Yasmine, a former profiler, investigates the death of a well-respected reporter. She will stop at nothing to get to the truth, but not before a U.S. Senator, a CIA agent, and a hacker, all figures from her past, get in her way.
* Previously, the title “Beltway Connections” was used when the story balanced two protagonists.
* Originally, the series went by the title “The Making of an Idealist” and focused mostly on college-age versions of the characters with the U.S. Senator as protagonist. A second episode was written under the original concept.

Half-hour single-camera sitcom pilot written on spec; available upon request
A college freshman falls head over heels over a girl he barely knows, making a life-changing decision in the process. Meanwhile, a son of a congressman learns to love what his father’s connections can do for him.
* This script is included as the opening chapter of The Young Mike Adams, a collection of short stories released in 2013
* This script was adapted from parts of “The Making of an Idealist” that did not survive the rewrite into “Beltway Connections.” The sitcom version was later adapted into a short film script entitled “Pick One!” in September 2013. Like “Connections,” I have looked into adapting the plot into a feature-length script.
