Conquering space can be a thankless business.
After the discovery of life on Saturn's moon Titan, the headstrong but fading CEO, guilt-ridden astronaut and secret-laden cadet within a private space firm are torn between the dangers of a manned mission there and using the find to give their lives renewed purpose.
A 1-hour serialized, character-driven drama set in the near future, revolving around three lives in a private space firm known as CosmosNow (CoNo): its brilliant, but antisocial founder losing control of his company; former pilot and now manager of lunar ops struggling to move on after losing her same-sex spouse and child; a wide-eyed student entering CoNo’s academy based on an entrance exam fudged by her favorite teacher. Probes finding life on Saturn’s moon Titan offer each an opportunity at redemption and purpose, despite the dangers of traveling there. It explores not what it means to be human, but what is the concept each character struggles to serve, and pay the price for, called humanity, (the driving question) and how the Titan find help each character achieve it. Despite this, each -for different reasons - has an unspoken disinterest in Earth. From an abstract concept to the deeply personal?
Comps: The First. Ad Astra. For All Mankind. Empire.
CoNo is what SpaceX and Blue Origin could become if they started in the ‘90s. The real-life challenges, dangers, dreams, and rewards. Realities of living/working/tourism on the moon and foothold on Mars. The start of a space faring civilization. Dreams humans had at the beginning of the space race, seen through 3 different eyes. Nothing presented is scientifically impossible.
JOHN BLAISÉ (60): Founder and CEO of CoNo, a space empire: launch systems, lunar base/resort, outpost on Mars. A loner. Antisocial. Unable to form deep, empathic connections.
MACKENZIE (MACKI) WILLARD (19): Student at the Space Technology, Engineering, Exploration, Mathematics & Science Academy (STEEMS) founded by John. From a lower, middle-class family and first to attend a post-secondary school.
YEVETTE KOENIG (41): Lunar Ops Manager. Her same-sex spouse and their child are killed in a plane crash a few years prior. Wearing a stoic façade, she questions her life and purpose.
ETHAN PAULSON (33): John’s nephew. Part of the lunar mineral business. Has a veiled dislike of living in John’s shadow. Ironically, he displays human kindness and connection John cannot.
