Hey there. I recently uploaded my super hero dramatic comedy script, SUPER TED, onto the Black List website. If you’re a member of the site, I welcome you to download and read it.
I hesitatingly describe the script as a super hero story, as it’s more of a coming-of-age, human interest tale about what it means to be a hero.
After losing his super powers, SUPER TED, the former celebrated town hero, must trade the acclaim, muscular physique and blue and gold tights for a more traditional life. Initially lost, as everything that made him who he used to be seems gone, he tries and humorously fails other noble career paths before landing a gig as a driver at an elderly home. It’s not until he realizes that he needs to dig deeper past superhuman strength and physical powers that he’s able to make an impact on those around him and ultimately combat the mightier villain that threatens his city. A dramatic comedy that dives into the question of what it means to be a real “hero,” SUPER TED deals with the discovery of how to live every day with the values of a superhero, but with the means of a regular person.
So far the script has received two positive “7” scores, with each evaluation featuring encouraging comments from readers:
“This script is incredibly creative, charming, and heartwarming. The structure is fantastic, building up the literal (super)hero’s arc with even pacing and high stakes.”
