DAWDY PUGG: KILLER REPORTER (FORMERLY 'BURY THE LEAD')
By Joleene DesRosiers

GENRE: Drama
LOGLINE:

A thrill-seeking TV reporter turned tenacious vigilante finds herself slaying the bad guys at night, only to turn around and cover the deaths with her own twist, live on TV the next day. 

SYNOPSIS:

DAWDY PUGG (30) is on her way to Miami Beach for the best reporting job ever. But thanks to a few ignorant thugs who think she knows a woman named Frieda Friday, Dawdy ends up kidnapped, drugged, and framed for Frieda Friday’s murder.

It’s not such a bad place to be, considering she caught one of the thugs threatening her on tape, and that tape can earn her another Emmy for “on-the-front-lines” reporting. But when she accidently kills one of her kidnappers, everything goes south. Dawdy ends up in jail accused of not just one murder, but two.

Now she’s in trouble.

Behind bars, Dawdy meets her murderous mentor, BEATRICE BICE (65). Beatrice teaches Dawdy the ways of a hands-off murderess. Without ever pulling the trigger or slashing a single throat, Beatrice shares with Dawdy dozens of ways to kill the bad guys by staging the killings as accidents.

“The advantage you have is that camera,” Beatrice tells Dawdy. “You can tell the world aaaanything you want, and they'll believe you.”

Armed with this knowledge, Dawdy makes her way back to the newsroom and onto the streets of Doverling, taking out the menaces of the world, one by one.
