Pilot Episode Synopsis

Life is at the mercy of corrupt power.  We all ride in its wake; whether we realise it or not…


Since the 1940’s, scientists at the Ministry Of Beyond Science (MOBS) have been experimenting with a frequency capable of creating alternative versions of reality.  To those in power, it’s known as ‘The Great Experiment’.  Currently, the scientists understanding and manipulation of the frequency is in its infancy. 


For many years, participants all over the world have been volunteering to be part of a popular Parapsychology (PSI) research project; a front for ‘The Great Experiment’.  All subjects have secretly had microchips inserted into their bodies that relay vital cognitive information to MOBS, 24/7.


A whistle-blower scientist called Dean Underwood, who works in MOBS, makes international news when he tells the truth about experiments that intend to cause a shift in reality and the impact it could have on the world if not stopped.  Hours after appearing on a news broadcast, he is admitted to hospital with a fatal dose radiation poisoning. Dean’s widow hires private detective Jack to investigate his death.  Jack is intrigued by the case and begins his investigation.  


It doesn’t take long for Jack to realise he is caught up in the conspiracy and is rescued by a team of freedom fighters calling themselves ‘The Nursery’.


Jack learns he is an unwilling participant of the PSI experiment and is kidnapped by MOBS where he is blackmailed to help them shift reality in their next experiment. 


With assistance from his newly found freedom-fighter allies, he escapes and is taken to their underground sanctuary known as ‘The Nursery’. 


Together they soon learn the truth about the global experiment and the MOBS plans to steal energy from potential alternative realities and control the ultimate power in this universe.


One of the freedom fighters called Cabe, has witnessed first hand how the energy drain affects planets in other realities.  He also knows that the other realities are desperately trying to solve the problem by fighting to take back the energy from this reality.  There is an unknown war at play, with each reality fumbling in the dark to find the equilibrium of energy and power.  Who controls the energy, will control reality.
