Villains S2

SUMMARY: 1974. Ten months after his driver and -- unbeknownst to him -- his wife attempted to unseat Terry Marsh from his position as ruler of Lynchester's criminal underworld, the Firm is getting its feet again with the aid of Big Eddie Acton, a legendary porn producer back in town with big ideas. However, the consequences of past actions are proving increasingly difficult to dodge -- as are Terry's still-mutinous wife, his restless subordinates, and an unexpectedly compelling new business associate.

TAGLINE: The boys are back.

I was getting nostalgic for all the [community profile] isurrendered  business, so I thought I'd dig my show back out and update it (not to mention that in the LJ/DW shift and with changes in image hosting, all my pictures went away, oops). So here it is once again. Anyone have fic ideas? Because I am shipping some of these like crazy...


PROMPT: A show about the beginnings of the Pinkerton Detective Agency. Can be historically AU if wanted (from 
[personal profile] be_themoon )
SHOW: The Diogenes Boys
GENRE: Crime procedural/historical drama. I played merry hell with some timeline issues, but it was too good a framing idea to pass up.
FORMAT: Each season has 22 episodes of about 50 minutes each. Rumors had been that CBS has originally wanted it to continue ratings boosts for Criminal Minds and CSI, but deals fell through after the first award-winning season. The show was then picked up for its second season by BBC America as part of the "Crime-Stopping Wednesdays" and paired with Ripper Street and Copper. Hey, a girl can dream...

***

In 1871, an all-consuming inferno raced through the city of Chicago. It burned for two whole days, leaving hundreds dead and over four square miles of the city leveled to the ground. The resulting chaos completely severed all lines of communication between the home office of the Pinkerton Detective Agency and the small number of agents that worked out of the Philadelphia office, a city referred to in the agency cypher code as "Diogenes". Together these Pinkerton detectives solve crimes the police are unable (or unwilling) to touch. Will their biggest case yet--infiltrating and breaking the notorious Molly Maguires gang--unify them, or will hidden loyalties and dangerous circumstances drive them fatally apart?

OPENING CREDITS: Gravel Walk - The Rogues

TITLE: Villains

PROMPT: None. Really, I just got bored.
TYPE: Period gangster drama (BBC/HBO co-production, 13 hour-long episodes)
SUMMARY: 1973. Gangster Terry Marsh is the undisputed king of Lynchester, a fading industrial city in the north of England. Undisputed, that is to say, except for whoever hired the gunman who shot him three weeks ago -- and Terry's beginning to suspect it was one of his own men. Meanwhile, rock demigod Johnny Marx is coming back to his hometown after spending six months and five continents trying to forget the death of his bandmate, setting off a chain of events that threatens to turn the entire business upside down.

TITLE THEME: The Animals -- House of the Rising Sun

TAGLINE: Take a walk on the wild side.

So a new show just went up over at the LJ comm (and it's pretty great, if you like "zombies are the good guys" stories!), and it reminded me that I had been meaning to post this for a while now.

The way the "I Surrender!" meme works sometimes means that you have to wait for someone else to do it first. If you're looking to jumpstart the meme again on your own journals, for any reason, here's some language that might be useful:
(REVERSE) I SURRENDER
1. Comment to this post with a basis of some TV show idea. (Science fiction show, medical drama, criminal procedure, etc...)
2. I will create a cast of characters, including the actors who'd play them.
3. There will be actor photos, character bios and show synopsis, among other things.
4. Post to your own journal!
Hope everyone around here is doing well. Happy TV show-making!

Name: Fae
Type: hour-long drama on BBC2
Synopsis: The realm of the faeries is always ruled by a queen. Lately, however, there have been a few upsets in the rule over the faerie realm. First, long-standing queen Sybil was overthrown and exiled by her daughter Brigit; after Brigit ruled for 20 years, she was in turn overthrown and exiled by a former member of her court, Adelaide. Brigit and her children have been exiled to a human city – the same one, in fact, where Brigit sent her own mother 20 years ago. Now, they’re forced to live together, re-learning how to get along with each other while plotting ways to get back their family’s rightful throne. The show focuses on the daily lives of both Brigit’s family, learning to make their ways masquerading as humans in the city, and Adelaide’s family and court, getting accustomed to being in control and fighting to keep the throne they have won.
Opening theme: In Caelum Fero by Karl Jenkins

TITLE: Beyond
PROMPT: None. (To tell you the truth, my thought process on this one largely went “Outcasts! So much promise! So much Hermione Norris! And yet... not quite! I FIX NOW. But still with Hermione Norris, because fuck yeah Hermione Norris!” Also it turned into a bit of a Spooks reunion when I wasn’t looking, because I’m predictable like that.)
TYPE: SF drama; 10-episode season on BBC1
TITLE THEME: Brian Jonestown Massacre -- You Look Great When I’m Fucked Up
SUMMARY: A military base on the planet Outbeyond is in the process of adjusting to the arrival of a group of civilian colonists when a bioengineered plague strikes and isolates them from the rest of the galaxy.

Type: Hour-long sci-fi drama on Fox: 13 episodes in the first season, 22 in the second.
Title Theme: La Roux -- Tigerlily


It’s 150 years in the future, and what happened to Tacey Bishop isn’t supposed to happen to anyone.

Six months ago, she was an ordinary medical student coming back from vacation with her boyfriend. Six months ago, he disappeared, and her personal data along with him -- according to the databank that tracks the citizens of the Settled Worlds, she no longer exists.

Stranded on Lungbarrow Hub, the galaxy’s biggest transit station, and working in a restaurant for room and board, Tacey’s abandoned all hope of making it home -- until her newest co-worker turns out to be a specialist bounty hunter who offers her a way back to the world, and a chance to find out what happened on the day her life disappeared.

If the people who stole it don’t get to her first.

Prompt: "A nightclub that caters to the supernatural as well as mortals run by an immortal." From [personal profile] jadekirk, here. It's a little switched up, but the basics are there.

Show: Nighthawks
Format: Hour-long neo-noir, Showtime or HBO, 15 episodes per season
Description: Carla and Iris thought they were as prepared as they could be when they opened Nighthawks. Nobody else in Pittsburgh was serving the Verities, and there's money to be had in a niche like that. Not just money, but secrets, and connections. Hang out at Nighthawks long enough, and you may even find what the Verities are here for. Lord knows the Onesies keep trying. There's no saying what that knowledge will get you, though — save for the fact that it's always more than you bargain for.

Ghosts, gods, monsters, myths — it's America, baby. You never know who might show up.

ANGELS UNAWARE
Genre: Fantasy/drama, hour-long format.
Opening theme: Thimble Island -- Rasputina
Synopsis: Every year, angels come of age and, as per an old tradition, are sent to Earth as last trial before adulthood. Left somewhere on Earth to go through a personal ordeal, they stumble their way through dealing with humanity, sometimes make friends, and fight to control abilities that never had this many triggers in Heaven. The story follows four of them through their struggles. In addition, all of them feel a call, pulling them towards parts unknown, a feeling they at first assume is part of the trial, but as events unfold, it starts to look like something else is calling to them, something no one thought actually existed.
