Development Pitch

The QotG series mirrors current world events in an adventure packed with giants, monsters, and magic. With four distinct cultures, viewers watch characters with conflicting world views come to the realization that if they don’t work together, no one will survive. Ep. 1 Dust of Earth is the culture of farmers and merchants who value hard work and productivity and view themselves as those who feed the world. Includes a sub-culture of rebellious outcast gypsy warriors who become allies to the Guardian and travel with him through the four realms. Ep. 2 Drop of Water is the culture of artisans and spiritualists who seek only to create and philosophize—and prefer to be left alone. Their leader has a lot of secrets. Ep. 3 Gust of Wind is the culture that values knowledge over wisdom and considers themselves superior to the rest. Anyone who questions their teachings is disparaged and forced into servitude. Ep. 4 Spark of Fire is the culture where the most base human instincts are expressed crudely, and all conflicts are resolved with violence. Four realms. Four cultures. Co-existing under one psychotic ruler whose only goal is to find and kill the Guardian whose kingdom he has stolen. But Guardian King Jakin is bound by an ancient oath to protect the world from the self-destruct mechanism that was activated when his cousin usurped the throne. Jakin must retrieve the broken pieces of an ancient artifact and restore the balance of magic before it's too late, and the clock is ticking.
