Saving The Day Pilot (In Progress)

This is a teaser that I wrote for an original project called Saving the Day. Saving the day is the story of a superhero past his prime, and his former criminal best friend that tries to bring him back to his glory years.

I wanted this project to be a love letter to my childhood in Brooklyn, and a commentary on the gentrification happening in the town, making it unrecognizable. It was important to me that it be more of a grounded tale about a superhero, but focusing more on the human side of his life, and the general struggles of a former convicted criminal coming home for the first time.
