The Alchemist was conceived as an 8 part Medieval serial about an evil alchemist who sends a messenger to collect 6 potions (each a different color of the rainbow) which when combined, would give him the power of eternal life and strength, allowing him to rule the world. The hook was going to be that while the Alchemist is evil, his messenger is a good man, unaware of the evil behind his mission, just trying to do his job and find his true love. To add to the drama, a secret society sworn to protect and keep separate the elixers sends their own scout to intercept and stop the Alchemist’s messenger. During their confrontation, it is revealed that they know each other… and share a common love interest.
