      For a series a logline should describe the universe that many stories are being told in. A limited series is a bit different as it is more like a huge movie with one compelling arc.

      I am not sure if Nazis are still an issue in 61.  By then we had Eastern and Western Germany.  So I am not sure that the date works for that reason.

      In 60’s Cold War divide Germany a British spy falls in love with a with a woman putting his mission at risk to stop the last remaining nazis from obtaining Uranium.

      Hi Craig. Thanks for the feedback. Hmm – I can’t really change too much as I’ve already written it. Its set on the French Riviera. Thanks for the logline though.

      You can rewrite. Just saying. Every rewrite makes it better.

      I am rewriting after a sale. Rewrites are real writing – just some advice.

      In the 60’s far right politics was not popular in Europe. Something to consider.

        It’s good. It has a lot to offer. I see serious potential in it. However, I’m never a fan of dates like 1961. That should be in the story to give the mindset of where we are, but I never felt it was relevant to any logline.

          Agree with Leviathan. on the matter of specifying a date.   That may be necessary in a logline for a biographical or historical script.  But for a work of fiction, it is usually better to give a general time period unless the fictional story is embedded in a non-fictional event, such as  D-Day, the fall of Constantinople, the start of the Meiji Restoration.  Which does not appear to be the case with this story.

            Yeah I was wondering that. I kept it in there because someone thought it would be a 90-year-old Nazi.

            Hmm. Perhaps I’ll chop off “1961” for the series logline. Keep it for the pilot logline.

              i’m not sure whether “Nazi” is right. The antagonist is a double agent. An American agent who worked for the Nazis and is simply a pawn. Less a twist and more something slowly revealed to us. I dunno – perhaps for simplicity I should keep “Nazi”.

                Also – I managed to get a request with this logline.

                I also got one with the very earliest one…

                A retired spy living the high life on the French Riviera must confront his dark, shameful past when he is blackmailed into entrapping a Nazi war criminal.

                And this middle one…

                In 1961, a British double agent is blackmailed with his past crimes by a former colleague, and forced to spy on a suspected Nazi war criminal, now an American jet-setter living on the French Riviera.

                And the very oldest (which I began with)…

                A rich playboy with a dark past is summoned back to his old life as a spy – but is soon entangled in a complex web of sex, betrayal and deception.

                I managed a read request on BL with that one (which probably means nothing ha).

                I mean – perhaps one of these would be good for pilot loglines? I dunno.
