No Hustle & Flow, BUT (2) completed Urban features: One dark-ish, the other an action-dramedy. Both 'starring' the same May and December crime fighting duo. Links to synopses and first pages shown.

Priceless,"An old school cop and his female rookie partner take the law into their own hands to shut down a human trafficking operation serving the rich and powerful." [sign in to see URL]

Reduced Profile, "When media coverage of their vigilante activities threatens the re-election of a big city mayor, an old school cop and his female rookie partner are demoted to Petty Crime." [sign in to see URL]

Thanks for your consideration.

Re: Urban Drama Screenplays Wanted


Welcome, 502, for being our 993rd member. You are new so let me tell you that this is a forum for those looking for a means to gain representation without an agent. If you have an agent you probably aren't in need of this board, but it is a way to do your own research.

Some producers post their contact info and some producers prefer to remain anonymous and will respond to those who make good pitches.

This is just a board with "leads" and resources. Some will find it helpful and some wont't if they have other resources (like an agent if you are lucky).

We have been around since 1997 (different url's but always Screenwriter's Market). This is a helpful resource for "newbies".

Being newbies they make a lot of mistakes with their pitches, and even the seasoned writers sometimes don't even follow the instructions given in the producer's posts.

This is just one resource of many of trying to "get your work out there". We have had writers get options here, myself included.

Re: Urban Drama Screenplays Wanted


Subject: Fwd: THE WALL : AUDIO AND WRITTEN FIRST/LAST PAGES OF SCREENPLAY (ALSO FINAL DRAFT COPY AVAILABLE UPON REQUEST).
To whom it may concern:
 
As requested, Eyezronit has again tailored storylines to satisfy the desires of millions, flooding the most powerful social media outlets in the world today. We've done our homework, if these projects are produced, if we build them, either as a motion picture, or a 7 to 9 episode series, the kids will come.
 
We’ve especially targeted the audience of “NWA”, “All Eyes On Me”, “24”, Empire, Power, Orange is the new black” Please consider the “unique perspective” our story line takes. Much more commercially appealing than the recently released “Detroit” which takes place in 1960’s,( as opposed to ‘Stand Your Ground, which takes place in 2018, post Tamir, Laquan, Trayvon, Philando Castile). This action packed court room drama, which centers on possibly the most important civil rights issues of our life time, is a can’t miss hit.
 
We feel "THE WALL" could do even greater numbers due to the Black, White, Hispanic, Democrat, Republican, liberal, and conservative multicultural society we live in today.
 
Though we’re publishing the stories on Amazon to protect our copyrights We've sent you written and audio portions of “The Wall” and “Stand your ground”, and can have them sent to you in final draft script form in seven days upon request.
 
 Being that timing is everything, we encourage you, or someone on your team considers both stories and contacts us. Together, we can summon a great team of producers, and talented director to makes “The Wall” and “Stand your ground”. Projects, we truly feel, a sea of our multicultural society today will support at the theater, cable or stream on line.
All eyez are on it, let’s shock the world!
Thank you very much,

Hi, I have an urban drama script with some horror elements. It's called "Guillotine". It entails a vigilante in a Black neighborhood.

ps: "Hustle n Flow" was a shitty movie...

