The Fundamental Approach taken in writing this Screenplay was expressed by Producer Gary Goetzman describing “The Pacific” Mini-Series: “The Truth is always much more amazing than any story you can make up. You gotta find the truth, … it’s always a better story.”
TESLA’S Tale is the Classic American Rags-to-Riches-to-Rags Saga with a Twist. It has inherent and building Dramatic Tension, as Tesla is first bamboozled by his American Idol, Thomas Edison – the “Wizard of Menlo Park”
TESLA’S fundamental Radio achievements were erroneously credited to Marconi. Those Patents were overturned and posthumously awarded to TESLA by the US Supreme Court.
TESLA’S Tragic Demise is revealed by Marc Seifer in “WIZARD” to have largely been the result of collusion to deny him funding for his pioneering Wardenclyffe “World Broadcasting Center” by JP Morgan’s Circle of Robber Barons
TESLA was effectively consigned to the dust bin of history, labeled a “Mad Scientist” by his detractors
Today Tesla’s story is on the path of Historical Redemption as noted in this Wall Street Journal Page One Article Jan 27, 2010.

“… (climate change) has happened because when in 1906 Nikola Tesla said that fossil fuels would one day create a corruption in the entire atmosphere of the Earth, he was called eccentric.” http://www.projectearth.com/HTML/EditorialArchive/Tesla.html
TESLA has an accelerating General Public Awareness as he is now a Brand Name as seen in both TESLA MOTORS – the car, and TESLA – the Band with their Song “Edison’s Medicine”
TESLA’S growing Public Awareness thus exists in multiple and diversely overlapping quadrants.
TESLA is both an Inconvenient Genius and a Beautiful Mind who Matters. In effect TESLA has gone from A ZERO THEN TO A HERO NOW
