Synopsis/Details: 

“Penny Gallagher? In apartment 207? Pretty. Hard-working. Honest. Lovable, really. But what a sh?t-magnet!”

Twenty-three year-old Penny loses another job, through no fault of her own, lands on welfare, faces eviction from her run-down apartment, is too far gone for bankruptcy to help much, and tries to fend off a cad of an ex-boyfriend who insists on getting reacquainted.

And that’s just for starters!

Because as she pens a manuscript that might turn her life around, (shades of J.K. Rowling!) an eclectic band of neighbors offer truckloads of advice - some wise, some not, and some just plain ridiculous.

Yes, it's a wonderful life if you have the perseverance of Penny!

If you’d like to catch this feel-good tale, which revels in diverse characters and could lead to many more stories for Penny, I look forward to sending it to you! (Also available as Pilot + Episode One)

The Writer: Steve Garry

I'm an incorporated businessperson, operating as Integer Entertainment, who's 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 or EP, wherein I'd be bringing my screenplay as well as package elements and perhaps some funding 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
