THE STORY

When Bob Fitzsimmons, a high-flying corporate executive, is downsized, he ends up with a job worse than Dilbert’s at half his old salary. Then he has an idea—if he can’t earn the American dream, maybe he can steal it. And the designs for his new company’s top-secret killer product are a hot commodity.

ABOUT THE PROJECT

A dark, twisted little comedy, White Collared was my first feature-length screenplay. It won the Best Screenplay award from the Santa Barbara film festival and was optioned by the Sundance-winning producers of Two Family House. At one time, it had Dan Aykroyd and Jamie Lee Curtis attached to star, and Chris Koch, a frequent “Scrubs” director was to helm it, but financing never materialized and it has, alas, gone unproduced. Still, not bad for my first time to the rodeo.

FUTURE PLANS

People who were involved with this project still call me up from time-to-time to say how the script is more relevant than ever. So who knows? Anyone want to produce a feature film? It’s still a thumping good read. If you’re interested, drop me an email and I’ll send you a copy.
