Title: Curse Genre: Anthology Drama Series Logline: “In early 1800s America, an African slave is granted immortality and fights against the injustice facing the black community through the centuries as a vigilante. Pilot Logline: After a slave is revived from the dead, he struggles to free the other slaves and kill his manipulative plantation owner.
As variable suggested.
He’s immortal. He’s a SJW with decades to fight slavery, to learn from his mistakes and failures, to try, try , and try again. And he can’t instigate one successful slave rebellion before the Civil War? Not one?
Not credible even as make-believe, wishful-thinking-history. Not believable given how history actually played out.
If you want an audience to suspend disbelief and buy into the the premise, then the super-awesome protagonist, needs to fight a super-awesome antagonist, someone with equal power but opposite motives. A SJW needs a nemesis, should face seemingly insurmountable and believable obstacles.
