The Dream Maker, a proposal for a drama series

The Dream Maker

A proposal for a TV series

Created by Royal Darrah









NICOLA WRIGHT is a single, attractive psychiatrist around thirty years old with rich and powerful friends and a wealthy clientele.  She has the ability to hypnotize her patients into scripted dreams to treat their mental problems. But now her gifted ability to hypnotize her patients has become nothing more than just hypnotizing them into their own desired fantasy dreams.  This dream-making has become a medical ethics issue; Nicola’s walking a fine line between practicing psychiatry and playing God.  Nicola’s in great demand for her dream-making but somewhere along the way the compassion that led her into her profession has been supplanted by her passion to experiment on her patients to discover the limitations of her dream-making. She has just discovered with self-hypnosis she is capable of entering her own patient’s dreams.
Nicola’s dream making results in one of her patient's wives committing a horrible crime.
At a medical review board, Nicola is disbarred from practicing psychiatry.

She realizes that she doesn’t like either the person or the psychiatrist she has become.  She is devastated that her dream- making contribution resulted in a death.
She vows to herself never dream make again but is morally forced and drawn back into her dream making to save a young woman from killing herself.

From her self- hypnosis and entering dreams, Nicola learns that sometimes she can alter other people’s dreams in ways that are therapeutic but at other times her intervention uncovers suppressed memories or character traits that have disastrous effects.  

With her new-found gift, Nicola dedicates herself to healing minds, despite the dangers of subjecting herself to other people’s nightmares as well as their dreams.  She has no way of knowing if she’ll be able to emerge from any given session, nor can she be certain that she’ll be whole, mentally or physically, even if she does, but she’s willing to risk it.  She has become the Dream Maker.

Please let me know your comments on this and if you would like to read and give me feedback on the pilot script I have for this.

Sounds interesting - similar to the US show with the young female psychic who sees people's deaths/dying moments.

With the popularity of Inception in the cinemas there could be a slot for this now.

SPaGs:  practicing s/b practising

supplanted by her passion to experiment on her patients what her limitations are of her dream-making. to discover the limitations of her dream-making.

Keep it dream-making [with the hyphen] throughout [consistency]

She is devastated that her dream-making had contributed and contribution resulted in the a death.

She vows to herself never to dream-make again
