John Richmond         DEOXY – 1 Hour TV pilot  Sci-Fi

Hello.  I wanted to write a TV show that had everyday people exhibiting extra ordinary abilities.   It had to be believable with relatable characters showing real emotions and having personal stories to tell.  There positively had to be an “anything goes” approach.  Infinite possibilities.  Life and death.  End of humanity.  May I introduce DEOXY.


Logline: Highly evolved people from around the world must come together, discover how to use their special abilities to make sure humanity survives in its decisive battle with nature.    


Hard Sell: In the distant past, organic mutagens lead to the beginning of life on Earth, a testament to the power of mutations in evolution. Millions of years later, in the present day, these mutagens return, granting humans extraordinary abilities. Amidst  environmental destruction and conflict, two FBI agents, Taylor and Forbes, find themselves thrust into a world of deadly stinger flies, mysterious tribes with supernatural connections, and a race against time to understand the origins and consequences of these new mutations.


The world: Our planet has undergone significant global changes, so all life must evolve – and fast. Nature has provided a solution.  New organic molecules, called mutagens, have been synthesized in the atmosphere and are raining down into the oceans.  These new molecules allow anything with DNA to mutate.  Evolutionary changes that would normally take thousands of years are now taking place in a generation. 


Conflict and Stakes: The primary conflict is the Bartot tribe's pursuit of Lucy, who possesses unique abilities. The stakes are high as Lucy's life and the fate of the Reza tribe are at risk. Additionally, Forbes and Taylor must navigate the challenges of their newfound abilities and the skepticism of their superiors.


Overall Mood: Adventurous and contemplative, with a sense of urgency about the need for evolution.


Unique Hook: A woman from the Reza tribe who can understand animals and insects, and the discovery of new abilities by the main characters.


Writing Style: The writing style in this screenplay is characterized by a blend of suspenseful and action-packed sequences, naturalistic dialogue, and a focus on high-stakes situations. The scenes showcase a strong visual storytelling approach, often incorporating elements of mystery and science fiction. The dialogue is concise and impactful, driving the plot forward while revealing character dynamics.


USP: Discover a thrilling and innovative exploration of evolution, survival, and the connection between nature and humanity in this captivating script. Witness the journey of two FBI agents, Taylor and Forbes, as they uncover the secrets of new species, DNA's role in survival, and the potential for superhuman abilities. With a unique blend of action, suspense, and supernatural elements, this story offers a fresh take on the genre while delivering thought-provoking themes and engaging characters. The writer's informative, contemplative, and thrilling voice will keep you on the edge of your seat as you delve into the mysteries of the Reza tribe, killer stinger flies, and the pursuit of a tiger attack suspect. This script is a must-read for fans of sci-fi, adventure, and crime dramas.

Adam – He is a 28-year-old FBI agent.  He graduated top of his class and continues to be amazing at everything he does.  He has superpowers, when he is facing death, his fight or flight response allows him to fly, swim under water and bullets can’t pierce his skin.   He is very matter of fact and has a unique charm that attracts both male and female attention. 


Eve - She is the female version of Adam.   28-year-old, FBI agent, top of her class.  She too has a unique fight or flight response which allows her to do anything to escape death.  She has yet to fall in love, and she is on the lookout for Mr. Right. 


Dr. Coggins – One of the most brilliant scientists of his day.  His research on DNA is unparalleled.  He manages to identify the new mutagen which is causing evolution to take place at an accelerated rate.  He is obsessed by his work, he has no family, which allows him to focus on his work to ensure humanities survival. 


The series: Every episode is self-contained and focusses on one or two newly evolved phenomenon.   The bigger picture – entire species evolution.  Moral questions are asked – is it now acceptable to hurt a fly, so humans can survive. The smaller picture looks at humanity.  Is it egotistical to think we should remain on the top of the food chain?
