Development Pitch

Wesley Aames is a likable, charismatic, complex character that will resonate with audiences. Like most people, he has made mistakes, lost love, and attempted a "fresh start." He doesn't always succeed but his open heart, his sense of humor, and his optimistic approach to life creates a new type of hero. One that can be an example to everyone. This series represents real people, using real language, in real world situations that will resonate with most people. There are no car chases, kilts, or superheroes. There are real people living heroically while facing their fears, loving their families, and striving to make it in an unfriendly world. There is generally not a "happily ever after." Just like real life. People will see themselves, their loved ones, their neighbors, and their world reflected in these pages.
