produced screenwriter's Christmas script


Dear Producer,
I’m a professional screenwriter with 4 feature film writing credits. “Walking With the Enemy” (based on a true story and starring Academy Award Winning Best Actor Ben Kingsley) is the latest.
Now I’m looking for the right home for my latest Christmas-themed script, “The House Santa Forgot.” After reading the logline and synopsis, please let me know if you wish to review the script. My bio and credits follow.
Thanks very much,
Richard A. Lasser

“The House Santa Forgot”
Logline:
People stop believing in Santa, when he accidentally misses a sick little boy’s house.
Synopsis:
It’s Christmas Eve, and the pressure’s really on CHRIS K. RINGLE. No, not SANTA. He’s got this, like he’s gotten every other Christmas for the past like, ever. But his son, Chris, who’s trying to make it on his own at a top branding firm, keeps losing clients. And his type A+ boss, BRONSON ARMBRUSTER will fire him if he can't land a big client before Christmas. And then the impossible happens.
Santa forgets a house.
Not just any house. It’s the humble, East L.A. home of very ill little RAY BANDO, who lives with single dad RYAN. Ryan was a gainfully-employed school teacher, even named Teacher of the Year, until his son took ill. Now Ryan stays home to take care of Ray, and plays “bill roulette”, skipping some creditors so he can afford the meds. Somehow, they’ve managed a modest Christmas display in their burned out front yard, which Ray innocently hopes will garner them the Mayor’s Trophy for the Best Christmas Lights Ever.
Under normal circumstances, Santa should have still been able to find the Bando house, even though it was pitch-dark when the DWP shut off the juice for non-payment at midnight on Christmas Eve. But at the exact moment he flew over, a laser flash from Bronson Armbruster’s monumental Christmas Lights Show across town – which Bronson is sure will garner the Mayor’s Trophy -- temporarily blinded him. But no one realizes this except Bronson, who keeps the info on the down low.
The next day, KATE SKUPE, enterprising TV reporter is all over the story, broadcasting from the Bando’s house. The story goes viral and it isn’t long before the trolls threaten to undo all the good the elves have done for hundreds of years.

Chris agonizes over what’s happening to his father, who feels like a failure. But what can Santa's son do? Plenty, says his boss Bronson, who sees the mushrooming public relations disaster as an opportunity to take advantage and make a bundle. And he has seen through Chris's secret identity. If Chris will take one of Bronson's top clients to the North Pole to sell Santa on the idea of getting a capital infusion to upgrade his failing equipment, in exchange for naming rights to the Santa brand, Bronson will give Chris his job back. If Chris refuses, he'll turn him into ICE (not frozen water; but Immigration and Customs Enforcement) and he'll be deported. So Chris takes billionaire poultry and egg producer PETER BUNNIFER, to meet the parents -- MR. and MRS. SANTA CLAUS with the prospect that he’ll own the best-recognized brand in the [sign in to see URL] almost sell Santa on the idea. But at the last minute, Santa backs out. The Bunnifers return home empty-handed. And Bronson fires Chris.
When Bronson’s wife EILEEN and his bratty kids BARON AND BRITNEY see little Ray on Kate’s broadcast, their hearts go out to him, and against their patriarch’s will, they head to East L.A. to share their Christmas gifts. Bronson’s got to stop them, so he offers Chris his job back, with a raise, if he intercepts his family. Chris refuses, so Bronson goes there himself. But when he sees his family gathered happily with Ray, he, too, has a change of heart, and reveals that his lightshow blinded Santa, making Ray’s the house Santa forgot.
One Year Later.
At the North Pole, a robust, healthy Ray helps Chris, Santa and Mrs. Claus prepare for Christmas. It seems that his illness has no effect on Ray when he’s at the North Pole. In a few years, he might even raise a beard.

Re: Finished Christmas & Family Fun Scripts Wanted


Christmas Without Dad

An ambitious, young man goes back to the town he had left after his father passes away and learns his father was much more than he ever gave him credit for.

Cole had always resented his father. He felt that he had no ambition and did enough just to get by. Cole always wanted to get out of the small town, especially after his mother had died. He wanted more. He wanted his success. It wasn't until he received a phone call from one of his brothers he decided to go back to the small town and pay his respects. He was a stranger in the small town that knew him. He went to the funeral and learned that his father was much more to the community that he knew. He also learned his father worked a lot to put him through private school so Cole could reach his ambitions.
Cole thought he would walk around town and eventually stop in a new pediatric ward. There, he met Sara. Cole felt guilty about the way he had acted but Sara assured him everything would be okay. She would be well enough to following day to move to the city from the pediatric ward that Cole's father worked to get built. Cole would go back to his house and get his two brothers to take a half-constructed gazebo out of the backyard and build it in the middle of town. It was the least he could do to honor the man who meant so much to so many. He would drive back to the city and his office the next day and find Gary, a local homeless man in front of his office door. The man, Gary, Cole had threatened to call the police on if he didn't relocate, was slumped in front of the door. Cole called for help and stayed with Gary until paramedics arrived. Cole would go across the street to the coffee shop to buy soup from the girl he liked and take it to Gary. And of course, Mimi, the girl across the street would join them for Christmas eve at the hospital.

Santa on the Jury

Logline: A man with a familiar appearance uses his life experiences to touch the lives of others at Christmastime as he performs his civic duty.

Synopsis: Written with Hallmark in mind; light-hearted holiday fare.

Elle Hooper, a beleaguered coffee shop worker, is a mess, and she can't tell her boss, Jacob, why. Edison Fayer, a gruff jury manager, is facing a life crisis with his wife, Ruth, and he also has difficulty sharing his pain with his co-workers. Kitty Driscoll is wrongly accused of theft, and the only alibi is her client's dog as she faces a zealous prosecutor. Christopher Snowe, a patient, wise gentleman, enters the lives of all three as he participates in jury duty with his fellow citizens. Three vignettes are woven together, and Christopher, the embodiment of Santa Claus, with whom he bears a striking resemblance, eases their pain and leaves them wondering who he is and what is his vocation.

Elle's dog is dying, and she and her co-worker, Jacob, are brought closer together, him sharing with her his own similar experience. Christopher, the director of a pet rescue shelter, encourages Jacob to give Elle a dog for Christmas. However, she feels it is too soon, and so rejects the dog, and Jacob.

Edison's wife has had a lumpectomy and they are waiting for the results, fearing the return of the breast cancer she had twenty years earlier. Christopher, who we learn lost both his wife and daughter to breast cancer, recognizes Edison's suffering and consoles him, encouraging him to share the crisis with his staff so that they can support him.

Kitty Driscoll, who is trying to turn her life around working as a dog-walker, has little alibi for the crime of which she is accused. However, Christopher, finally seated and serving on a jury, recognizes that the dog she walked on the day of the theft was wearing a GPS device that can prove that she and the dog were far away from the department store. He becomes an expert witness, deflating the faulty presentation of the prosecutor.

At the end of the story, Elle accepts the dog (and shares a kiss with Jacob), Edison declares to his staff that his wife has received a Christmas miracle in that her cancer has not returned, and the prosecutor drops the case against Kitty in light of the testimony provided by Christopher and Ginger, the dog Kitty walked on the day of the crime. All volunteer at Christopher's pet shelter, where he, dressed as Santa, holds a pet adoption event just days before Christmas.
