I have one more episode written. Episode 18 is the final frontier. I’ll take a break from Nutmeg until I can get it truly secured. In the meantime, I’ll use what I have and start turning into a novel form. Characters won’t just drop off the map after being named (Donnie), others will actually have something to do (Chip, Donnie, and Feng), and the series will have a more focused arc. Episodes will be taken out and others put in their place; or I can leave the chapters in and expand on them.
General Mako and the agents are staying the same. So are the aliens. I’ll explain the dynamic between Archibald and Nutmeg 3/8 in depth. Agent Z won’t have a wife to go to back home and the reason he can’t go back is more intrinsic than it was in the series. There are many things that will change for the better. I’ve most definitely learned from this mistake. So don’t fret, next time is for something different.
If I come back for a season two, it’ll only be ten episodes long so I don’t beat a dead horse. The story arc would be simpler. And who knows, maybe it’s just time to let go. But would the point be if I gave up this early in the game. In a way I’m like Netflix, experimenting.
Over the next couple of weeks I’m going to write three pilots for potential series. Sound familiar? This is what Amazon Prime is doing for their clients. I want to try the same thing because it’s a great model. I’ll post the pilots. The one I choose will be based off of comments. If I even get one comment, the one that was commented on will be the one continued.
