"Alex Detail's Revolution"
Alex Detail has been kidnapped. Again. Ten years ago, Alex was a child genius who saved the world from The Harvesters, a mysterious alien force that attempted to extinguish Earth's sun. A decade later, The Harvesters have returned, but Alex is no longer a prodigy and unwilling to fight another war. So someone at The House of Nations had him drugged and placed on the last remaining ARRAY warship, which is under heavy attack.
Unfortunately for Alex's mysterious kidnappers (and the world) he has lost the mega IQ that allowed him to win the last war. Now Alex must convince the ship's food-obsessed Captain Odessa to use his risky command program to save their ship, uncover his kidnapper's devious plot, and survive the war long enough to make it to Pluto, where, underneath the planet's frozen surface lies the only force in the universe that can stop The Harvesters.
Darren Campo's savvy creative instinct has led him to run one of the most popular programming divisions in cable network television. His philosophical ingenuity and storytelling ability has fostered one of the most intriguing literary stories written in "Alex Detail's Revolution." As a television producer and executive, Darren is verse in developing all genres of content.
Currently, Darren oversees one of the industry's largest original production operations at truTV. Just prior to the launch of truTV, Multichannel News named Darren Campo one of "40 Under 40" to watch.
But Darren's fare for content can ride the wave from "Operation Repo" to drawing on inspirations for his own creative writing from Schopenhauer, Nietzsche and Joseph Campbell to create the epic adventure and story of intrigue that Alex Detail takes.
As Darren invokes Campbell's take on Schopenhauer, "In an essay Schopenhauer says that, 'In looking back at your life, it was as though composed by some novelist. So who composed that plot? Just as your dreams are composed by an aspect of yourself of which your consciousness is unaware, so, too, your whole life is composed by the will within you.
People meet by chance becoming leading agents in the structure of your life, so, too, will you have served unknowingly as an agent, giving meaning to the lives of others.' The whole thing gears together like one big symphony, with everything unconsciously structuring everything else."
Early critique of Darren's first published novel, "Alex Detail's Revolution" has been cited as a work of 'activation', not unlike thematic nerve struck by Dan Brown's Da Vinci Code.
Darren also spent four years working at CBS where he was involved in the production of the station group's syndicated programming and news.
Campo has written several humorous articles regarding the way audiences consume media and the techniques used to measure them, including "Mommy, Where do Nielsens Come From?"
Campo graduated from the Stern School of Business at N.Y.U. with degrees in marketing and industrial relations. Campo is an adjunct professor at his alma mater, the NYU Stern School of Business, where he teaches "The Business of Producing."
