Accuracy of Book Profile

Yes, the book profile accurately reflects the book.

Draw of Story

The story begins with Shady, who is a teacher but also a stripper. She really enjoys both jobs which is refreshing. The common thread that the woman are teachers and raised Christian juxtapose the choices they've made against their upbringing.

Possible Drawbacks

The final two stories are not as developed as the first one. The last one, following Norma, is not a complete story at all. Norma is threatened by her husband to expose her secret and she runs. What happens next? It would be interesting to see that story expanded.

Use of Special Effects


Primary Hook of Story

The hook is that three teachers deal with keeping and revealing secrets in their lives. I would watch this story for the secret past life of Shady. Teacher by day, stripper by night is a fun concept especially as she tries to keep it a secret.

Fanbase Potential

This could have a decent sized fanbase. Stories of women empowering themselves and taking action is always a welcome story. The stories need to be expanded more to allow for character development.

Awards Potential

This does not have awards potential. It barely dives into the story and lacks character development. The stories are mostly predictable and lack uniqueness. There are good bases to be developed further but as is, it is lacking.

Envisioned Budget

What’s New About the Story

The story is original because it's 3 separate stories with a common thread: they are teachers. Shady's story is interesting because she is a teacher who takes up stripping to help pay bills. The main plot for each story is very predictable. Shady is trying to hide her stripper lifestyle, Shannon doesn't confront her cheating husband because of her Christian background and Norma runs from her abusive ex husband's threats. There is nothing mind blowing or revolutionary about any of the women's stories.

Lead Characters

The lead characters are normal woman, teachers, who do out of the ordinary things under specific circumstances. They empower themselves and take control of their lives which would be inspiring to an audience.

Uniqueness of Story

This is an average story similar to made for TV movies. They are slightly different but have similar plots as the next story. They are entertaining and have a specific audience.

Analyst Recommendation



While the story has many positive points, it has room for improvement (see possible paths below). If you can't change the story at this point, my suggestion is using your notes as a guide to highlight the best aspects of it when taking the next steps, either putting a pitch page together, a treatment, or a presentation.

Tips for Improvement

To change this to a consider, the stories need to be completed and more time spent on character development. The storylines could converge somehow and further the story. Shady's story is the most interesting but ends abruptly with the death of her parents and her moving back home. It would be more satisfying to see more of her journey stripping while teaching. Each story is still conventional when there is space to be bold.
