Finding Haven is a projected one-hour supernatural/adventure series in the mold of Supernatural, Torchwood, and an adult-aimed Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
It would fit best in the ten-o'clock hour of Network Television, or on a Cable Network such as FX or Showtime, and expects to attract a viewership 18-49.
Beyond casual viewers, the series will encourage a dedicated group of internet-savvy fans
with stories tied to real-life unsolved mysteries throughout history (why did Jack the Ripper disappear after only 5 victims?),
multiple intriguing details ("that wild Opening Theme's based on what Mary Kelly sang before she was murdered!")
and by reimagining music from the last 2 centuries as driving Rock, Rap and Jazz by today's hottest young groups,
which will then be released in yearly special-edition sets.
Individual Episodes are done-in-one investigations of aggressive and horrible phenomena, hazards that can only be addressed
by a team willing to risk their lives and souls to protect humanity-at-large, and well prepared to use unconventional means.
There is also an arc for each Season, as we unfold the mystery of Tom Harper, follow his redemption as a human being,
and forge the Haven Foundation team into a family.
Tom Harper's been released from prison by the secretive Haven Foundation,
a team dedicated to saving humanity from the supernatural forces it refuses to see.
But he has a secret of his own that may endanger them all: an ancient horror he's hunted for over a century
that has possessed his best friend, slaughtered his wife, and left Tom gifted and cursed with near-eternal life.
Finding Haven will follow the destructive trail of the fiend and its spawn,
will confront The Foundation's true and hidden purpose,
will seek salvation for a man out of his time, in an age that's forgotten the worth of a human soul ...
