Development Pitch

Deadly D.C. Affair is a story about a scandal taking place in the White House between the First Lady, Adriana Peterson and her lover, secret service agent Liam Davis. President Peterson is betrayed when the woman who vowed to love him and the man sworn to protect him have an affair. Audiences love scandals, and no movie to my knowledge with this story line has ever been written or made into a film. This is why I think it would work as a film and have wide appeal. The story is much more than a romance novel and the characters extremely complex. The story also contains elements of suspense, drama and a psychological thriller. The audience will see many dimensions of certain characters. The First Lady, Adrianna Peterson, has to try to strike a balance in her life between her husband and her two children while carrying on a clandestine love affair. The president, who is saddened after discovering the affair still is about to forgive an move on, and Agent Davis being the most perplexing of all, as he transforms from a lover to the First Lady and protector to the president into an evil person after the romance is discovered and his subsequent termination.
