GENRE: Comedy, Drama
LOGLINE: A former TV idol and Hollywood bad-boy, takes a job as a nanny to the little girl next door and must apply lessons learned in order to save his relationship with his own daughter.


Tyler Dean is a washed up actor, stubbornly auditioning for the type of roles he was famous for two decades ago. To make matters worse, he is also battling his ex to keep his visitation with his daughter.

Desperate for money, Tyler accepts a job filling in for an injured friend as the nanny to the young girl she was taking care of. Suddenly Tyler must make room in his Alpha Romero for a car seat. Surprisingly, he turns out to be an excellent caregiver, taking the opportunity to do all the things that he missed out on with his own daughter. This does not go unnoticed by his attractive employer.

But complications ensue when his ex abruptly moves out-of-state. Now Tyler must hatch a clever plan to revive his career, in order to see his daughter. By embracing the changes in his life, his career is soon flourishing and he discovers his most important role is being a father.

"The Manny" is in the vein of "Mrs. Doubtfire" meets "About a Boy.” It was born out of my own trials and tribulations as a non-custodial father and will certainly relate to a wide audience of both men and women. The screenplay has received a seven rating on the Black List, was selected as a Semi-Finalist in the 2016 Table Read My Screenplay Contest (Park City) and recently selected as a quarter finalist for the 2016 BlueCat Screenplay Competition.

Great concept. Three questions; 1) What's the budget? 2) Do you have any one in mind for the cast? 3) Is it location specific? Please respond to me at:
