Development Pitch

The story could be a series in that the first part of the script would be Johnny struggling to make it out of the prison. Once Johnny gets out the characters would branch out into other avenues. Vinny Le Pugh who is an excellent artist would be able to open up an art gallery or go into another avenue. David Madejas who is the musician would branch out into films and movies and composing. At first there would be a struggle and then the character would blossom. Even Johnny, who started out as a truck driver is able to express himself through writing.
