Development Pitch

The premise of this story - straight protagonists wind up in a parallel reality where homosexual relations are a societal and religious norm - is unprecedented. The straight audience will get a unique chance to step in the shoes of gay people and experience what it feels like to be an unwanted sexual minority. The LG audience will get a unique chance to experience how the world might operate if they were the majority. (The G-World is presented in many ways superior to the world we live in) The topic of a "changed reality" is extremely attractive to viewers whether it has to do with a changed body/age ("Freaky Friday"), a changed timeline ("Back to the Future"), or a changed social position ("Rich and Poor"), etc. What makes the story even more irresistible is that it's not just about love and relationships. It has other elements of a classical successful story: - The hero finds her/himself in a new reality. - The hero has adventures in the new reality: rescues friends and defeats the villain. - The hero makes a difference in the new reality. The characters of the story are not too complex but they go through some changes and experience personal growth. The story will appeal to those who like sci-fi elements such as the Multiverse theory, mind travel hypothesis, and growing babies in "orchards" using the IVF technology. Since all the success ingredients are in place, the adaptation of this story should make a remarkable movie or TV series.
