  • 2. Series Concept: This is a rough mind map I created to branch out the main ideas and key factors I will need to include while creating and designing my TV series. This was designed to remind myself what is included in a series. This is what goes in the background: Plot: Every episode there is a murder/ case to be solved. DCI Kennedy must be there to solve it, but something else unexpended ends up happening Theme: The main theme is crime/ drama (hybrid) there will be a slight hint of romance. In some episodes there will be action included. Title: King. This is because DCI Kennedy’s nickname by his fellow colleagues is King. Location: The show will be based in London, DCI Kennedy will mainly work in Peckham, I chose this place as I used to live there and know the area well. Sound: The soundtrack I want to incorporate is London grime, to create a fresh and youthful vibe into the series, I think this will go well with the story-lines I have created and also attract a wider audience. Characters: The protagonist is DCI Kennedy (King), his wife, work partner, his fellow colleagues and the ensemble cast/ supporting cast. Costume: The costume really doesn’t have that much relevance. As it is set in this period, the clothes will be modern. As for King he is a little shabby and doesn’t really look after himself or care much for his appearance. Diara Daisy Vassallo
  • 3. Concept Outline: The theme of this story will be crime/ drama (hybrid). It will not continuously be just crime and drama based, I will try to incorporate some comedy in there to keep it slightly light hearted. The characters included in my story will not be that extensive as I feel having a smaller cast makes it slightly more intimate and we as the audience can really connect to the characters instead of having to learn all these new characters and understand how they are all interlinked. I think the main characters I will have will be the DIC, his boss and his partner, and then for the episodes where there are cases I will have actors playing out those scenes. My story will be based on a DIC (Detective Chief Inspector) my inspiration for this story is from Luther, featuring Idris Elba. The DIC will face cases that intertwine with his personal life. Every episode there is a new case a new problem and a new drama. He is faced with major consequences based on his rational decisions, many people in his field doubt the way in which he works, yet he is one of the most respected detectives in his game even though he may not go about situations in the most ethical way. He gets the job done at the end of the day. I created a mood board to represent what kind of idea I was headed towards in a visual way: Diara Daisy Vassallo
  • 4. My 3 Ideas: I came up with 3 different ideas to help decide what kind of TV show I wanted to create. I first made mind maps of them and then in detail described what they were all about. See overleaf. IDEA 1: (I went with this idea) The main character is called DCI Kennedy. He is a detective living and working in Central London. The way in which he goes about his work is slightly corrupt, yet he always solves the case. His fellow colleagues know about his dark side. He has a wife who is struggling to keep their relationship going. Every episode includes a new case that he is working on with his Assistant. Somehow the cases and murders somehow link to him and intertwine with his personal life and sometimes it doesn't always work out the way he had planned for. The genre of this is a crime drama (hybrid). Some of the locations shown in the series will be London, interrogation rooms, crime scenes and offices. Diara Daisy Vassallo
  • 5. IDEA 2: This idea of a storyline is about 2 twin brothers in their 40's. They both have big names in the world of business and are doing very well for themselves. One of the twin brothers has a legal business but needed his twin to do a favour for him; the other twin brother has an illegal business in the world of drugs and smuggling. The bad brother now asks his brother for a favour this time and it's a tough decision he needs to make. Does he take the deal and suffer with the possible consequences or does he leave it and lose contact with his close brother. The series will be based in London. The plot themes are as follows: secrets, corruption, drugs, money, lying, loyalty and family. The genre of this series will be a crime drama (hybrid). IDEA 3: This last idea is probably not so favourable compared to the other 2. This is about 2 twin sisters who commit crimes together. They are extremely telepathic and communicate through their minds and feel no need to speak out loud meaning they are silent. The genre of this is crime, drama and fantasy. They commit crimes globally on a mass scale. There criminal technique is so good that there is no hard evidence for the police to prosecute them for any real crimes. They are watched by police all the time, yet the police don't know how they are doing it. Every episode there will be a new crime that they commit and the police and defectives trying to figure out how and why or even who has done it. Diara Daisy Vassallo

  • 7. Character Biographies: These are the 4 main characters, each episode there will be an entire new cast introduced and mixed in with the main cast (as listed below). DCI Kennedy: DCI Kennedy (also known as King by his fellow colleagues) is the main character. He features in every single episodes and the show is centred on his work and home life. He is a Detective Chief Inspector at The Peckham Police Station; he is also lives in Peckham with his wife Lauren Kennedy. They have no children as they are both so busy with work that they let their relationship come last. DI Williams: Detective Inspector Williams is King’s partner. Williams is a quiet and noble man and extremely loyal to King, even though he is a hard partner to work with. Williams is young and has come straight out of Policing school. He isn’t married and has no children. Lauren Kennedy: Lauren Kennedy is King’s wife; she works as a lawyer in central London. She is organised and loving towards King but she feels as if her relationship with him is disintegrating. She is having an affair with a man she works with, King doesn’t know this. Olivia (Ma'am): Olivia Riggins is Kennedy’s boss; she is firm and sharp with him as she knows what he is like when he gets too involved in a case/ murder. She has worked in the forces for a very long time and knows what Kennedy is like. In most episodes they have disagreements but it is always resolved. Diara Daisy Vassallo 3

Olly is linked with the hacking but will not confess. He is torn between to the law and being loyal to his friends. Ep 5- Masked Man: The next wannabe 'Jack the Ripper' is running through the streets of London day and night. The masked man goes by no name but is only recognisable by his mask. Kennedy and his team need to find the man before he kills any more innocent people. Kennedy finds it hard to balance out his work life and his home life. Ep 6- Mummy's Missing: When a young mother of 25 goes missing the husband is the first suspect. She leaves notes and clues as to where they will find her, dead or alive.

  • 9. Ep 8- Ring Ring: Kennedy has been released and is back at work. He receives a phone call from an anonymous caller telling him to meet him on London Bridge at 0800hrs that morning. As any usual Detective you don't go alone. Kennedy braves it and leaves Williams having to make a difficult decision on whether to tell Olivia or watch Kennedy’s back. Ep 9- Isn't Money Funny: A family report to the police a death in the family. A grandmother with millions in her inheritance suddenly dies. The police believe it to be a suicide yet the family are now wondering about the inheritance money and if it gets passed onto them? Kennedy suspect that is was a murder committed by the family. Ep 10- Seeking The Spotlight: Kennedy has decided to retire but it has to end with a bang, he lands London's top case, it's all over the news. A famous British actress goes missing at an awards ceremony. The media is full of questions and violent assumptions; it is up to Kennedy and Williams to find the truth. Photographs for Title Sequence: For my title sequence I had to take photographs to put into it. I wanted the style to be plain and classic, without much going on. I used bright lights and reduced the shutter speed to create the effect of a moving light. In my title sequence I edited the photos to make them look stronger and more vibrant. I then did another set of photographs with lights on. I did portrait stills and cut the image so it would only show half of the face. Diara Daisy Vassallo
