PROJECT WORM – CONCEPT DESCRIPTION

Griffin Sharp, 44, is a game developer from the early times. In the past fortunate and rich, he has gone from one end to another, finding himself now poor and divorced. Once caught by the feds and sentenced to five years in prison for a serious Internet fraud, he’s now earning a living at a fast food restaurant and a taxi driver.

Sharp is still on parole and prohibited from using the Internet for one year. Parole officials on his back, following his actions daily, he’s aching to use the Net. Sometimes the temptation is too much: he sneaks onto computers wherever he gets a chance.

Even though Sharp’s on parole and the officials have laid him restrictions, the police still needs his knowledge. They occasionally contact him asking for help in solving cyber crime cases. Helping cops isn’t what Sharp enjoys, but it gives him a chance to keep up his magic.

While solving the cases, Sharp suddenly catches onto something else: an old hacker friend that got him in trouble in the first place. Now his friend, Benjamin Dallas, aka Nacros X, has re-emerged to the Internet, to IRC. There’s only one problem: he wasn’t supposed to be around anymore. He was supposed to be dead.

Even the hacker community ends up divided: some convinced it to be just a stolen identity, some believing it to be the real Nacros X. For Sharp, it’s just one more reason to get online.

Now we are in grave need for synopsises based on this story as basis of the episodes for Project WORM. Any ideas? If, please share ‘em at Wreckamovie, in this task.
