CURSED DEEDS OF MAN’S ANCIENT PAST RESURRECTED
As great empires have risen and fallen, it has taken millennia for men to define the forces of good and evil. Contemplate that we open doors, allowing cursed deeds of man's past to be resurrected into the present. It breathes again and is plaguing Oliver Hall and his 1923 British Everest expedition team. After the unexplained disappearance of one of their porters and the grizzly death of another, their Nepali guides voice superstitious beliefs making their situation impossible to ignore.
The mounting evidence comes into view as Hall and his second in command, Jonathan Tolbert, retrace their footsteps and hypothesize a frightening scenario. Shortly after discovering an inscribed ancient stone tablet, they believe they have inadvertently conjured the dark past, resurrecting an ancient Nepali curse. This supernatural reality jeopardizes their mission to summit Mount Everest and now threatens their lives. If they are to succeed and accomplish their goal, they must focus their minds on only two things: survive and reach the mountain's summit. They must find a way to combat and overcome the creature that has killed their men and is now hunting them.
A GENUINELY UNIQUE TALE
With the combination of Peak XV's characters, eras, settings, and storyline, there has never been a sweeping story like it told in filmmaking. Peak XV has vital ingredients to create a loyal following to drive its success as a premier limited series event.
A DUAL-TIMELINE, HISTORICAL FICTION AND ACTION THRILLER
Peak XV retells the early life and times of Siddhārtha Gautama as he created the beginnings of the Buddhist faith. Most Buddhist faithful know of Siddhārtha's sacrifices and spiritual journey, but little is known about what took place in his father's kingdom after Siddhārtha left.
Peak XV's story expands into fictional events after Siddhārtha abandoned his birthright as heir to his father's throne and how his family's actions transcend thousands of years to affect Oliver Hall and his 1923 British Everest expedition team. Peak XV's dual-timeline settings and Eastern and Western cultures' popularity offer broad appeal and interest to viewing audiences. Audiences don't have to practice Buddhism to relate to Peak XV's story. However, there are 535 million people worldwide that practice Buddhism. Most people have a level of interest and fascination with Nepal and Mount Everest.
Additionally, Peak XV incorporates the golden age of exploration, mysticism and interjects the paranormal. The Yeti (aka Abominable Snowman) also plays an integral role in Peak XV's storyline. For centuries the widespread supernatural phenomenon of this elusive cryptid has remained relevant in popular culture.
