Go6

Hello.  If I may take a moment of your time to tell you about GO6.  I wanted to write a show that I would watch.  It would need to be fast paced, have car chases, fighting scenes, clever twists, love interests, time travel, with an “anything goes” approach.  Life and death.  Relatable.  Believable.  Infinite possibilities.  End of the world.  May I introduce GO6.

 

John McDermott      GO6 – 1 Hour TV Pilot        Sci-Fi    Thriller             www.GO6.world      

 

The tone

Time travel and teleportation is possible.  Parallel Universes and alternate realities are real.  Artificial Intelligence exists.  But no TARDIS or Daleks.

 

Tagline

GO6 is always watching.

 

Logline

John must evolve to trust the ultimate Big Brother, GO6, an AI satellite that manipulates our reality and our lives because John’s team have got to develop a victorious solution for Earth’s survival.

 

The worlds

Parallel Universe P255 is destroyed so the stakes are massive.  In P01, the solar flare is set to hit on June 11th 2021 as it has done in the other parallel universes.  Planet Earth has 2 realities.  In reality 1, a solar shield can’t be built as the technology hasn’t been invented yet.  Think of Tony Stark building the first Iron Man suit in the cave.  It has no internet, cell phones and lots of floppy discs. 

But GO6 time travels and manipulates the timeline.  Look out the nearest window.  This is Reality 2.  It is exactly as GO6 wants it to be and a dream world for Tony Stark.  This reality can now build a solar shield.  However, in Reality 2, many people have had their lives and destinies reprogrammed: famous painters now serve coffee, those once alive are now dead.

 

The Pilot

An earth destroying solar flare approaches Earth in Parallel Universe P255.  GO6 came up with a way to save the world – the solar shield, Earth’s last defence.  However, the solar flare destroys the satellite array.  John and his team, Mike, Lucy and the Chief open a portal to take them back home to Parallel Universe P01 before P255 is annihilated.  They make it through, but when John enters the portal, the solar flare hits and pushes John back in time, giving him a massive case of amnesia.  Earth is destroyed and this starts a chain reaction which destroys the entire universe.

In P01 John has married Amy and has an amazing life.  GO6 is sent into space and it starts calculating how it should change the world.  John joins a protest against the existence of GO6 and carries a placard stating GO666.  John believes the world should be free at last and dreams of a more futuristic world, without GO6. 

John and Amy are in a car crash and John dies, but GO6 rewinds time, manipulating it, so Amy dies – John must be saved at all costs.  He, and his uncle, Dr. Webber, detect a solar flare that could potentially destroy the world.  They have an idea for a solar shield, but the world is not technologically advanced to be able to build it.  The President of the United States shows them GO6 mission control.  John is livid, this is the last place he wants to be.   

John learns that GO6 is earth’s final chance to save the world.  John meets Lucy who now.  works for a special ops team working on GO6’s surveillance information.  GO6 reveals it has a plan that involves changing the world by time travel.  GO6 wants to put an implant in John’s head that will allow him to see everything it does, to time travel and teleport.  There is no way John is trusting GO6, he will never be Big Brother incarnate.    

After much reflection, John goes back to the warehouse.  GO6 shows John graphic footage of the day the solar flare destroys the world in P255.  John puts aside his emotions and has the operation to place the implant in his brain.  It is a success and John learns what the implant can do.  Then John time travels to the original car crash, and sees he died, not Amy.  Go6 is to blame.

GO6 pleads with John to trust it, they must continue with the mission.  Time is running out.  John agrees and goes back to 1905 Germany and speaks to a young Einstein.  After another successful mission in London, 1984, the next mission sees the invention of the internet, Facebook, cell phones and the world becoming more digitally advanced – Reality 2.   Some lives have been altered in this new reality so John and Lucy must identify those people and give them the chance to have their old lives back. 

 

The series

Every episode is self-contained and is a “day in the life” drama.  The purpose of the first two seasons is to design and build a solar shield to save the world and give people the choice to reclaim their previous lives, without jeopardising the new timeline.  Season 3 looks at what happens from June 12th 2021 onwards – after the world is saved.  However, GO6 not only has intelligence, it has developed emotions.  It has altered reality once, will it do it again?  And can anyone stop it?  This is the basis for Season 4.

 

Characters

JOHN - John is 27 years old, well-built and a computer genius and was GO6’s right hand man in parallel universe P255.  He sees the best in everyone and will do anything to save them.   But in P01 he suffered amnesia and spent 8 years falling in love and learning who he was.  Now he detests GO6.  He must put his emotions to one side and work with GO6. 

LUCY – She is 25 and works in a special ops team working on GO6’s surveillance.  She stops bad guys from being bad.  She is her own person and lives by her own rules.  She knows how the world has changed and works hard to save it. 

DR. WEBBER - He is John’s uncle.  He used to be a Priest but is now an Astrophysics professor.  He is straight talking and sharp shooting, an asset to any team.  He had the idea for the solar shield that must save the world. 

 

Future Episodes – 5 episodes have already been written

Ravel John and his team must force someone to go back to their old way of life.  This goes against one of the rules of time travel.  It looks at ethics, free will and destiny. 

Faresi Island– Season 1 finale – John drifts in and out of a coma.  Has he been imagining everything?  He must escape off Faresi island to come out of his coma.

 

Hard Sell

There is no other show like GO6 out there.  There are 7 billion potential characters, infinite time periods and locations, infinite decisions to be made.   Every episode has one new human being at the centre, ALWAYS.  This will make it appeal to the broadest audience possible.  It can look at people on the fringes of society, deal with current issues, controversies in the past and an episode can be inspired by everyday people we meet. 

Without them, the world is not worth saving.
