Development Pitch

Because this is a true story and there are not the required structural elements for a 3-act film script, I envision this as a limited series, of six 4-act episodes following a high-functioning autistic man's involvement with criminal parties. However; required film elements could be fabricated for that medium. Another option is to focus solely on the Goldman Family history, whose corruption started 80 years ago. Years ago, while living through the story - before I even thought to write it down - I had a dream Brad Pitt was playing me in my life story.
