Early in Genesis's development, the series was stuck in "development hell" for a period of time. After the original Prototype was cancelled, ZeVikingSif tried to sell the rights. However, no one but Monitor071 wanted the franchise - Sif sold the rights to Monitor071, but only to see it fail. Months later, Sif contacted Monitor071 and decided to go back to the project.
The series underent several revisions, even reusing ideas from the original Prototype. The series also had an alternative title, "Prototype: Genesys" in reference to the upcoming Terminator film. eventually Monitor071 was fired from the project. Cartoon44 was brought on as a replacement, resulting in more early ideas. Following the course of several months, the series appeared to be going nowhere with the ideas deemed inadequate.
Around April–May, Cartoon44 and ZeVikingSif had a conversation discussing the future of the franchise, and the options that the series could take. Sif brought up the idea of bringing Sci100 on board, but Cartoon44 disagreed. The next day after the meeting, Sif sought out Sci100, requesting him to "save" the franchise. Prototype: Genesis was discussed and fully planned as a nine-episode miniseries. After the details were fully planned, Sif approached and offered The Awesome Jack the chance to write Genesis, which he agreed to. Production started June 6, 2015 and is ongoing
Hell is now your home... welcome home. You are gifted, we all are. The words "man" and "woman" mean nothing to you now. What you can do is above and beyond what came before you... but what did come before you? The answer is nothing. Nothing ever happened on any given day or time. You were born the moment you woke up here. Your mind is a blank slate controlling a god's body. You know nothing... but you can do everything. Have fun and stay in the dome.