Log line
For the first, time in his life a police Lt. Faces "world of Absolute Evil"
This menacing story revolves around a cast of characters who exude depravity, sadism, Intriguing and hatred.
Synopsis
Set in :Westchester County, New York State, this menacing story revolves around a cast of characters who exude depravity, sadism,Intriguing and hatred. And, to make matters worse, the unwitting victims of this adult egotism are innocent children whose only wrongdoing is that they are there.
Lieutenant Michael Holmes,a detective specializing in unsolved crimes,is investigating the case of missing child... seven year-old Isaac Menis!after a while the police found his corpse…he was murdered!!!
The investigation is complex and increasing pressure is put on the detectives to find suspects. The first candidate is identified : Joshua Solomon-the mysterious leader of a religious cult whose relationship with children raises cause for concern. However, Lt. Holmes’ deputy, Wally, is not convinced that Solomon is guilty, at least not of the Isaac case.
As the investigation unravels we learn of the utter disfunctionality of Isaac’s family - his divorced mother and father and their respective new partners. But of all these rather unpleasant figures, it is his father Abraham who surpasses them all in the bitter and twisted stakes. It would be hard to imagine a character as full of resentment, anger and misogyny as this bit-part actor and model.
Another character in this hate-fuelled bunch who could have reason to want Isaac’s disappearance to remain permanent is the partner of Isaac’s mother, Gideon, a gynecologist, who sees the child as an interfering obstacle to his efforts to control and manipulates Isaac's mother?
Although we are told that this is a ‘Delving into the Darkness’, paradoxically there are some clues that allow us to understand (but not necessarily like) even the most distasteful characters in this book: Abraham was severely abused by his mother as a child, and Joshua, despite his abnormal behavior, seems to be a genuinely caring although person. Nevertheless, an ominous air pervades this book, re-enforced by sinister misinterpretations of the Old Testament and Nietzsche. No one is beyond suspicion.
Eventually a trial is held and Solomon finds himself in the dock. The trial is complex, but despite his best efforts, Solomon’s attorney’s defense is demolished at each turning. It is only at the end of the trial that the terrifying truth is exposed.
The story is told in a series of fast moving scenes that heighten the tension and carry the reader along to reach a cliff-hanging conclusion. World of Absolute Evil is a novel that is gripping in its vivid portrayal of a society peopled by repulsive, self-seeking and, ultimately, psychotic characters.

Re: Urban Drama Screenplays Wanted


Title: Order of The Court

Logline: A deadbeat dad is put into a situation he never expected to be in, so he can learn a hard lesson about fatherhood.

Genre: Comedy/Urban/Family

Two movies to compare the project to: Daddy Daycare and Cheaper By The Dozen

Setting: Present Day

Four single Mothers show up in Family Court and receive that shock of their lives. They all have children with the same man, Maxwell Gibson. Tammy Alexander an Afro-American female, Kia Ling an Asian female and Jamie Brooch a Caucasian female go on the attack and send Maxwell under a court room table. Maxwell’s Attorney wants the woman arrested but the Judge refuses to do so. She moves on with the Child Support cases by combining them into one case.

Even though DNA testing reveals Maxwell is the father of eight children, he refuses to take on the re-sponsibility of supporting them. His courtroom antics and outburst wins Maxwell a contempt charge, which lands him behind bars. When he is released, instead of Maxwell focusing on his children, he puts his energy into working on a new album and planning his wedding. Tammy, Kia, and Jamie bring all the children together to give them the news about their father.

With his Attorney at his side, Maxwell tries to use the Sperm Donor Defense to weasel his way out of Child Support obligations. The Judge throws out the attempt to use such a defense, which angers Maxwell’s Attorney. He in turn angers the Judge, which causes Maxwell and himself to end up behind bars. The Attorney freaks out like an animal in a cage for the first time, while Maxwell plays it cool. He agrees to and signs the Judge’s Order to get his Attorney and himself released from Jail.

Even though Maxwell signed the Judge’s Order, he continues on with his normal life of planning his wedding and keeping his crazy mother from killing his fiancée’s mother. Before Maxwell can make it to his own Bachelor Party, he finds himself behind bars once again, this time for Non-Payment of Child Support. But while in jail Maxwell realizes his fiancée’s deception and he plans to call off the wedding, while his mother is working on making sure the wedding never takes place anyway.

The Family Court Judge teams up with Maxwell’s Baby Mamas to teach him a lesson. Even though he has made the Child Support Payment, Maxwell is not free to leave the Court House without all eight children. As Tammy, Kia and Jamie chuckle in Maxwell face, his ego takes over and he plans to show them that he can take care of the children by himself. Pure arrogance leads him to believe that taking care of eight children will be an easy task.
 
What he thought would be a piece of cake turns into a horrible nightmare when the unruly children begin to destroy Maxwell’s home and wreak havoc on his life. He turns to his mother, friends and a Nanny Service for help, but Maxwell has to learn to find a balance in his personal and business life. A decision to make the right choices leads him to a new found love for family and Tammy.

The Ending: Just when Maxwell settles into a happy life a new round of DNA tests throws him for a loop, but he walks away a vindicated man.
