Respecting our Elders: Where’s that gotten us?

Inheritance is a cheeky and stylish comedy adventure for teens, set in a world that is crumbling at the edges. Berberis, an outcast farmgirl, and Celan, the headstrong scion of a forgotten dynasty, chase a stupid idea into the heart of corruption.

Their adventure will force them to re-assess their birthrights, and accept that the old world must die, and it’s their job to make that happen.

Cave interior, grey tones. Bushes and trees with dark pink blossoms.

                Celan (a young blonde noble) tied upside down to a large stake.

Luminous youth in a rusty world

The first season of Inheritance comprises 8x30 minute episodes covering the meeting and subsequent even worse luck of our two heroes: Celan, an obsessive chancer with dollar signs in his eyes, and Berberis, who reckons politics doesn’t affect her. Spoiler: the season climax will disavow her of that misapprehension.

Meanwhile, the world dries and cracks around them, robbed of its very life force by a king who can’t let go of the past, and his chief-of-staff, a robot-shaped disappointment of a woman whose idealism has gradually been colonised by murderous pragmatism and black depression. Oh yeah; also it’s a comedy.

Inheritance will delight audiences 10-adult. For a full pitch bible including more detail about the characters and story of Inheritance, reach out to us at hello@inheritancecartoon.com
