In a parallel universe inside of an infinite space and time, there is a world where anything is possible. Imagine for a moment that inside of this world is a place where our favorite shows and movies have combined to make the ultimate hybrid. What would they look like? How would it even work? Here are some examples…
Jurassic Parks and Recreation
After an eccentric billionaire finds a way to bring dinosaurs back to life, he enlists the help of a quirky staff to open his theme park. However when a tropical storm threatens the integrity and security of the park, this rag-tag group of misfits goes on a series of heartfelt misadventures to regain public favor. Even through the ups and downs of their interpersonal relationships, they do their best to make sure that the park is restored and no one gets brutally eaten. However on this island, the only thing more powerful than nature is the power of friendship. And velociraptors.
Ender’s Game of Thrones
Space Winter is coming. In a time where different alien races all vie for total control of the universe, one planet holds the key to victory. It is a child who’s mind is the most masterful weapon, but he keeps getting distracted by so much space nudity. As new heroes emerge and major other characters unexpectedly die, no one is safe. It seems as though an all out war is imminent and as the forces grow, alliances are made through secret betrayals. Yet when all is said and done, will humanity be restored? Or is it one giant game where you either win, or scream about how nothing is fair and people keep dying and the books won’t even be finished before the author dies. It all lies within the hands of a child.
Mad Max Men
In a post apocalyptic future, a roving gang of well dress men with slicked back hair travel the countryside pitching ideas to make copious amounts of money. As they encounter violent, lawless societies with access to war-like weaponry, these men drink, smoke, kill, conspire to cheat on their wives and backstab each other all in the name of getting credit for promotions and ideas.
However the longer they journey, the more secrets are revealed which shed light on the characters that seemed so transparent. The idea of right and wrong is questioned and the only true solution to their problems is a cage where two men enter, and one man leaves as a killer…pitch man.

Promising not to get involved with any of them, the apartment gets thrown in to a tizzy when this girl starts bringing home an older new gentleman. Suddenly, everyone seems to be harboring a dark secret and no one is who they appear to be. In this off beat, fun, and morally corrupt tale of espionage while learning to live with goofball roommates, can this crew get past their differences and learn to function as a unit? Or will someone be tortured until it is revealed that love and truth are not mutually exclusive?
