Writer Statement

Logline – In this spoof of NBC’s “The Blacklist,” Rayshawn Remmington, a struggling comedian who thinks he’s blacklisted from the industry, must go on an adventure through the seedy New York comedy scene in this espionage thriller to find out why nobody wants to sign him and hopefully clear whatever’s on his name, but gets himself knee-deep in actual trouble in the process.

Synopsis – This Blacklist parody is all about struggling artists making a mountain out of a molehill. Rayshawn, our main protagonist finds out there are bad rumors about something mysterious he said or did flying around the comedy scene after dropping by Funny Bizness for a meeting with their newest agent, Elizabeth. He decides that the biggest priority for his career is to find out what the rumor is, who put it out and how many people know to clear his name and restore his career. The tone will be similar to the Blacklist in intensity, spy lingo and espionage vibes with much much lower stakes. Supporting characters include: Paul Montesi, Rayshawn’s best friend and co-producer whose even older and more bitter than him, Kandace Peters, a newer young comic with more heat than confidence, and Ryan Malin the venue/general manager of the Village Playhouse, where Rayshawn and Paul have a show, who is also running drugs out of one of the old dressing rooms.

TV Show: MURDER MATCH, by Koszima Mair

Based on my dating blog, a recently divorced mother of two is thrust into the ridiculous and often scary world of online dating. Each 1 hour episode is an experience from a date using sarcastic humour. The twist is a type of groundhog day scenario in the way the date ends. As she sees red flags, the dates end in her murder related to those flags. She comes back to the date as it is happening and this happens again with the next red flag. The end of each episode is how it truly did end.
