CineStory TV Fellowship Quarterfinalist
Ali’s pilot “44 Steps” was a quarterfinalist of the 2018 CineStory TV/Digital Fellowship in the Original Drama Devision. “44 Steps” is a one-hour legal drama about the personal and professional challenges that face five Supreme Court Justices’ clerks. When conservative Justice Seranno unexpectedly dies from a heart attack, the nation pauses to mourn. The Supreme Court Justice’s clerks, however, have no time to pause. Esther, Zac, Issi, Charlotte, and Jayden- the nation’s most ambitious and promising young legal minds- must scramble to influence a currently tied vote while fighting to keep their jobs in the wake of the Justice’s vacancy.
