Development Pitch

11/2019 Tyrone McAllister, 28, is a prisoner serving a life sentence in Sing Sing with no chance of parole. Tyrone tries every day to bring about his own death, fighting and resisting advances from inmates who want to make him their sex partner. Due to the constant fights, he spends more time in the infirmary than in his cell. The warden finds Tyrone’s behavior disruptive and is determined to find a way to regain control of the situation. Dr. Penny Hollings, the Sing Sing psychiatrist, has written the governor and received permission to start a service dog program at Sing Sing, much to the disgust of the warden. The warden drafts Tyrone as the first dog trainer, hoping he will fail and the program with him. This would eliminate outside interference and return the prison to the warden’s sole control, allowing him to keep his dark secret. Dr. Hollings meets Tyrone in the infirmary, describes her program and discusses his participation. He does not believe the warden wants to give him a chance and he is right: Dr. Hollings explains that the warden believes Tyrone will fail and cause the program to be shut down. Tyrone agrees to join the program just to scam the doctor out of a few perks. Upon beginning the training, Tyrone is assigned to Bessie, a pit bull rescue. He must train Bessie with the help of two professional trainers and Big Carl, his cellmate. Bessie and Tyrone become close as Tyrone sees Bessie just as he sees himself, a street dog who has b
