Short Summary

Myra Wetherby has run away from home. What she cannot outrun, however, are her so-called fits, strange visions of people and places, things she has never been able to explain. It is the empathic connection to those around her, however, which threatens her very sanity.

Taking up with a group of disavowed government mage spies, Myra learns how to control her unique powers, her Empathy, and discovers that she is not nearly as lost and alone as she had feared. Together they take on a rogue enemy scientist and win back the trust of their home agency of MI.

Development Pitch

The agents of M.I. would best be represented on screen in a TV series format, per its length, content, message, and diverse ensemble cast. The look and feel is more 'Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell', 'His Dark Materials' and even 'Good Omens' than something grittier, such as 'Umbrella Academy'. The series arc provides the long term emotional payoffs of the "found family" structure of character relationships while also providing a many-hued backdrop of different eras and locations from 1890s London to 1980s America. It's spy-craft meets sorcery -- two things of which audiences can never get enough.
