Anybody interested in the new Velma series? Amazon's The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power?
You've tried the rest now try the best. I put ChatGPT in charge as showrunner of a streaming series about the SCP Foundation. It was super easy, barely an inconvenience.
Prompt: Act as a Hollywood series showrunner. Use your knowledge of both the entertainment industry and all available SCP Foundation lore to outline a thirteen episode anthology about the SCP foundation for a streaming service. Give a synopsis for each episode.
Sure, here is an outline for a thirteen episode anthology series about the SCP Foundation:
Episode 1: "SCP-173" - The series begins with the containment breach of SCP-173, one of the most dangerous and well-known SCP objects, and the efforts of a team of Foundation agents to recapture it.
Episode 2: "SCP-096" - The Foundation receives reports of a mysterious creature that causes extreme violence in those who see its face. A team is sent to investigate and contain the creature, known as SCP-096.
Episode 3: "SCP-682" - The Foundation receives reports of a monstrous creature that has been destroying everything in its path. A team is sent to investigate and contain the creature, known as SCP-682.
Episode 4: "SCP-087" - The Foundation receives reports of a mysterious staircase that leads to an infinite descent. A team is sent to investigate and contain the object, known as SCP-087.
Episode 5: "SCP-914" - The Foundation receives reports of a strange machine that can improve or enhance objects placed into it. A team is sent to investigate and contain the object, known as SCP-914.
Episode 6: "SCP-999" - The Foundation receives reports of a creature that has the ability to heal any injury. A team is sent to investigate and contain the creature, known as SCP-999.
Episode 1: "SCP-049" - The Foundation receives reports of a mysterious figure claiming to be a plague doctor. A team is sent to investigate and contain the creature, known as SCP-049.
Episode 2: "SCP-085" - The Foundation receives reports of a sentient photograph. A team is sent to investigate and contain the object, known as SCP-085.
Episode 3: "SCP-093" - The Foundation receives reports of a strange stone that causes hallucinations in those who look at it. A team is sent to investigate and contain the object, known as SCP-093.
Episode 4: "SCP-682" - The Foundation receives reports of a monstrous creature that has been destroying everything in its path. A team is sent to investigate and contain the creature, known as SCP-682.
Episode 5: "SCP-999" - The Foundation receives reports of a creature that has the ability to heal any injury. A team is sent to investigate and contain the creature, known as SCP-999.
Episode 6: "SCP-066" - The Foundation receives reports of a mysterious creature that appears to be a child. A team is sent to investigate and contain the creature, known as SCP-066.
These are my suggestions for a series. The episodes can be more detailed and elaborate but this is a rough idea of how a series could be set up.
Interesting. ChatGPT took some of the most popular and well lnown objects and proposed an episode featuring each one. There are twelve episodes and I asked for 13. Maybe the first episode can be a standalone pilot. I wanted it as a single one and done season but it broke it into two seasons.
It is missing something though.
Prompt: Can you create a story arc for the series and explain how the arc unifies most of the episodes?
Sure, here is a potential story arc for the series:
The series follows a team of Foundation agents, led by a seasoned agent named Jack, as they are tasked with containing and studying anomalous entities known as SCP objects. The team's goal is to keep the objects and their existence a secret from the general public, while also studying them in order to understand and potentially control their abilities.
As the series progresses, it is revealed that there is a shadowy organization known as "The Serpent's Hand" that seeks to free the SCP objects and use their abilities for their own gain. The Foundation agents must not only contain the SCP objects, but also battle against The Serpent's Hand in order to keep them out of the wrong hands.
Throughout the series, the team encounters various SCP objects, each with their own unique abilities and dangers. As they study and contain these objects, they begin to unravel the mysteries surrounding The Serpent's Hand and their true purpose.
The story arc unifies the episodes by having the team of agents as the constant element across the episodes, and having them face different SCP objects while they also have to deal with the Serpent's Hand. This means that each episode would have its own self-contained story while also advancing the overarching story of the series.
In addition, the series could also focus on the personal lives of the agents and how their encounters with SCP objects impact them, with the story arc would tying together the personal and professional lives of the agents.
Wonderful. We introduce a GoI (Group of Interest) to act against the protagonists. I think this is a good choice and can also later help introduce the Global Occult Coalition into the series.
I love it. The fans love it. Since this is legitimate and definitely not a way for me to launder the windfall from a Gotham City caper, nnoooo, let's extend this beyond thirteen episodes.
Prompt: Can you suggest a cliffhanger for this season's Episode 6: "SCP-066" that can lead to a new season two story arc?
Certainly, here's a potential cliffhanger for the season 1 finale:
In Episode 6: "SCP-066," the team is sent to investigate and contain the creature known as SCP-066, which appears to be a child. As the team conducts their investigation, they begin to suspect that there may be more to SCP-066 than they initially believed. The episode ends with the team discovering a hidden underground facility where they find a group of children who are being experimented on by the serpent's hand.
The cliffhanger for the episode would be the team being ambushed by the serpent's hand while they attempt to rescue the children, and being captured. The last thing we see is a close-up of the team leader, Jack, with a look of determination on his face, suggesting that he is not going to give up and that he will find a way to escape.
This cliffhanger could lead to a new season 2 story arc where the team escape and work to uncover the serpent's hand's true purpose, and the connection between SCP-066 and the experiments on the children. It also raises questions about the foundation's role in the experiments and whether they have been compromised by the serpent's hand.
It could also introduce new SCP objects and anomalous entities to the team and explore the moral and ethical implications of containing and studying these entities.
Oh, that's good! The militant GoI that fights against what the SCP Foundation does is doing their own containment and research. Why would they be doing that? Is something from the Foundation's past going to be uncovered? Maybe not everything is as it seems for the protagonists. Also the series can give some time to focus on the SCP Foundation's Ethics Committee.
Time to call Netflix!
