Edward Pittman’s writing runs the gamut
from screenwriting to fiction to songwriting to poetry. We're currently representing three of his feature film scripts and a brand new television pilot.
THE MESSAGE is a one-hour serialized grounded science fiction TV drama in the vein of "Fringe,""Lost" and "The Crossing." Here's the logline: When a scientific team in a small Texas town stumbles across an alien transmission with the power to alter reality, enemies assemble and time grows short — and in the far reaches of space, our universe is dying.
His latest feature script, DARK FOREST, is horror. Here's the logline: At an armored transport company struggling to survive, a company speechwriter with his personal life in crisis fights to maintain his integrity and save lives when a ruthless team of criminals, led by a killer with nothing to lose, begins a deadly campaign of robbery and murder.
THE COMMUNICATOR is an action drama. Here's the logline: At an armored transport company struggling to survive, a company speechwriter with his personal life in crisis fights to maintain his integrity and save lives when a ruthless team of criminals, led by a killer with nothing to lose, begins a deadly campaign of robbery and murder.
One of our readers, who has done coverage for Warner Brothers, called out the sharp dialogue and authentic action.
NOTHING CHANGES is a drama. Here’s the logline: Investigating a young man’s attempted suicide exposes the fractures in a psychologist’s seemingly perfect world, edging him to the brink of tragedy. This is a commissioned script based on the novel Nothing Ever Changes by Herb Abrams.
THREAT, is a thriller. Here’s the logline: After the brutal murder of two employees at a computer antivirus multinational, a corporate everyman unravels a shocking conspiracy and must outmatch his adversaries before he becomes the next victim.
Pittman has several other scripts in various stages of completion. In addition to seeking a co-production partner for THREAT, Pittman is actively seeking agent representation to the film industry.
I Only Knew Your Name, the full-length musical he cowrote
with Arthur Godfrey, is his first work for the stage. And Pittman’s poems have been
featured in Image Magazine, Sidewinder, Analecta and Wellspring.

“Arthur Godfrey writes and sings night
songs. They should be listened to in the evening. He is at his
best telling the human condition. His voice is a raspy and unsettling
instrument that demands to be taken seriously, and it is the perfect
voice for his songs. Arthur is not kidding. There is something
holy about that, about putting your heart and truth on the line
in a song. He does it beautifully. I salute him. Broken
Wings is a wonderful record.”
—Mary Gauthier, Singer/Songwriter
Arthur Godfrey may not sound like your typical
singer-songwriter, but one listen to his gritty songs about life
and surviving reveals the soul of a poet (Performing Songwriter
magazine, July/August 2005). In 2001 Godfrey released his critically
acclaimed CD East Side of Town,
catching the attention of actor/director Sean Penn, and the two
began an enduring friendship. Godfrey performed in summer 2005
in New York City for Al Pacino, Sean Lennon and others, bringing
validation to his art and keeping him, as he puts it, “fighting
in the ring.” The world is discovering Godfrey’s talent:
He’s won the prestigious John Lennon Songwriting Contest
twice and been featured on the Americana Music Association’s
2004 compilation CD with such artists as Willie Nelson, Lucinda
Williams and the late Johnny Cash. Godfrey’s CD Amen broke
the Americana charts top 40 in September 2005.
recognition among music-industry peers, he focused for a time
on his musical play, If
I Only Knew Your Name, which
he cowrote with Edward Pittman. The play is based on 13 of his
original songs and tells the story of two people facing abusive
pasts and real-life hardships — ultimately finding self-realization
and love. His most recent album, Broken
held its own in the Americana charts the Top 20 — the only album
at the time without major-label representation.
