Nowhere Fast

leave a comment »

This script was originally written for a class I was teaching. The class was called something like “Advanced Electronic Media” (it’s been a few years) and the students decided they wanted to produce a sitcom. It was originally titled “The Couch Potatoes” and they were supposed to write their own scripts. They only managed about one-and-a-half, so I ended up writing two of them and this is one. After I moved back to Oregon, I resurrected the script, rewrote it with the help of my friend Jason Czeskleba, renamed it “Nowhere Fast” and entered it in a reality show contest that was sponsored by the American Movie Classics channel. The show never happened and the script has been gathering dust on my hard drive. It’s meant to be a parody of the “college kids come up with a wild scheme – hilarity ensues” television genre and I think it works pretty well. There are definitely some jokes I will resurrect for future projects. Because of formatting issues, I’ve converted this piece to a PDF…
