OUTLIER
STUDIO KANE'S FIRST PRODUCTION

OUTLIER is an upcoming Fantasy/Adventure series set in a world where swords and magic clash in a pseudo-modern society. Our story explores the pain we bring upon our loved ones when we are unable to find healing in ourselves. Blind pursuits and self-fulfilling prophecies... as the phrase goes:

"hurt people only hurt people."

So how do we address this?

And what does it take for us to realize we must break the cycle?

With a span of 3 seasons worth of scripts, and an expansive lore-intensive world... Studio Kane's first production, OUTLIER, is shaping up to be an iconic series for future fans to cherish; leaving the audience to digest heavy themes involving: 

  • Accepting things that are out of our control 

  • Blind pursuits and self-fulfilling prophecies

  • Unhealthy pledges of devotion

  • Self-discovery and the value of self-worth

  • Overcoming trauma & breaking the cycle

  • Healing from abandonment & learning to love/trust again

SEASON 1 SYNOPSIS:

When misfortune befalls the Elven kingdom of Cassius, their disgraced Prince, Lucian Lacer, must race to stop a misguided, reality-warping Divine from erasing everyone's existence. During his effort to prevent the realm's last living god from following through on his blind pursuit to achieve emotional healing by any means necessary, Lucian is forced to face his own broken behavior and address the unhealthy relationships he has with others along the way.

Journey alongside the Prince of Cassius as he soon discovers how easy it is to harm the people around him when unresolved trauma is left to fester; quickly realizing he is not so different than the god he is ultimately pitted against.
