All Accolades & Coverage: 

Bulletproof Script Coverage: Originality is one of the strongest aspects of Zero F’s, and the pages do a great job imbuing the story and world with unique details that make this script feel unlike most others in the niche revenge comedy genre. The strongest piece of originality, however, comes with the characters that are being focused on, and showing four friends who are “experienced” is unique while simultaneously adding empathy and relatability.

This contributes to a strong tone for the pages, a balance of comedy and pathos that hooks with readers on a deeper level and makes the comedy more engaging. The comedy is effective, particularly because it is more grounded and comes from character, which does not undermine the stakes at all.
