Pitch: Pier 60

Title:       PIER 60      


Genre: Thriller/Drama

Logline:     What happened after the Titanic sailed into New York City, Pier 60. 

Pier 60 was the destination berth of The Titanic had she made it to the US. This is a ‘what if’ story. What if the Titanic had made the crossing without incident and those aboard had survived. The ship misses the iceberg.

There are three characters: Joseph is 33 and has traveled over in third class. His plan is to assassinate the President of the United States – William Taft because of the way - he thinks -that the Americans have steamrollered his family.

Dr Blake is a Scot who has worked on experimental medicine and who makes a discovery that could stop cancer from growing in the body. He is headed for Princeton, NJ to continue his work.

Sara is English and she is the woman who will not change the world but will marry David, the man whose narration runs through the story. Through their eyes we see what the world becomes due to those souls who did not die on the crossing – some good, some bad.
