OUR FULL SERIES STORY PITCH

TEASER TRAILER

A TV SERIES YOU’D LOVE TO WATCH! but a future you’re desperate to avoid..

The world’s first sky city is humanity’s last hope for survival because climate change is rendering the earth’s surface uninhabitable. The guiding force behind this city is the chief architect, Adrien Rousseau, who once was a struggling refugee before he fought his way up through the rungs of society to become an advocate for downtrodden refugees everywhere. He has mysteriously disappeared and his disappearance has put the world’s future in jeopardy. So his wife hires her former lover, a bounty hunter who finds missing people, to locate him before the city falls from the sky, driving humanity to extinction.

Our protagonist is Azzan, this brooding bounty hunter who’s a clever navigator of this dystopian world of 2248. He speaks multiple languages; he straddles the worlds of the rich and poor; and his secret weapon, which makes him one if the best, is a psychological condition known as synesthesia, effectively making him a great human lie detector. But he also carries this heavy burden of a dark past which constantly haunts him. 

His objective is to travel across this dystopian world and locate deported sky citizens because each of them has a story to tell that will ultimately lead Azzan to the missing architect, Adrien Rousseau.

You see, the backbone of the story is finding Rousseau, but along our journey, we’re going to meet all these different people from various ethnic and cultural backgrounds. Eeach of them will share their stories of struggle and how they ultimately reached SKY CITY HAYA. 

Azzan’s journey to find Rousseau will not be easy. Dangerous forces are hunting him down to stop him from uncovering the truth. He must find Rousseau before it’s late and humanity loses its last chance at survival up in the sky. But in doing so, Azzan will finally face these demons, which have spent years haunting him. 

SKY CITY HAYA is a personal story about human struggle, loss and redemption, while also touching on larger themes such as climate change, social inequality and how the steps we take today will create the world we’ll have to live with tomorrow. And this is why SKY CITY HAYA is the most relevant sci-fi TV series for our time.

CLIMATE CHANGE IS REAL AND WE HAVE TO ACT NOW!

Scientists have a consensus that to meet the Paris climate goals, by 2050, carbon emissions will have to fall by half each decade and we will have to have to invent technologies to extract twice as much carbon from the atmosphere as the entire planet’s plants now do. Nevertheless, scientists have confidence in the ingenuity of humans bolstered by their appreciation for climate change, which is, after all, a human invention.

Below is a list of links to very informative climate change articles. Please get informed and if you have suggestions, we’d love to hear from you!

Amazing article on climate change (full article on next document)

Amitav Ghosh / Indian novelist who's new book length essay The Great Derangement is about why we are not treating climate change more seriously 

https://www.amitavghosh.com

chrestomather@yahoo.in

Read Sergei Petrovskii's phytoplankton population modelling which shows a crash at +6 degrees resulting in global hypoxia (inadequate oxygen). That in itself opens a Pandora's box of problems not yet understood - incl no more air travel (jets won't work) and ozone depletion (no O2 = no O3) roasting us all with UVb radiation. Reality is, we can barely comprehend the cataclysmic consequences we've set in motion.
