Imagine a football star who seemingly has it all. He forgoes fame and fortune and joins the workforce to raise his daughter. After a decade, the decision appears to be the wrong one and our star is stuck in the rut of daily life. One unfortunate situation after another rises until a prophecy is delivered and everything changes. His wildest dreams come true as well as some nightmares in this wild ride of life. It all becomes worth it when he gives up what he thought he needed most to acquire what his heart desires.

Legend is every modern-day man who feels like he is stuck in the “real” world. Sometimes we think the only way to happiness is through large sums of money. Over the years one realizes that happiness can be missed at the moment if we don’t pay attention to the things that matter. This story resonates with me because it was the dream I thought would deliver me from my harsh reality. After learning to love me, I realized my story was already perfect and shouldn’t be changed. Everything always works itself out in the end. Fortunate circumstances will take the audience through a series of events that show viewers that choosing Love or Money may not be the easiest path, but it is the most beneficial for your soul.

The pilot episode of Fortunate Circumstances plunges audiences into the world of the #1 recruit in the nation (Legend Anderson). He is facing the decision of his lifetime (or so he thought) of choosing a college. On the night of the championship game, his girlfriend tells him that she is pregnant. Legend forgoes college to be the father he lost when he was a young boy. This decision places Legend and other characters’ lives into a spiral that affects him for the next decade. The story picks up ten years into the future, where Legend who had so much promise, now works as a warehouse worker. What went wrong? Depends on perspective. Through his friends, family, and a little bad/good luck, Legend is provided hope through a prophecy his grandmother told him would come true. Unfortunately for him, he hasn’t realized the twist and turns his life is about to take. The legend begins his journey with the trip of a lifetime while things at homework themselves out.

Just read the script. I do not believe my bio has anything to do with the art. If you like it then you like it. I feel no need to introduce aspects of my own life to sell a script that is already ordained to be made. What is to be will be. Nomaste. Go to bio
