The Crest is a novelization based on the 22-year-old actor, entrepreneur, and influencer’s new TV pilot script
Sarah Reasons, Dance Moms cast member, actor, and writer, has launched her first sci-fi fantasy book – The Crest. A screenplay-to-novel adaptation, the story centers around supernatural beings, power struggles, a controversial love triangle, and supporting characters that confront the complexity of LGBTQ experiences. The e-book and hardcopy are now available for pre-order via Amazon.com and Barnes & Noble.
Sarah, who is also the writer of the TV pilot script, developed the concept for the book after receiving positive feedback throughout the industry. The Crest was named a quarter-finalist in the 2022 ScreenCraft Sci-Fi & Fantasy Screenwriting Competition and a semi-finalist in the 2023 Outstanding Screenplays TV Pilot Competition. The novel follows a teen girl, 16-year-old James Dunlan, as she tries to uncover the secrets surrounding her privileged family and their elite social circle.
“Since Dance Moms, I’ve co-starred in several network series and started writing my first screenplay three years ago, ” says Sarah Reasons, author of The Crest. “Writing The Crest was a rigorous but fun process. I’ve put a lot of work into writing, editing, and developing each character, and I think everyone, regardless of age, can relate to its underlying themes of love and the desire for individuality.”
Jackson Entertainment, a talent firm managing established and emerging creative artists, partnered with Sarah to produce a TV pilot sizzle reel for The Crest. The short promotional video features Sarah as the lead character and will be used to pitch the TV series idea to networks later this year. The Crest also made The Red List on Coverfly.com, ranking as one of the top-rated Fantasy Television projects.
