Opening sequence for 10-part dark and witty drama series – "TWIST" – with a primary target audience of 18–50 year old adults. A tale of deception, self-deception, duplicity + double standards, and morality clashing with immorality. ​​​​​​​

The backdrop is 1930s' New York. Protagonist – Pavel LeVap – is a trickster and illusionist, an American of French / Russian descent. Pavel is an aspiring performer but his illusionist skills attract the attention of the criminal underworld and, despite his best efforts, he is steadily drawn into their world. As he descends into serious crime he simultaneously ascends to fame in the theatres of 1930s' New York, drawing ever bigger audiences.​​​​​​​ True to its name, there are many plot twists - nothing is quite what it seems...
