Today’s Pitch Workshop submission comes from Preston in Chicago, who’s working on a screenplay and wants us to– these are his words, not mine, I swear!– “rip [his] work apart” so he can “fix it right” and “become the next Diablo Cody.”
All right, Preston– you asked for it.
Folks… here’s Preston’s synopsis for his psychological action-thriller, Thy Brother’s Keeper…
Title: Thy Brother’s Keeper
Genre: Psychological Action Thriller
Log-line: Ronald Davis’s jealousy and envy causes him to sabotage his twin brother Rashawn’s college basketball scholarship chances by planting steroids in his locker. This ends up sending Rashawn to prison, while Ronald goes on to lead a successful corporate career.
