THE REPUBLIC OF SARAH
- By KENNE HOFFMAN
Sarah Cooper (Tell Me Your Secrets’ Stella Baker) is a friendly high school teacher in Greylock New Hampshire who taps into her rebellious side to fight the mega- corporation Lyndon Industries in the CW’s The Republic of Sarah. When a valuable mineral used in tech is discovered under the town, Sarah will try (with the help of her friends, colleagues, and students) to rally the townspeople into voting for independence, protecting their homes, jobs, and the town. The cast will also include Luke Mitchell, Megan Follows, Izabella Alvarez, Ian Duff, Hope Lauren, Nia Holloway, Landry Bender, and Forrest Goodluck. CBS-TV Studios’ Jeffrey Paul King created the series and wrote the teleplay for the first episode. Executive producers are King, Cat Candler, Marc Webb, Mark Martin, Jeff Grosvenor, and Leo Pearlman.
Greylock, New Hampshire was just your run-of-the-mill town until the mining industry corporate giant stepped into the picture. There seems to be no way to stop the bulldozers and the town’s impending demise until Sarah discovers a strange cartographical loophole that proves Greylock was never officially claimed by the United States. She proposes an oddly intriguing solution — they could declare independence. Sarah discovers that her own brother, eager to exact his revenge upon the community he feels abandoned him, is representing the mining company. While they argue it could benefit the town, the negative consequences could be much worse. Should be exciting!
