My name is Franklin R. Smith. I wish to submit my one-hour cable television pilot, “1600 Slauson”, to you for consideration.
Logline: After his client is murdered, a mental health psychologist for at-risk foster children and gang members battles his own psychological demons when he sets off on a dangerous quest to find an AWOL high profile client.
“1600 Slauson” placed in the following contests:
• 2016 Quarterfinalist Screencraft Pilot Competition
• 2015 Quarterfinalist Stage 32 TV Writer’s Contest
• 2015 Finalist Acclaim TV Scripts Competition
• 2013 2nd Rounder Austin Film Festival – top 10% of the 1000+ entries
A little about myself. Much of “1600 Slauson” is inspired by my own personal experience. For many years, I provided therapy to at-risk abused foster kids and gang members in South Central L.A. and Compton. And the therapy was done on street corners. At fast food joints. Juvenile Halls. Foster homes.
In light of the current societal climate, this project is especially timely.
Might you be willing to give it a read? Please let me know and I will forward you a copy.
