Working Title: Comography

Genre: Modern Day Fantasy Comedy

Plot Synopsis:

Meet Ed.

Ed’s a 40 year old car salesman who’s still basking in the former glory of what was – a former high school football jock who’s now sporting an award-winning potbelly, an aging trophy girlfriend in high school who’s now his pot-smoking wife who he’s sick and tired of, a not so fancy car he sells and everyone else on his block drives but he secretly loathes, and two twin teenage boys who seem destined to follow in his footsteps against his best advice.

Not everything is picture perfect in Ed’s white picket fence world, though.

You see, Ed has a problem. A rather big problem you could say.

An extreme addiction to pornography that’s making his mid life crisis and lust for a ‘pretty young thing’ absolutely unbearable….

That is until the fateful day an insane man claiming he’s the Devil took Ed for a test drive, speeding recklessly through the streets of downtown Phoenix at 90 miles per hour with Ed screaming out the window.

The last thing Ed remembered thinking was: “That’s unusual”, shortly before hitting a dairy cow which happened to be wearing a sombrero, big green sunglasses, a pink tutu, and knee-high striped red socks with flip flops complete with a cowbell standing in the middle of an intersection in downtown Phoenix.

It was, after all, summertime.

“Highly appropriate attire” were the cow’s last thoughts.

Two years later,  Ed miraculously recovers from the coma, fully, only to discover he really has problems now.

No one is wearing any clothes, anywhere, yet seems to think nothing of it.

And for a man with a sex addiction that never saw recovery, his marriage, his self image, and his perspectives are about to be put to the test as he struggles to contain his ‘excitement’.

Whether he wants to. Or not.

4) Midpoint or Turning Point

Ed finds himself tested every step of the way, unable to ‘keep ‘r down’ as his wife and kids question this man who returned from the coma.

5) Low Point

6) The Final Challenge

Ed goes to ‘sex addiction’ anonymous classes, where he comes to term with his addiction and finds the pretty young things he’d secretly been tossing them off for.
