Mike’s script Fight or Play Basketball – a family-friendly script about a kid who has a tough decision to make and the adults who influence his path, has just reached the quarterfinal round of CineStory Foundation’s script contest for original drama TV/Digital category.
This achievement is good news for this script and Mike’s work in general.
“To be recognized by the fine professionals at CineStory is a great honor”, says Mike. “Fight or Play Basketball is a story about choices, passion and the love of family – and strangers that grow to become family. Adversity for a single mom and the maturity of her son are themes that will resonate. The backdrops of and contrasts between the boxing and basketball worlds magnify the choices of the young man and also the two men who serve as makeshift father figures. There is a strong lead female character for an actress in her forties and a multi-cultural character base. There are roles for actors of ages from teens to seniors. Let’s get this script to people that can generate production at the highest possible level. Any serious inquires are welcome to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org”.
