other scripts in development:

Baby's In Black
A romantic black comedy about a nerd who pursues and wins the heart of a cheerleader as he comforts and supports her after the death of her boyfriend, the star of the football team.

A sleazy voyeuristic couple who arrange illicit trysts with married, well heeled businessmen and videotape them for blackmail are drawn into a web of deceit and self destruction when they obtain a snuff film involving a powerful politician.

The Experiment
A comedy about a young graduate student dons a helmet-mounted camera to record every moment of his life and stream it live on the Internet, alienating his friends, family, his girlfriend and his employer.

Circa 1960, a naive aspiring bodybuilder on muscle beach is approached by a fanatical Italian film director searching for the star of his next low-budget sword and sandal epic. The making of the movie turns out to be a bigger adventure as "Hercules in Hades" turns into a trip through a personal hell of failed relationships and artistic insecurity for a director that can't tell the difference between fantasy and reality, an alcoholic actor on the skids, and a California surfer/bodybuilder that is suddenly thrust into the role of a director's id. (Think "8 1/2" meets "Hercules in the Haunted World".)
