About this submission
I'm a produced feature, TV drama writer, NYC playwright, NHMC Television Writing Fellow, and from 2017-2018 was part of the new trend of ad hoc Writer's Rooms - run by TV Ep Roger Wolfson. I have a Script Feedback company: http://FadeouttoGreenlight.com - but, am looking for feedback on my works-in-progress. I have some notable TV talent that have sent letters of intent to attach to this series, based on a Series pitch to talent mentioned - and am about to send them this pilot episode. Talent: Berto Colon ( Orange is the New Black), Rene Rosado (The Conors/Major Crimes) Luis Antonio Ramos ( Power), Adrian Nunez ( Yucatan).
Log Line: A self-destructive, lone wolf ex-basketball player (who quickly sabotaged his own NBA playing career)- now on fire to do the impossible - create an NBA franchise in the drowning, Puerto Rican ghetto he grew up in - is suddenly forced to shepherd 3 teens to manhood.
Imagine...the hope of Friday Night Lights - but the gritty societal commentary of The Wire, American Crime, or The Deuce.
