Simon Stålenhag is a Swedish artist who does digital paintings that place mechanical future-tech in dreamscapes of the Swedish countryside.

But is it enough to base an entire television show around?

Amazon thinks so:

Inspired by the wondrous paintings of Simon Stålenhag, Tales from the Loop explores the mind-bending adventures of the people who live above the Loop, a machine built to unlock and explore the mysteries of the universe – making things previously relegated to science fiction, possible.

What is the show about though?

  • Who or what is The Heart of Darkness?
  • Where is The Heart Of Darkness’s Hidden Place?
  • What is The Heart Of Darkness’s Ongoing Concern?
  • How will the protagonists work through Triangular Relationships to defeat the Heart Of Darkness?

You know, basic Screenwriting 101 stuff?

Oh, none of you amateur writers ever heard those concepts before, huh?

That’s why you’re still amateurs and I’m the professional.

I guess you will have to wait until Tales From The Loop drops on Amazon this April 3rd to find out what’s actually going on here besides pretty pictures.
