I came up with the premise for a new network television series Monday while driving to work. It’s working title is “Incognito.”
The premise (and I’ve done a lot more since – different episodes, stuff like that) is, in true Story Engineering fashion is:
“What if vampires and weres tried to hide among the human population?”
Since writing the above I discussed it with my roommate. He looked at me, confused, and said “Isn’t that what Buffy the Vampire Slayer” was all about? I told him that I didn’t know; I’d never seen it. Well, I’ve seen a few episodes in the past couple of days.
Is it like Buffy? In a word – no. It seems more like the Godfather meets Laurell K. Hamilton sans sex. Add some romance, and a bit of nobless oblige, and a dash of sociopath, and you’ve got a hint of the idea percolating in my brain.
I only wonder – don’t they medicate you for that?
Update on the job: nothing yet. Update on the roommate: possibility. I met her last night at Starbucks, and we seemed to hit it off. She’s going to come look at the apartment Sunday. Stay tuned for more information.
See you Sunday!
