About this submission

Tough luck and bad choices have left Maggie with only one option – to get out from under it all, she’s got to get in over her head.

This scene could be the opening or closing scene of a pilot of a one-hour drama about Maggie Steitz, a late 20-something struggling to pay the bills and to stay clean. Maggie has an “in” with some very powerful players, but to turn her life around, she’s going to have to turn on them, which means there are some darker days ahead.
