This story is a cold open for a TV show. I thought of this show while at my author showcase a few months ago. I wrote the whole scene in my notebook that day. It was just flowing out of my head. It's a pilot for an action series based in ancient Rome. The theme would deal a little with fighting against oppression and things along that nature. You get the sense of that at least in the cold open, so go ahead check it out. Let me know what you think.
Also, a cold open is that first few minutes of a TV show before the title sequence. It can either start the story, or just be for a quick joke to start things off. Think of The Office. That show has really funny cold opens. Alright, enjoy.
