STICKS
By Joleene DesRosiers

GENRE: Comedy
LOGLINE:

A secrets and scandals writer stuck in the sticks of a redneck town turns to a celebrity drug dealer for career advice in order to keep her own secrets from being exposed.

SYNOPSIS:

RICKY RICHMOND (45), a seemingly prim and proper wife and mother, yearns to escape the redneck town she’s trapped in to chase big time dreams as a novelist. If she had her way, she would co-write a book and go on tour with the famous mystery writer, Peter Searle, who intentionally hides his face on his books and at signings as part of his “mysterious” persona. But in order to follow her passion and escape the sticks, she’s got to keep a shameful secret under wraps; a secret that is about to cost her $60 thousand dollars.

Enter celebrity drug dealer, MAC FISHER (60). Many in the community are fascinated with the scholarly drug ringleader because he’s been able to elude authorities for so long. But when District Attorney CLARK RICHMOND (52) gets to the root of his drug ring and busts it up, he puts Mac Fisher behind bars.

Did we mention that Clark is Ricky’s husband? Yeah. It’s a problem.

Surrounded by toothless townies, smelly fishermen, and hunters who wear entirely too much camouflage, Ricky’s only solace is her three like-minded friends who also want more out of their lives and to feel relevant. When those friends give in to death, drama, and fear, Ricky’s hunger for success grows even more, triggering her to ditch her squeaky-clean persona and choose that of a drug running diva instead.

(Currently in pre-production. Slated to be shot June 5 - June 9, 2019)

Very Specific Southern Feel. You must have "Kinfolk" Down South. Great Idea. I'd like to read the screenplay. I'm looking forward to the release. I'll gladly pay $15 bucks to see it.
