Also Rick should we define what the fog is or is not first and how you see this story ending?
Welcome aboard, Stephen.
The template looks fine. Good work.
We'll start getting into story details later, but there will no doubt be something like an official Government scientist who tells us what it roughly is, though he can't be certain, but after that people will start to get their own ideas.
I imagined this would ultimately be three seasons. It will end on a hopeful note for humanity.
The first season that eye going to try to make here, will almost certainly end in a very dramatic reveal, or a major cliffhanger where the main characters lives are threatened. Possibly an event that will force them out of their area into the wider world for the next season. That's what I'm thinking at the moment, anyway.
Great. What is your expectation for these two weeks? Series bible and pilot finished? Or outlines done for all ten episodes?
Also hawkeye asked this on the chronology thread: Is the fog a metaphor for anything? Since this takes place in the UK, I can't help but think about Brexit and what lead up to that. Is this the inspiration for this story?
It might be a bit crazy, but the idea is to try and get the bulk of a Ten Episode Season done!
Fog as Metaphor:
Something like a Fog of Untruth. An exterior representation of the 'clouds' in our own minds. The darkness, the Shadow the wrong ideas we have, the beliefs we have that are at odds with reality, but are what we live by.
A big, foggy cloud that we can't see through, but reveals the truth about ourselves.
Definitely nothing to do with Brexit, but Politics in general is unavoidably in there along with everything else.
