    Production Notes

    TV Series Premise:

    (A supernatural themed drama) There is a whole other world beyond the veil that actively interacts in people’s lives for the good or bad. It’s a constant battle between angels, demons, spirits, aliens, and other beings for the welfare or destruction of human souls.


    Things become very chaotic in the spirit world when a fallen angel impregnates a human woman. The main characters come to a realization that there are male angles, demons, and aliens that go around impregnating woman for the purpose of earthly dominance. Also, spiritual forces possess humans to do their bidding. It’s a world where some humans are puppets to spiritual forces. A world where some people are hybrids. A world where elves, dwarfs, aliens, vampires, werewolves, wizards, witches, demons and angels seek to destroy each other. The show centralizes on four college students that realize that they each are a hybrid of some sort. Each episode is about cause and effect. How the choices we make can lead to good or bad consequences. And how beings behind the scenes influence our decisions.
