Re: Thomas Edison crime fighter? NBC pilot in development
has had H.G. Wells (a woman whose brother posed as the author of her books) as a time traveling agent, Thomas Edison, Nikola Tesla, M.C. Escher, and Philo Farnsworth as designers of the warehouse and/or its tech (the guns are called Teslas and the audio/video communicators Fansworths), so it would be cool to get a Steampunk prequel series in the vein of The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen
and The Wild Wild West
starring various historical figures.
'First Contact' is the tale of a man who just wants to cash in on his creation so he can get wasted on an island full of naked women, but his fans keep insisting that he's a saintly visionary who has profoundly altered the world. AKA - 'I Don't Want to be a Statue: The Gene Roddenberry Story.'
