LANCER'S DOWN

LANCER'S DOWN
By Monty C. Floyd

GENRE: Historical, Drama
LOGLINE:

Sinister forces collide in Dallas as we witness moment-by-moment Secret Service agents go from keeping President Kennedy alive to barely surviving the day themselves.

SYNOPSIS:

Type: Mid-budget Feature

Genre: Historical/Drama

Tone: Lancer is the ideal concoction of a docudrama and character-driven piece.

Synopsis: Prior to Dallas, Secret Service agent Roy Kellerman uncovers two eerily similar assassination plots in Chicago and Tampa: a patsy and shooters with high-powered rifles.

Lancer sweeps us behind the scenes with Agent Kellerman (limo's front seat) that fateful day in November, highlighting not only the chaos and complex decisions, but the power-grab of Vice President Johnson's detail seconds after the first shot rings out. Roy struggles to make it through day, blaming himself for losing the president, and asking why Dallas wasn't canceled.
