THE PUBLIC DEFENDER (feature film or cable series pilot)
You’ve been searching for the one script you couldn’t turn down. Is this it? Take a look at the logline and see…
“The Public Defender”
A raw, in-your-face drama of an idealistic, ex-Navy-SEAL lawyer who must over-come his post-war depression and a bitter divorce for a second-chance at a job with a Public Defender’s Office in a backward Florida county; where a power-mad judge, who believes murder is just another form of out-of-court settlement, has created a fool-proof criminal enterprise to make him and his corrupt Bar Association rich.
Script works as sequel-rich feature or as pilot for cable/TV.
