Three women screenwriters, frustrated with the sexism and misogyny in Hollywood, hatch a scheme to break through in this World Premiere comedy.
Three female screenwriters, frustrated with the sexism and glass ceilings they encounter in Hollywood, decide to collaborate on a commercially surefire macho action epic screenplay with a studly hero. Now, they have a script. But, they’re women. How will they get a studio to buy it? They hire a young fellow to be their front. He will purport to be the author of their screenplay. Sure enough, their front/impostor becomes the toast of Hollywood, commanding millions of dollars in asking price for future scripts.
Where does all this leave the original three women screenwriters?
Playwright Marilyn Anderson has put Hollywood show business in her crosshairs as she takes aim from a distinctly female point of view. There’s laughs aplenty in her incisive look. She has written for film (How to Beat a Bully) and television (Making Mr. Right, Sherman Oaks, Friday the 13th: the Series, Carol and Company, more). She is the author of popular books (How to Live Like a Millionaire When You’re a Million Short Never Kiss a Frog: A Girl’s Guide to Creatures from the Dating Swamp). She received the Luminas Award from Women in Film.
