21Million Productions Ltd signs production agreement with UK production house Get Shorty for the making of the TV series prequel “The Discovery”
19 sees a collaborative agreement for the TV project to make the Prequel pilot trailer and an agreement in principle to work on the making of Season 1 of 8 episodes.
“We really love what Nick is doing with the story line for the TV show which he has written using his deep technical knowledge of crypto currencies and Blockchain and his natural leaning towards conspiracy theories and a dislike of banks” says Alex Dawe, Partner and Director of Content at Get Shorty Entertainment.
This is not the first time 21Million Productions Ltd has worked with Get Shorty Entertainment https://getshorty.net/entertainment/ which saw them collaborate on the Crypto Game Pitch Show, in early 2018, where entrepreneurs al la Dragons Den and Shark Tank pitch their ICO projects to a panel of investors and judges. A competition format which resulted in the projects getting help and funding. The pilot episode can be seen here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=reLc3bThqr8
“We have worked with Alex before on the gameshow concept and we like working with Get Shorty who are easy to deal with and a leading creative company” explains Nick Ayton Executive Producer & Writer 21Million Productions Ltd. “The gameshow was universally heralded as a great concept but didn’t go into production as the crypto bear run in 2018 suffered a distinctive correction”. “So the concept was shelved but the relationship with the Get Shorty team remained good”.
Storyline Content: The conspiracy centred on Bitcoin and the crypto markets continues at pace where each month new information emerges on who maybe Satoshi Nakamoto and who are the people that can now influence the Bitcoin markets. Is it the institutions have made their moves as many believe the FED is behind BTC and Walls street now controls BTC price. With the Tether pump and dump discovery now under investigation the very basis of the crypto revolution continues to come under
regulatory scrutiny and the industry is starting to eat itself. The rumours continue and some of the original figureheads are revealing themselves, stalwarts like David L Chaum with his new Elixxir project, the founder of DigiCash and the father of the Cypherpunk generation.
“There are a lot of conspiracies and content to play with along with other emerging pervasive technology that sits alongside Blockchain” says Nick. “Moves like Quantum Computing and the Singularity impact of AI and Machine Learning, as well as the revelations that all devices now contain spyware”. “This offers rich content to write a new season that explores where the Bitcoin Revolution is heading, who is behind it and the impact of other dark forces and power brokers that have entered the game”.
“And the prequel story immediately sets hares running introducing some early tech theories that should get the core community engaged”.
