my name is Aaron Hawkins and I'm a POC writer, and I believe I have something that'll interest all of you! Something "out the box" indeed......Its called The Ronnie Show and it's a teleplay (tv script) of 24 episodes all written by me, and the each have their own interesting storyline. The show is a comedy but at the same time tackles important, deep issues (including a 2 part finale about gun violence)
SYNOPSIS: Ronnie is a black gay man living in the Lincolnwood neighborhood of Chicago, he is a widower after his partner, Leon, died from cancer 7 years ago....he is a talk show host of his Wendy Williams style show "The Ronnie Show" and his friends, Manny, Tammy, an intern Leslie are all his co-workers too! Ronnie also is friends with his next door neighbor Neisha, and once a week they get together an play Uno at his house which sometimes turns into an impromptu round table discussion of politics. Ronnie's life is going great when his troubled, hood-talking uber heterosexual younger brother Alex needs some guidance so he stays with Ronnie an they clash constantly! Ronnie is the nucleus of the show but every character has a storyline in this raw, edgy comedy, heres a sample of what I written, this scene is from th 5th episode...
