'Donald Newman ...' is our planned webseries. It has been severely delayed from it's original conception but we are still eager to get it up and running.

SYNOPSIS:

Donald Newman has worked at the same bottom rung job for over ten years. He has a string of failed relationships the last of which kicked him out of his house forcing him to move in with his much more successful younger brother. Life doesn't seem like it could get much lower but things start to look up when he meets a nice girl at a singles evening and get invited to a job interview the following morning.

However, his good mood is cut short when he is hit by a car, a car which he is convinced he saw himself driving. After this he finds himself the target of two time travelling hitmen whilst under the protection of a mysterious woman who doesn't seem all that used to being human. All this is being watched over by a descendent of the last true wizard, who is rapidly catching up his ancestor in eccentricity, but just because the last true wizard died over a thousand years ago whilst serving as part of a ludicrously disfunctional elite unit of the kings knights doesn't mean that he and this socially inept unit has finished causing trouble.

Just had an idea regarding Donald Newman... I remember when discussing Sanctuary you had plans for sort of reaper ghost like characters that could fly and stuff... would you want to stick some mythical creatures like that into the series???

Absolutely, the later parts of the series are very much open at the moment and we can go absolutely mental on the design if we get that far.

Will certainly be looking for ideas so start sketching them out now. Very Happy

Cool. I've got a few ideas, probably on your list too but like... there should be an incredibly crazy time travel episode much like Tek Jansen from the Future. Can't find a link online anymore that's accessible in the UK but you can probably find it if you look hard enough.

Also definitely should come up with a Major bad guy who can be slotted into the background in the early episodes. Maybe not even reveal who it is til quite late on... or at all...

Also a few episodes where you're not quite sure what the fuck is going on but it will make sense later on... like I'm imagining most of it will be.

Calm down there Dave, lol, let's get the pilot out of the way first, make sure this thing actually works.

Glad to see you have just as much trouble turning off your imagination as I do though.

I can never turn off my imagination. I just convinced my girlfriend to buy a tiny canvas and easel so that she could make a little artist figure out of clay and make it look like he's painting onto it...

Also, it is a good idea to have some form of idea of where the series is going to go so that when you look back you can notice the little details that become more apparent later on... and I love that shit! Razz
