Synopsis/Details: 

Teenagers. It doesn't matter what era: Arguing over which song on the hit parade is the dreamiest, surviving their parents, or finding a job that doesn't suck big-time.

Oh, and returning the B-52 bomber you took for a test spin, stopping World War III, and saving the planet from atomic zombie chickens flooding out of cobalt-contaminated Las Vegas.

It's just another weekend for four ungraceful teens hired to set up domestic survival simulations, aka atomic dummies, during 1950s civil defense atom bomb tests.

The characters resemble "The Three Stooges" (except with four), without most of the eye-poking violence (though personally I love that stuff), set to a soundtrack from "American Graffiti". The leads are the two girls, who are only "slightly" less silly than their two boyfriends. In fact, if it weren't a different era, you might also say these characters would get along just fine with "Napoleon Dynamite".

If you'd like to view this story, I look forward to sending it to you! (Also available as Pilot + Episode One)

I am an incorporated businessperson, and I operate as Integer Entertainment. I'm actively pursuing attachments for my smaller scale projects before I work my way up. While the status of my scripts here may read 'For Sale', I'm just as likely to be seeking producers/talent/investors to collaborate with as a co-producer, wherein I'd be bringing my screenplay as well as package elements and maybe even some money to the table. In addition, with a decade of pitching behind me and being read hundreds of times, I may have connections to enhance the resources that you have available. Don't hesitate to approach me with this in mind. Flexibility, creativity and unconventional collaborations are... Go to bio
