Rowan and Sam
the basic concept
Ghost busting kids in an urban setting. The stories will be fairly episodic and deal with the adventures of the title characters as well as the everyday problems they face in Jr. High. The genre and setting open the door for introducing the audience to other cultures through religions and ways of living.
Rowan ans Sam are a special pair of kids who were born on the same day to two special women. Each has special powers which, when skillfully combined, make them a spiritual dynamo. They were a born team, raised knowing about and developing their powers. They deal with the various supernatural problems of their city, Washington D.C.. Both contemporary and historic ghosts, wayward souls and pesky poltergeists will cross their path.
