COMEDY SCRIPT SAMPLE: “CHAFA”

A sappy but lovable Colombian twenty-something, Juan Carlos, finds himself in a sudden whirl of grief when his mom passes away, his girlfriend leaves him, and his Greenwich Village bakery fails. In a dark comedy about grief and sexual/racial reconciliation in 2017, watch Juan Carlos figure out life when it gives him the middle finger.

This script is an American adaptation for a British comedy on Amazon Prime, “Fleabag” by Phoebe Waller-Bridge. I’m working under TV writer D.B. Gilles at the New York University Tisch School of the Arts in developing this script into a pilot.

The following are the first four pages. Enjoy.
