Title: Supernatural- Into the Black OR Echo Trail OR On the Edge OR ___ (it's negotiable - suggest more in the comments!)
Premise: 500 years after the adventures of Sam & Dean, humanity has moved to the stars beyond and set up a new home. Monsters have followed them there and find the frontier as appealing as mankind... Someone will have to protect the innocent, while trying to stay a step ahead of the oppressive government that's almost as much as a threat as the monsters.
Captain Lori Walker - owner and captain of the ship the group of hunters use (casting pick or alternate)
Michael "Patch" Wesson - doctor of the ship and primary researcher (casting pick)
Kris Argento - tech whiz of the ship (maybe, ideas?)
Jin - pilot of the ship (casting pick - oh I so wish)
Scrap Heap - engineer of the ship (casting pick maybe)
mid season addition (casting pick or this one or this one [gotta have a kentucky girl])
Possible companion on CW schedule: I'll leave this aside since I'm not much one for programming. (feel free to suggest!) No, this is not "just" shameless self promotion. Part of why I undertook that project is because the idea that Firefly/Serenity is 500 years in the future of Supernatural fit so well I had to give it life somehow. This show wouldn't even have to use my crew (let's pick up the actors from Bloodlines, why not?), a new one could be invented (invent your own in the comments! good ones might get stolen a guest spot). Still, the ability to bring in a whole other fandom (that already has a lot of overlap obviously) while possibly adding the great Joss Whedon into the set up... then you combie Supernatural's style, the western genre, and sci-fi genre, it would all be just too perfect to pass up. If I could get all the rights straightened and get everyone to play nice together, this would be my life's dream to see this live. Crazier crossovers have happened for real...
But, not every first idea makes it the first time (not even Kripke's) so here's another, more adaptable pitch:
While rewatching through Supernatural's season 6 it hit me after finishing Frontierland: I know I said that a great spinoff would be a prequel with Samuel Colt but now? I'll admit I was wrong. Wait, let me finish.
Remembering also the 50's episode, in my opinion the best spinoff would be an anthology of past hunters throughout time. Season 1 could be a year with Samuel Colt, maybe on a quest to make the gun, maybe just a case that was a challenge. Season 2 could then deal with Elliot Ness. Perhaps following his training, perhaps an arc where he cleans up Bloodlines the mob & monsters. Season 3 could follow an ancient Roman hunter. Season 4 a middle ages priest/monk that establishes the Men of Letters. Heck you could even revisit previous eras so Colt or Ness or Winchesterus could get a second season. You could even do seasons in the future! Plus with such a set up you would have a method by which to continue the property indefinitely.
Though I have no idea what it should be called. SPN: History? SPN: Hunters of the Ages? SPN: Then?
Hmmmm... None of those would well allow seasons in the future. But that could be given up. So what would you call it? What would be your pick for period, characters, and arc? And would you want to watch it? I know I would.
Please, CW. Take my money.
(though if they won't... maybe I should hold my own fan fiction contest...)
