Set in an ethereal bookstore where all of the employees are fictional characters who have yet to be written, and must live a purgatory-like existence tending to the literary cannon until their author shows up to claim them, "Blank Paige" follows Paige – an intelligent young woman who is the only character to arrive in the Store without any knowledge of her genre or story. Paige’s appearance sends the world of the Bookstore into a tailspin – causing the characters to question how much free will they have over their own lives, and threatening to destroy the very fabric of imagination. In this world, characters are far more complex than their archetypes would imply, and nothing is as black and white as it appears.
From best-selling author and Broadway artist Ashley Griffin, "Blank Paige" is a meta, genre bending exploration of fate versus free will and the power of stories.
"Blank Paige" will be released fall, 2023.
It also exists as a pilot script with interest from Amazon and other network/streaming platforms.
"Blank Paige" is brilliantly genre defying!
