Hope all is well. My name is Gil Cuevas, and I've written an 86 page sci-fi/horror script called, "FULL SPECTRUM".
Logline: Doctors race to save a five-year-old before her synthetic genes transform her into a monster.
MARY rebuilds her life after the loss of her first child to an illness.
Mary hears about a process by which she can have a genetically perfect child and decides it will complete her life.
Four, years later, and Mary doesn't get along with her "super-kid", ABBY. During a fight, Abby falls down the stairs and is seriously injured.
Abby's doctors discover that the network necessary for the synthetic genes to communicate, and thus conduct repairs, is missing. They will attempt a risky system reboot in a race to reclaim control of Abby's genes.
... and then there's the squirming mass, rapidly growing inside of Abby.
And why is the vial of Abby's "network pills" - the one that just fell out of her Mary's purse - full and expired?
That's kind of it in a nutshell. Thanks again for your time. Please contact me if you're interested in reading it.

Synopsis of THE JURY MUST DIE:
Grace, an attractive woman in her low thirties, falls in love with Dennis, who returns her lost dog and refuses a reward. They date for a while. To Grace it seems like the perfect romance with the perfect man. She just couldn't be happier.
Not long into their relationship, strange things begin to happen. Wherever Grace and Dennis go out on a date, people turn up dead. That Dennis may have anything to do with this, is the farthest thing from Grace's mind. It's all just some strange coincidence, she believes.
As time goes on, these "coincidences" become more and more difficult to ignore. Grace decides to break into Dennis's apartment when he's not home to find out more about him. To her shock, she learns that Dennis has been lying all along about his background and there's really very little about him she knows.
Grace learns that Dennis' wife was murdered by a rapist who had been acquitted by a lenient jury. Subsequently, Dennis killed the rapist and spent half his life in prison, and he is now on a mission to track down and kill the jurors one by one.
The people who have been turning up dead were all part of that jury. The last remaining juror is now Grace's closest friend.
Grace realizes that her meeting Dennis was not an accident; it was all part of his diabolical plan.
In the end, Dennis turns his wrath on Grace for attempting to break up with him. The final scenes may be reminiscent of some of the fight scene between Michael Douglas and Glenn Close in FATAL ATTRACTION.

Indiana. Barred from the football team, longing for his girl in Indianapolis, and chafing under his disparaging father, the senior class newcomer strives to make new friends.
