Each episode of The First 15 brings screenwriting members of Trigger Street Labs to a live workshop of their screenplay’s first 15 pages.
Today’s screenplay is “Famous Frank” by Richard Fordyce. (click the link to read before the show)
After a career teaching Latin and Greek to schoolchildren, Frank is widowed and sliding happily into retirement as a grumpy old codger. But his personal life is turned topsy-turvy when his brother dies in a traffic accident. Frank suddenly becomes the owner of a family business he was never interested in: a company which manufactures toothpaste. His late arrival into the arena of business and commerce leads him into misunderstandings, celebrity, street brawling, ghosts from the past… and romance.
