If you tend to dig around the minutia \ focus on the little things like I do, you’ll begin to note the importance of real estate. No not the physical kind, but the limited time in which there is to tell a great story within the context of a fleshed out season.
Everyone’s time is so limited today for any number of reasons, and with a huge variety of things to watch on far more platforms than ever, we here behind TAIM don’t want to waste a second of yours. That will also include our ‘concept episodes,’ for lack of a more creative term at the moment.
As we envision them, these episodes will allow us to go in different directions through concepts already baked into TAIM’s DNA… Which is to say, because elements of romance and science fiction \ action are part of the backbone of this series, we want to expose our characters and you the audience to unique and thoughtful story lines.
Already written is a scifi script that focuses on all of them temporarily switching bodies; an action episode where Val and Sierra have to save the Valley’s men from themselves; or a romantic story in which Niles finds it harder to ignore his friend Veronica’s feelings for him. Not to mention the host of spoof episodes already written or outlined.
So this is all to say that we want to tell stories and have the TAIM team experience things you wouldn’t normally see happen in a dramedy series. However we also want it to make sense within the realm that they all inhabit, and EMH will be the main culprit for all of it. And also keep in mind we will never go for the low hanging fruit or use shock value as a crutch. We want to utilize your time and leave you wanting more TAIM.
