"FORTUNE" (NARRATIVE SERIES)

Jane Whitehurst, a Freshman at Georgetown, inherits $11 billion from an estranged grandfather, and decides to buy the US government.

What was the inspiration for your project?

The inspiration came from an article I read about Megan Ellison. I realized if I got that much money, I would probably get into politics rather than film.

How did the Filmshop community contribute to its development?

Filmshop has given me great feedback over the years, and also provided me with connections so that this could get read by various production companies that I wouldn't have had access to otherwise.

What would the New York Times say about your project?

Ross Douthat would call it "problematic."

What's next?

Hoping to eventually find a home for it with some development department.

Tell us something about yourself that most people don’t know.

I was almost expelled from high school on the third day of Freshman year.
