Development Pitch

#AbusedNoMore takes sexual assault and abuse to a level of understanding of why it may have happened to start...not justifying the actions, but understanding the emotional triggers that caused it. It is a story of three best friends sharing their experiences and trying to help others get beyond their struggles in coping. Their bond, courage and unity are tested when what was to be a safe environment becomes a place of fear and horror. After several members are murdered, two of these friends are put to an even bigger test...survival. Truths are told as both emotional and physical struggles ensue bringing an end to one's story. In the end humanity is what survives...even if having to fight for it means losing your own. #AbusedNoMore brings to light abuse from an abuser's point of view without glorifying it and at the same time putting a spotlight on the victims and their struggles. Through truths that are shared from both the abuser and the victims we see a different story...one that needs to be heard. This story is very relevant to today, what we are experiencing and especially the #MeToo movement. It would make a great movie or limited series because it shows the emotional side of the abuser...why he abuses...how he justifies it in his mind. At the same time we see the victims and how their trust led to their own horror. There is a balance of good and evil, but evil in its truth. It is shocking, thrilling and very emotional...a combination viewers want in a murder mystery.

About The Author

I was born and raised in New York City's Hell's Kitchen. I was the youngest of four boys and we were poor. Television was our only source of entertainment and I would watch whatever show was on and all the old films. I became so immersed in the stories and from that and being extremely shy I decided I wanted to write stories. This is when it all began.
