Lex has recently completed the series bible for her new original TV series FOOTAGE, an episodic thriller with 13 1-hour episodes per season. The show imagines a covert FBI program in the near future, centered on a troubling new form of espionage. Keywords: Artificial Intelligence; individual freedom versus safety of the nation; government overreach; star-crossed lovers. With shades of 'Memento', 'The Matrix' and the Jason Bourne franchise, FOOTAGE is a female-led cyber-punk thriller with contemporary topicality. Lex is writing the pilot script in January 2016.
With Lex's debut short film 'Look' (working title) nearing completion in post-production, a new website for the film will be arriving in spring 2016. Among the prevailing mysteries the site will answer is what the film's darned title will be! Updates will be posted here in the future.
After several years of struggling to maintain two very different voices (genre vs. literary) under the same name, Lex has decided to use a different pseudonym altogether for her literary fiction and poetry. Introducing: Winter Bel.

For the avoidance of all doubt, any writing that is not a screenplay and not genre fiction will now carry the "Winter Bel" signature. This means 'Honeycomb (Pieces On Love)', 'Climbing Scrapyards' and 'Scatterpunk.com' are all now Winter Bel properties -- click on the respective link to be taken to the relocated site for each project. The new site for Winter Bel is WinterBel.info

Going forward, "Lexia Snowe" (increasingly abbreviated to Lex Snowe) exclusively denotes film and TV projects, and genre fiction (including graphic novels).
A delayed announcement, but here goes -- Lexia Snowe's TV pilot OUTBOUND (2015) placed in the Second Round of the Sundance Episodic Storytelling Lab 2015. In the pilot, a specialist US Marshals unit head to Berlin to collaborate with police and German intelligence agencies in a manhunt for an American fugitive. Witness subterfuge and distrust of America complicate progress.
Lexia Snowe's short script, Black and Blue, a 20 minute crime thriller and black comedy, placed in the Semi-Finals of the Screencraft Short Script Contest 2015. Lex is considering shooting the film herself in 2016. For more about films written and directed by Lexia Snowe, see BenthicPictures.com
