Hey guys, I took the time to compile a pitch for the newly announced Assassin's Creed series on Netflix or basically how I imagine the series going. If you guys have any suggestions, ideas or anything else be sure to comment on it. The pitch will be the text down below:
Recently I heard the news that the popular video game franchise “Assassin’s Creed” is coming to Netflix. While we don’t know anything about the project and seeing as though I’m a huge fan of this franchise, I do have a pitch in how I would see the project going.
While Assassin’s Creed was originally brought to live-action via the 2016 movie, box office sales pretty much denied it of any sequel. However, while it was a big move to do the movie, I honestly don’t think it was the right move. Rather a tv series would’ve been a better fit as we know the series is very complex in story-telling, character development, and world-building. Something that would be much better as a tv series than being resized and reduced to a 2-hour blockbuster which leads me to my pitch.
I think the series should follow the stories of the main games being: ACI, The Ezio Trilogy, ACIII, ACIV, AC Unity, AC Syndicate, AC Origins, AC Odyssey. However if for any reason Netflix or Ubisoft decides to jump into an all fresh story, some historical periods I would like to see be brought to life are Azuchi-Momoyama Period (1573-1603 Ancient Japan), First Shogun (1192- Ancient Japan), expand upon the British East Indian Company (1600-1850), or fresh stories for the time periods seen within the games.
If we were to go forward with the retelling of the games’ stories, I’d probably have each episode cover a sequence of the game (i.e. the first episode will cover sequence 1 of the game continuity). You may be thinking about how this would work. Well, we could have episodes be around 45-60 minutes long which is roughly the run time for the “Witcher” episodes (another video game adapted TV series) as well as for the Netflix series “Bridgerton”. Of course, each season would vary in episodes due to the fact many of the games surpass 10 sequences thus exceeding Netflix’s normal episode count of 10. However, this could be fixed by cutting out less important sequences or plot points.
Probably the hardest task is finding a way to contain all of Ezio’s story into one season, seeing as though he has 3 games where he’s the main protagonist (Assassin’s Creed II, Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood, and Assassin’s Creed Revelations). All of which are fundamental for his story arc. Perhaps 2 seasons or 3 would be best. (Maybe 2 since both Brotherhood and Revelations have 9 sequences that I’m sure storywise can be reduced to 5 episodes each)
My ideal episodes per season (if it gained popularity to have more than one season)
- Assassin’s Creed Season 1 (Altair):7 memory blocks/sequences: 7 episodes (each sequence is one episode)
- Assassin’s Creed Season 2 (Ezio Part 1): 12 sequences if excluding 12 and 13: 10-12 episodes (including Christina memories and extra Rose content from the book)
- Assassin’s Creed Season 3 Part 1 (Ezio Part 2): 9 sequences: 5 episodes (sequences 1-3 one episode, 4-5 one episode, 6-7 one episode, 8 and 9 one episode, respectively)
- Assassin’s Creed Season 3 Part 2 (Ezio Part 3): 9 sequences: 6 episodes (sequence 1 one episode, 2-first half of 3 one episode, the second half of 3-4 one episode, 5 one episode, 6-7 one episode, 8-epilogue one episode)
- Assassin’s Creed Season 4 (Conner): 9 sequences excluding Haytham i.e. Sequences 1-3: 9 episodes (sequence 4 one episode, sequence 5 one episode, sequence 6 one episode, sequence 7 one episode, sequence 8 one episode, sequence 9 one episode, sequence 10 one episode, sequence 11 one episode, sequence 12-epilogue one episode)
- Assassin’s Creed Season 5 (Edward): 12 sequences: 9 episodes (sequence 1-first half of 2 one episode, the second half of sequence 2-first half of sequence 3 one episode, the second half of sequence 3-first half of sequence 4 one episode, the second half of sequence 4-5 one episode, sequence 6-7 one episode, sequence 8 one episode, sequence 9 one episode, sequence 10-abstergo interlude 4 one episode, sequence 11-epilogue)
- Assassin’s Creed Season 6 (Shay): 6 sequences: 5 episodes (sequence 1 one episode, sequence 2 one episode, sequence 3 one episode, sequence 4-5 one episode, sequence 6 one episode)
- Assassin’s Creed Season 7 (Arno): 12 sequences: 10 episodes (Prologue-sequence 1 one episode, sequence 2 one episode, sequence 3 one episode, sequence 4-5 one episode, sequence 6-7 one episode, sequence 8-9 one episode, sequence 10 one episode, sequence 11 one episode, sequence 12 one episode, sequence 13 – Dead Kings one episode)
- Assassin’s Creed Season 8 (Jacob/Evie): 9 sequences: 9 episodes (sequence 1-2 one episode, sequence 3-first half of sequence 4 one episode, the second half of sequence 4-first half of sequence 5 one episode, the second half of sequence 5-first half of sequence 6 one episode, the second half of sequence 6-first half of sequence 7, the second half of sequence 7-first half of sequence 8 one episode, the second half of sequence 8-first mission of sequence 9 one episode, the rest of sequence 9 one episode)
- Assassin’s Creed Season 9 (Bayek) : 26 parts/sequences : 10 episodes
