New Story Based On A Netflix Hit, Can I Write It?

I was recently watching a hit on Netflix that I will keep to myself so no one steals my idea. (Better safe than sorry!) I was wondering if I would incorporate it into my story without getting copyrighted or etc.? It’ll be something like a Game Show (the Netflix Series) based on the Main Character’s POV.

My question are:

Is there a way for me to write this story without copyrights?

Can I get my story featured in one of the shelves? More so the competition shelves or something similar to that? Or just in general?

A story based on a show would be considered fanfiction, which is against the guidelines, so no. Copyright would be an issue because Episode makes money off of user stories and doesn’t own the rights to the show.
