Development Pitch

In a time of discredited politicians, showing the human side of a former American president with all of his weaknesses, mediocrity, and paranoia, can be a refreshing addition to the psychological/political thriller genre. Fast-moving and at the same time providing food for thought and unanswered questions into some dark aspects of government. It has unpredictable plotting and unusual situations that will most beguile any veteran of thriller loving.
