2015 Heck No
Screenplay by Jody Weiner

THE PITCH: A contemporary comedy, Heck No is the coming-of-age tale of handsome Joe Kallender, an octogenarian forced to reconnect with his two estranged children when his conniving and controlling wife Ethel suddenly dies, mid-scheme, leaving Joe clueless about surviving on his own. Along Joe's hilarious journey of self-discovery, renewed relationships and new-found love in the unlikeliest places, the collection of memorable characters rings true, cleverly exploring mortality and heart-felt desires while managing to touch something recognizable in each one of us.

Raise Your Other Right Hand -- novel in progress -- a contemporary take on The Thin Man about the lives and loves of Archie and Lora Zimmerman, the coolest movers and shakers on Russian Hill
