  “Ortyn & The Aliens” is a weekly half-hour, episodic TV series  
  designed to educate and entertain children of all ages.  

While the first season, as outlined below, deals mainly with science and astronomy, subsequent programming can be tailored to include any variety of school subjects… such as math, history, geography, etc. (Imagine Ortyn & The Aliens traveling back in time to visit with people like George Washington, Alexander the Great, Galileo or other major historical figures.)

The basic premise of this concept is that these four cute little ETs have a sincere desire to inspire and motivate kids to higher learning and achievement… that being educated is the “cool” thing to do.

Motivating kids to study and learn is always easier if teachers make the learning process fun.  And what’s more fun than being entertained by an awesome band playing excellent music?

So that’s the vehicle Ortyn & The Aliens have chosen to use… incredibly entertaining and instructive songs presented in each episode as a music video which can later be marketed independently for further profit.

Ortyn & The Aliens realize that the production costs of their show would require a somewhat greater investment than a typical “reality show”, for example. But, unlike most other formats, their series would be timeless… having a virtually endless life in re-runs.

It would also generate many ancillary streams of revenue such as books, motion pictures, radio & TV airplay royalties, I-Tunes & Amazon, etc. download royalties, ad revenues from YouTube and other web plays, sales of physical CDs & DVDs… toys, games, clothing, musical instruments, Halloween costumes and other licensed products… not to mention promotional items distributed by entities such as fast-food chains. The enormous profit potential of these and other additional revenue streams would exponentially recoup the initial production cost investment.

  Ortyn, Weldyn, Zeldyn and Myles come from the planet Nikton…  
  which is located in the Milky Way... about 50 light-years from Earth.  

12 year-old Virginia "Ginny" Stanley lives in Franklin, Kentucky. She’s the daughter of Sheriff Mark Stanley and the granddaughter of retired lunar astronaut, Admiral Biff Bradford.

For her school science fair project, Ginny constructs a radio transmitter with which she hopes to contact extraterrestrials. Not only doesn’t she win any prizes, but some of her schoolmates make fun of her belief that there's other intelligent life in the universe.

Later that night, when she’s alone in her room, she turns on her radio and sends out a message ("If Somewhere Someone's Out There") seeking contact with any ETs who might be listening.

Ortyn and his pals, Weldyn, Zeldyn and Myles, just happen to be cruising through our solar system and pick up her signal. They decide to investigate, hover high above Franklin and beam Ginny aboard. They take an immediate liking to her and she to them. She extends to them an invitation to visit planet Earth... and they eagerly accept... unaware that not every Earthling is as friendly as Ginny.

Life on Earth isn’t too easy for our alien friends… at least not at first. Eventually, however, with the help of Ginny & her Grandpa, all turns out well and Ortyn & The Aliens are welcomed to live here among us.

They decide to become teachers… to inspire the kids of Earth to enjoy learning by making it lots of fun. As every kid likes music, the Aliens incorporate original songs into their teaching method.
