Logline: 
An action-packed, modern western that tells the origin story of two classic outlaws: Butch Cassidy and The Sundance Kid.
Synopsis/Details: 

Hole-in-the-Wall is the origin story of the infamous outlaw duo Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. We'll discover just how these two bandits met, how they formed their notorious “Hole-in-the-Wall” gang and watch as they get into – and out of – all sorts of hairy situations. We'll tag along as our two antiheroes take those first important steps toward their everlasting legend and marvel at the sheer cajones it took to get there. Along the way, we will explore and discover the legacy of the American West and how it parallels to today's society.

But more than that, our series is about how virtuous men can do dishonorable things and vice-versa. How often times “White Hats” go gray in the pursuit of “Black Hats” and once you cross that Rubicon, it's often impossible to come back. Hole-in-the-Wall is also about average people coming up against massive machines – be they political, corporate or judicial – and overcoming them by any means necessary. It's about the fight to stay stand out and thrive in a world where those in control want you under their thumb. In a very real way, our series about the American spirit itself – self made, self reliant survivors fighting against a tyranny they do not support...only our guys also rob banks.

Ultimately, Hole-in-the-Wall is about honest men doing crooked work in a world that wants to see them disappear.

The Writer: Kris Simonian

In the past seven years, I have worked with an Emmy award winning writer. In those seven years, I helped to develop both TV series and feature-length films for Showtime, HBO, and various independent producers. Independently, I currently have two projects in development - "1992" is a dramatic feature about the 1992 Los Angeles riots. "Ringside" is a dramatic series about an aging and disrespected boxing promoter who gets an unlikely second shot at greatness. In 2012 I won a silver Telly award for Relentless Development, and in 2011 I won "Best writing" and "Best Dramedy" categories at the LA WebFest for my web series Ghouls. Check out my web page at...
