ESQ – TV PILOT

Logline:  BOARDWALK EMPIRE MEETS HELL ON WHEELS

Summary:  ESQ is a sensitive present day story of the inner workings of a high-ended and exclusive Gentlemen’s Club based in NYC NY.   We follow the lives of five of the main characters.  GLENN the up and coming young and handsome club manager, VICTOR the owner of the Club, the HOUSE MOTHER who is in charge of all the dancers activities, NAJA the main dancer and a heart-throb from Yemen and PHIL Head of Security and Victor’s Sergeant Of Arms. 

The story begins when, Naja walks into the club and dances in a Burca, which sets off a wave of sacrilegious reactions and hypocrisy across the world, which brings way to much attention to a club as private as ESQ.  Very intense.

Writers:        Frank M Calo & Rick Martinsen          
Producers:    FMC PRODUCTIONS, LLC    
Director:       Frank M. Calo
Genre:          Drama
Est. Running Time:  60 Min per episode.

CAST: DAYTON CALLIE (DEADWOOD, SONS OF ANARCHARY as VICTOR).   Official offers will be sent for the other leading roles.

Target Demographic:  ESQ will have a very strong, core audience among the almost 50 million people who view HBO our intended target for this dramatic piece.  Additionally, we anticipate a great foreign return from South America, Mexico, Spain and the Caribbean.  However, because this is a heart felt TV show with a universally engaging theme, we are confident, ESQ reach will go far beyond the HBO’s market.

The soundtrack and fashion department and any more ancillary rights will provide additional revenue for investors while strengthening the domestic and international draw of the film.
