Development Pitch

This is NOT a lurid story of prostitutes, violence, sex trafficking, substance abuse, or living on the edge. It’s a humorous, mature story about an upstanding teacher (Ruben) who has an acquaintance (Luanne) who happens to manage an escort agency specializing in affordable professional girlfriends—no high class hookers. Luanne loves to call Ruben in the middle of the night to banter about business and her philosophies. Ruben fancies himself a writer as he composes profiles enhancing an odd assortment of women. The story’s themes involve Ruben’s conventional girlfriends compared to professional girlfriends, keeping employees safe, and the realities of sex beyond the MeToo generation.
