The Disloyal



Page Count: 



Age Rating:

Based On: 
My experiences in local politics, but all characters and locations are fictitious
Two brothers compete against each other in a competitive local election and lead an entire community toward a nasty proxy fight.

This is an idea sort-of based on true events I witnessed, but all the main characters and locations in this are fictional. I was thinking about doing this as a feature but then I figured that it would work much better in episodes. The idea here was to create a political drama based entirely within local politics. Not some thriller about Washington and the President, but a nasty local election.

I registered it as a TV pilot with Script Revolution but it can of course also be a web series pilot. This 41 page pilot is divided into two parts.

Can provide revisions, further episodes and series bible if interested.

Feedback also very, very welcome! Am open to script swaps too, just reach out.
