Pilot Assistance - Prolific


Are there any writers present who would like to assist in writing a pilot for a new television show? Please see the pitch below.


Oppressed, yet extremely talented black creative who aspires to make movies has a “last days” spiritual experience that allows him to see ancestral beings who come to educate, inspire and aid him on the journey of realizing his dreams.

Pilot Script Synopsis
Lead character is a black male whose birth signified the beginning of a new generation of change to both his paternal and maternal families. There are deep spiritual roots on his maternal side and deep worldly roots on his paternal side. He chooses screenwriting as the creative form to express himself and grows to become a man having the most inspiring celestial experiences, as well as the most challenging and often humorous worldly experiences, all through the people in his family and those who come across his path. The pilot would montage the time between the lead character’s birth and the point of a life changing experience where his eyes are opened to the spiritual realm and he has his first encounter with a hilarious ancestor with an unequivocal point of view full of creative ideas about the things “people need to see” in modern cinema. Under this newly found tutelage, the lead character writes a script that blows a Hollywood producer away and he gets his first opportunity to make a film. He quickly recruits his favorite cousin, his girlfriend, and his off-centered best friend to be his creative and supportive muse as he embarks on his journey. The subject matter of the lead character’s films will range from history, education, relationships, oppression, culture, and eternity to name a few, and the show will feature scenes from his movies germane to the plot of each episode as the series develops.

Series Description
Comedic drama. A hard luck aspiring filmmaker gains the aid of his ancestors to finally realize the dream of bringing his ideas to the silver screen.
