Eisner and his dangerous Indian beauties

May 15, 2008

What’s former Disney Chief Executive Michael Eisner up to? We got a press release on Thursday announcing the debut of an original Web series that Eisner’s media company Vuguru has produced. Vuguru and Web producer Big Fantastic are doing a 50-part series that is designed as a prequel to the latest medical thriller by author Robin Cook, Foreign Body.

In fact, we’re speechless:

A group of dangerous Indian beauties, brimming with hope and desire are brought to the sunny shores of Southern California and are promised the American dream. They are taken in by a group of young, cutthroat medical entrepreneurs who hope to train them and cultivate their nursing skills for their own mysterious ends. The women soon become seduced by the brash and ambitious charmer who lords over them, but for him, his lust for the one, mysterious, unattainable beauty threatens to unravel the very conspiracy he built.

But who is seducing whom and what exactly are the women really being trained to do? With freedoms in America they could never imagine, the girls discover they just might get what they want, no matter the consequences or the risks involved.

Take this trip into seduction, murder, and international intrigue. From the exotic streets of Delhi, India to the sun-soaked sands of Santa Monica, mystery, deceit, and romance are around every corner. Witness how this tale of illicit passion, murderous ambition, and the dark underbelly of medicine unfolds and how life will never be the same for everyone involved.

Now all they need are Charo and Mini-Me.
