LOGLINE

 

This TV drama series is partly-inspired by Hawaiian mythology and by the 1960s TV show "Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea:"

Inspired by stories of oceanic gods and monsters, a scientist explores the deep sea and learns that some of the ancient Hawaiian myths of creation and a supposed “Tree of Life” are all too hauntingly true.

This TV drama series would draw the interest of any viewer who is a fan of Jacques Cousteau, Robert Ballard, James Cameron, or Silvia Earle. 

 

Currently, I have over 400 titles to keep our writers motivated and busy for many seasons.  Each episode is a stand-alone with its own beginning, middle, and end. 

 

If each season requires 15 episodes, here are 45 episodes to represent three seasons: 

- The Coffin Banks

- Cemetary Landslide

- A Unique Specimen

- A Very Special Catch

- Allowing Females to Grow

- A World with Less Humans

- Areas Once Forbidden

- Awakening of the Gods

- Flower of the Deep

- As Strange as It May Seem

- Angels Nearing Earth

- Barren Rocky Slope

- Bright Child of Darkness

- A Strange Silence

- Chillingly Warm 

- The Way Its Teeth Crushes

- Definitely a Predator

- Determining Its Lineage

- None Are as Big

- Based on Her Size

- Revealing Ancient Secrets

- Into a Yawning Grave

- Burning All Alone

- Body of Water

- Their Part of the World

- Garden of the Gods

- A Chill Over Everything

- Fewer Places for People

- Home of the Future

- Spineless Creeps

- Sharing That Depth

- The Way They Consume

- Underworld Predator

- Children of the Light

- Gazing Upon the Shore

- Worn by Time Eternal

- Forgotten Fire

- Bubbling Its Thoughts

- Totally Terrifying

- Prehistoric Relative

- Around That Time

- Snapping Its Jaws

- Surrounded by Prey

- The Sound of Cracking Bones

- An Act of Terrorism 

NOTE:  This series was once envisioned as a spin-off of my TV drama series "PARADISE," but all references to that show can be deleted from this one should we decide to take things in a different direction.

WHY?

- OBJECTIVES:  As with all of our projects, our goal is to: 

- EDUCATE: 

- Teach history and give our audiences some background into why things are the way they are. 

- Debunk the myths, hoaxes, and "fake news."

 

- INSPIRE:  We hope to create a sense of wonder to inspire a new generation of Americans to take action and do the right things.  Because our show's supporting characters is a dreamer who aspires to greatness, our audiences can follow their respective paths.

 

- OUR ACTIONS DEFINE OUR CHARACTER:  We need to show our audiences what road one has to travel in order to achieve our lifelong dreams.  Nothing is promised or guaranteed.  Nothing is free.  One has to suffer some pain to elevate one's life to the next level.

 

- CALL TO ADVENTURE:  When we are personally challenged by an evil person or called out by evil events (criminal activity, war, etc.) occurring within our community, we need to answer, or the evil will eventually reach us after it destroys our neighbors.

MERCHANDISING

PROTAGONISTS:  THE ARCHITECTS

Architect Zaha Hadid was a world-famous architect who passed away on March 31, 2016.  By showing audiences her extensive portfolio of designs via our feature films, we hope to inspire a new generation of architects who will push the boundaries of building design and construction. 

PRODUCTION COST:  SIMILAR TO STAR TREK DISCOVERY

ANTAGONISTS:  THE DEVELOPERS

ADDITIONAL RESEARCH

I come up with the following idea:  Located near the aquaculture farm of ROLAND DELMAR (a character modeled after TAYLOR "TAP" PRYOR) is a "slaughterhouse" and processing plant where the seafood is packaged for human consumption.  This is how the area today known as The Coffin Banks got its name.  Many sea creatures died there, and many workers perished under mysterious, unexplainable circumstances.
