THE ORIGINAL is about movies and acting, but touches on high fashion, martial arts, science fiction, and emergency medical procedures. It is a fast-moving and compelling thriller, with flashes of comedy set against desperate and deadly struggles between the Klassnys and Overlords. It has an appeal to a very wide audience, and contains some rare and honest insights into the real Hollywood.
THE ORIGINAL is the story of Sara Larkin, an actress who thought her career in Hollywood was on the slide. Then she kills herself, some mysterious people dispose of the body, and she gets on with life as someone else. At first everything improves. She gets a good role in a major movie, Assassinelle, and soon she is on the way to becoming a superstar.
All the while she is becoming less human… people called the Overlords are still trying to kill her, but the Klassnys have sent the deadly and psychopathic Doctor Svetlana to protect her. It is vital to the Klassnys that both Assassinelle and Sara become major hits. As the movie nears completion, a shadowy war between the Klassnys and Overlords erupts. Sara is caught in the middle, and neither side seems to be the good guys.
The Original will be available for purchase and download ONLY in the Official Claudia Christian Website Store in November 2014. All proceeds go to support the C Three Foundation.

One Little Pill: The Treatment For Alcoholism They Don’t Want You To Know About
“Once an alcoholic, always an alcoholic… unless something could change what’s happened. And that’s the other story.”
Narrated by Claudia Christian, star of the “Babylon 5″ TV Series, “One Little Pill” follows the struggles of a new method for treating alcoholism and the people whose lives change because of it. Although 78% effective, The Sinclair Method has been held back by deeply embedded dogma, outdated societal beliefs, a greedy rehab industry, and a system unwilling to change. With over 2.5 million per year dying from alcohol-related causes worldwide (more than HIV), the time is now for an option that saves lives. “One Little Pill” is a one-hour documentary for television and is currently edited as five acts.
Members of the iconic sci-fi show’s art department reunite to discuss how they were able to design 110 episodes over five years and six TV movies, while keeping the sets fresh, exciting and, well, out of this world. Two episodes will screen, introduced by series star Claudia Christian.
Join Claudia, J. Michale Straczynski (The Great Maker), John Iacovelli (Production Designer), Mark-Louis Walters (Art Director), Roland Rosenkranz (Art Director), Alan Kobayashi (Graphic Artist), and other B5 cast and crew members. Special guests include Ann Bruice (Costume Designer) and Dark Hoffman (Propmaster/Props Concept Artist).
Claudia will be introducing JMS to the audience as well as emceeing. John Iacovelli will moderate. Two Babylon 5 episodes, “The Coming of Shadows,” which won the respected HUGO Award, and “Severed Dreams,” which was nominated for an Art Directors Guild award, will be viewed. There will also be a panel discussion throughout and Q & A session.
