VIEWS FROM A BROAD
Written by Stacey K. Black of Studio City, CA
A brash female talk jock on Detroit radio, realizes her on-air personality coincides with her responsibilities as a single mother. With dark humor throughout, this pilot episode highlights generational mistakes, the man who refuses to die, and the Detroit Tigers

Stacey K. Black is a member of the Los Angeles Poets and Writers Collective. Her work will be featured in the upcoming edition of "Onthebus", a collection of poems and prose.

Stacey currently resides in Southern California, where she makes her living in the film and television industry by tending to tresses. Stacey's most recent hair styling work can be seen in the F/X series, "Nip/Tuck," where she holds the position of Department Head Hair Stylist. Somehow, she finds time to write every day, scripts, short stories, and sometimes diatribes about the unfairness of the carpool lane.

Stacey hopes one day to be able to pull a little switch-a-roo, and start making a living by writing, then carving out time in her busy daily schedule to put in a couple hours of good hair styling.

THE TOWER - "GODS AND MONSTERS"
Written by Thomas Murray of Los Angeles, CA

The decimation of a magazine staff is thought due to natural causes, but the disappearance of their fact checker worries Sheriff Turner. She's his niece, and he fears that she may be the next target of a sinister assassin.

Adrift in the Midwest working at everything from cab driver to college teacher, Mr. Murray has been writing essays, plays and books for many years.

During college, he studied journalism and theater, landing leads in Marat/Sade and Don't Drink the Water -- his favorite role being the critic Moon in The Real Inspector Hound -- then decided there was no money in it and earned a BA in physics/mathematics in 1990.

Film has been a recurrent passion. As film and theater critic for his college paper, he wrote about a hundred movie synopses for film festivals in his home town of Louisville, KY.

A former private pilot (no license, no money), he recently took classes with The Groundlings, and acquired his yachting license (no boat).

Thomas received the following prizes as our second place winner:
*Consideration for representation by: Mike Wise, Literary Agent of Los Angeles based Shapiro-Lichtman, Inc., Liz Hanley, Literary Agent of Los Angeles based Bicoastal Talent Agency and Esther Luttrell, Head of Literary Department for the Jackson Artists Agency
