The treatment for Mirage will be used to pitch a five part mini-series based on a novel of the same name. The book description is as follows: Laurel Dixon has it all. She is a Caucasian woman, living the American Dream…or so she thinks. She has a successful career in a world where women are expected to be home and stay silent. She is a proponent for equal rights, and has finally given birth to her first child after years of failed pregnancies. What will happen when Laurel discovers in the most unwelcome way that her entire life has been only a MIRAGE?
[HARLAN] [GENDER: MALE] [AGE: 35-40]
Caucasian, Ruthless, selfish, self-important. Intentionally impregnated Sadira in order to “give” Elizabeth a child.
[SOPHIA] [GENDER: FEMALE] [AGE: 25-30]
Knows nothing of her African heritage. Passed for white by Harlan and the truth of her birth and background remains a family secret.
[LAUREL] [GENDER: FEMALE] [AGE: 25-30]
Sophia’s daughter, well established in her career, a proponent of equal rights crossing both race and gender. Knows nothing of her African heritage until she gives birth to a son with obvious African features.
