Log line—When a cynical, failed novelist suffers a disabling stroke and fears he has lost everything, his only hope of regaining any type of meaningful life comes from his quirky, yet courageous, fellow patients at a rehab hospital for the brain-damaged.
Think MASH upside down with the patients the primary characters and the staff as secondary.
Power Also has created a half-hour comedy series. “The adventures of Eddie & Derwood” Eddie Hoar and Derwood Doller are two bumbling, low-life beach hustlers based on characters from his crime Series.
Power is now looking for a Manager, Agent or producer to help with any or all these projects.
