I’ve been working on a story idea for television and I am looking for a capable screenwriter who can take my idea and bring it to life.

Here is my synopsis.   Walter Write is lapsed-Catholic who has been cooking meth taking advantage of his knowledge in chemistry.   His conscience has been tamed and the amount of damage his product brings to the world does not concern him.  He is only in it for the money and the prestige of being a high quality meth cook.  He is  diagnosed with Stage IIIA lung cancer and as he becomes aware of his mortality he comes to confront the choices he has made and the man he becomes.  In his journey towards truth he comes in contact with a young Catholic seminarian Jessie Redman who begins to evangelize him.   His conversion starts to bring him full circle and starts to wonder if he is being called to the priesthood as his love of the God and the Eucharist grows in leaps and bounds.

The name of the series:

* For those unfamiliar with the show “Breaking Bad”, here is the Wikipedia entry.

  1. Yes, Bromine (Br) is element 35 and Barium (Ba) is element 56… but you have Br twice in the title – was that intended? Or perhaps a clue…

    That plot-idea could be very interesting to flesh out (no pun intended)… especially given the – er- chemistry of the topic.

  2. I like it! It is a lot harder to redeem than to degenerate, but done right it would definitely inspire or at least hold attention.
    Naturally it stands a cat’s chance in hell of getting made…

  3. Ah, thanks… I apologise for proofing in public. (strikes breast knowing his own typos run in the quintillions!)

    It would make an intense novel, too.

  4. No aliens, no submarines, no vampires, so like the show on which it’s based, I probably won’t watch this one either.

  5. [...] Not the direction I envisioned things in my Breaking Bad parody. [...]

    Hey Jeff, before I start, I’ve noticed that we’ve got another victor here but remember Panda Rosa, “I’M” the “ONE” who’s been Breaking Bad news about sinner vic and his skitso friends if ya know what “I” mean?:)

    I’ll close by saying that me, myself and i can’t wait to see this movie cause depending on who the writer is, “IT” could go so many WAYs but because “I’M” a catholic and not a protestants “I” would like to see a good ending for all concerned if ya get my drift but I doubt that will happen!? :(

    I hear ya! Hey Victor, anything is possible in the movies!

    Only in the movies ya say! :)

    Go Figure!

    Peace
