Development Pitch

The viewer takes a front seat to witness the trauma when a former athlete, retired Cleveland Browns marketing director, and Lacrosse Coach is found lifeless after cardiac arrest and brain injury while vacationing in Michigan. This true inspirational story unfolds through twists and turns dealing with a series of ominous events and many months of uncertainty. Just like the COVID 19 pandemic, it includes tragic reality, separation from the comforts of daily life, struggle to find solutions and finally returning to a new normal. This chronological story includes actual social media posts detailing how Betsy, his wife and small business owner copes, rallies resources and cares for her mental state throughout the ordeal. It's also a story of how an athlete recovers and returns to coach the game he loves. It reveals many of the mysteries of brain injury and the brain's extraordinary ability to heal in its own time. This true love story includes the couple's earliest days of finding love and the many forms of connection, faith, gratitude and support that engaged in his recovery. Only 1% survive this kind of event. It is our hope that readers will believe their own miracles are possible too.
