I'm wondering if anyone else has experienced this "writer's worst nightmare" and might have advice: A while back I spent more than two years researching, writing, and then trying to sell a screenplay about Franklin Roosevelt's struggle with polio called WARM SPRINGS. It came within 25 scripts of being a Nicholl quarterfinalist, second-rounded in Austin, and was a Slamdance semifinalist and a finalist for the Chesterfield Writer's Film Project at Paramount. And then . . . HBO filmed the same story, and even used my title! It wasn't a steal. In fact, the scripts are very different. SO . . . after it had spent years in a drawer, I recently dusted off my version, retitled it AFTER THE STORM, and sent it back out into the world. And today I got this valentine from the Black List: "Few writers or films have accurately tackled the plague and ravages of polio in such a frank and honest way. While there have been many films and TV programs that have explored Roosevelt's struggle with the disease, none have gone into quite so much detail or done such an excellent job showing how the politician was empowered by his time at the rehabilitation facility. In this piece FDR's experiences at Warm Springs absolutely feel as though they are the catalyst for his political run, a great origins story for such a storied political figure." What do you think my chances are of selling my version of this story?
