We’re pretty psyched that Daniel King, writer for the wonderful Netflix show SWEET TOOTH, has come to The Slate to make movie magic with us. For those of you that are unaware, Sweet Tooth is, according to RobertEbert.com, “a show about a devastating virus that leads people to distrust one another, go into hiding, allow their fear to drive their decisions, and ultimately form unexpected bonds. It’s about isolation and grief, but it is also very much about the unpredictable connections that can end up defining us.”
Since initiating our creative partnership with Daniel, we’ve been floored by his ability to create nuanced characters that reside in complicated worlds. Much like his writing on SWEET TOOTH, Daniel creates damaged characters with hearts of gold and then crafts storylines that require these protagonists to get out of complicated jams.
In Daniel’s story Orders for instance, when a soldier faces the consequences of his actions after coming home from active duty, his comrade from the battlefield fights to save him from the psychological trauma that he’s grappling with… only for them both to realize that their blurred memories may be concealing immoral acts they were a part of.
When the pair has to confront past misdeeds, they are forced to answer the question: Are keeping commands worth sacrificing everything?
