Development Pitch

The Outmate follows one woman's journey through an unsettling world of violence, lust, addiction and dark impulses which drive her to extreme acts to demonstrate her commitment. Chrissie Laursen didn't survive her battle with alcoholism and a doomed marriage just to be with a pretty boy model. Years of experience running her own erotic photography studio taught her that a handsome ego makes for a weak partner. Better to find her own way. Still, in the quiet night she wonders, will love ever touch her? Her answer is revealed in the viewing of a single photograph of Nick Jessup. Nothing would ever be the same. Nick's chiseled physique cut a striking figure against the simple brick backdrop of the photo, but it is his eyes that change all her well-honed plans. They are an intense, glacial azure that speak to her. After one glorious date at a Ft. Lauderdale bistro, Chrissie is overcome with desire for this man, and eager for more time together. It is not meant to be. Nick's savage past finally catches up with him and he is arrested before they can culminate their desire for each other. Eager for the excitement he brings out in her, she spends the next several years as the romantic obsession of an inmate; The Outmate. In time their mutual frustration takes its toll. Faced with a thirty-five year sentence, she stages and executes a daring and bloody prison break. As she is forced to commit more and more atrocious crimes to keep them both out of prison, she begins to enjoy it.
