Development Pitch

Nicki Ventura, like millions of American residents, is a child of an undocumented mother who came to the U.S. for a better life. But unlike those other millions, Nicki's mom cut a secret deal with the CIA to avoid deportation. She agreed to take part in genetic experiments that sought to create superhero soldiers. Nicki, merely an embryo during the otherwise failed experiments, was bestowed with the gift of hyperspeed -- the ability to travel faster than the speed of light. As an orphaned and aspiring young comedian in L.A., Nicki crosses paths with outspoken, panty-peddling, entrepreneur fan, Sally, who promptly uncovers her hidden past and hyperspeed. One-woman-motivation-machine Sally propels low-key Nicki into superheroine action with her relentless push toward Nicki's grand destiny. While Nicki recognizes the validity of Sally's exhortations to "be all she can be" and save the world, she struggles with insecurity, lack of confidence and a longstanding wish to pursue peace in her own way. With Sally's forceful and unwavering support, Nicki overcomes her fears and unleashes the power of her hyperspeed for the good of humanity ... until an unexpected evil with powers that match her own puts her in her place. Victoria Ventura, Nicki's sultry and, until now, unknown twin sister built an underground empire using her hyperspeed in the pursuit of darkness. Who'll win the final battle between comically good and comically evil in an abandoned warehouse in downtown L.A.?
