Stand-alone episodes with a revolving cast determined to enter the psyche of viewers and leave behind irrational, unrealistic, or environmentally triggered fears and an ending that will be anything but happy!

      Great pitch.

      But not a logline. You may want to use the word anthology.

      Back to the drawing board.

      When you write a logline for a series you describe the world/universe the stories will be told in.  You are describing the hopeful outcome.

      Look at “Black Mirror”

      An anthology that focus on people struggling against societal norms driven by technology.

        Who’s the protagonist?
        The goal and conflict is not clear.
        Who are these people? What kind of show is this?
        Fiction or reality TV?
        How do they enter the psyche of the viewers?
        What’s the genre?

        Good questions!

        Fiction, multiple genres. Every episode has a different protagonist and antagonist/antagonistic problem. This is why I have been having a hard time coming up with a logline…. It is as CraigDGriffiths said, an anthology – I will put that in the revised logline.

        How do they enter the psyche of the viewer, now that is a question that I will be thinking about as I fall to sleep. I would like to think each episode has components that are visually or psychologically disturbing.

        Being a TV series and not a movie you should write a short synopsis for the overall show and a logline for each episode. How many episodes in the first season? What themes do you want to explore?

        In the pitch I have synopses for 17 episodes to be considered for season 1, and I plan on listing the pilot script (hopefully the website allows my whole pitch to be listed with the pilot?) I am a newbie there and have a lot of reading to do still.  Asking about the theme sparked me into googling genre VS theme, and so I guess there are multiple genres but the theme stays the same: things could always be worse.
