Development Pitch

The Revisionists ask the question - what if one man could collect all of the information throughout the world and use that to alter reality itself? By doing so, what if he could change the past? If you had such power, what would you change and how much damage would doing so change the future? Cal Trove is the richest man in the world. Everyone has a Trove phone, computer, tablet, television and more. In fact, most people don't know how far Cal's power extends. He is an infamous recluse, living on his private island, surrounded by his most trusted employees. Now he has invited several of his college friends. He says he has something new to show them - Revision. He has taken the Mandela Effect, made it real, and can now alter reality. He wants his friends to help him change the world. The problem is Cal is more than a little unstable. As his friends dig deeper into Trove's world, the shocking horror of what he's done, and what he will do, becomes evident. Now, they have to sacrifice themselves and possibly commit horror of their own, to stop him.
