ADT'L INFORMATION: What started out as one piece -- focusing on the hijinks of the staff at an upscale Beverly Hills furniture store -- has blossomed into three feature film ideas -- all centering around this one location.
Piece 2: It's just your average workday for the diverse team at a high-end furniture store in elite Beverly Hills... until the group is taken hostage in their own store. Among those being held with the employees? Colorful customers, the despised district manager & a soon-to-revealed secret shopper. This project is in the brainstorming & early writing stages.
Piece 3: Five separate short stories told from the perspective of a group of individuals who have never dealt with bad customer service or rude customers in this "Stepford" dimension which they inhabit. But when someone from "another place" interrupts their tranquil existence, everyone has a terrible tale to tell. This project is in the brainstorming & early writing stages.
