An archeological dig leads to a shocking discovery that proves time travel is not only possible, but that the Russians accomplished the feat in the 80’s (resulting in the Chernobyl catastrophe). Now a U.S. crash project must immediately begin endeavors to study and surmount the achievement.
“Discoveries” is a quickly paced, very well written, pilot that would lead in to a series with a lot of commercial potential. The show has an excellent premise and structure and the pilot lays the foundation for several seasons worth of self-contained episodic as well as ongoing serial story arcs. The strong characters are enough to keep you interested in the pilot and story, but luckily that is far from this script’s only strength, as the overall high quality of writing made this teleplay a pleasure to read. The current visuals for the pilot are very good, and I have no doubt they will become even more interesting in future episodes as more is revealed. It’s easy to envision “Discoveries” being renewed season after season, as the show will be sure to appeal to any and all fans of sci-fi/action/adventure TV. That, coupled with a very unique take on the time travel theme makes the show incredibly interesting, and yet still manages to stays grounded in reality. The pilot has a captivating teaser at the beginning, great reveals and hooks at each act break, and gets into some pretty cool territory that easily shows how this show will only get better with each subsequent episode.
