with a hard-SF foundation.
