Synopsis: Danno, Rene, and Colette all know the truth: Reality is written, reality is planned. As reality TV show writers, their job is to pull out the drama, but when they are forced to re-cut the season finale to their “Real Housewives” rip-off, “The Ladies of Malibu,” not only do their jobs hang in the balance, but their own sanity, as they are forced to confront the real truth of how their choices have hurt one another.

Danny (Late 20’s-mid 30’s) – A stressed out editor who harbors secret guilt for abandoning his sister. He longs to re-cut not only the Finale, but his life and make himself the hero of the story.

Rene (late 20’s to mid 30’s) – An editor who is in the midst of a divorce and is at a turning point in her career. She tries to edit her life as well as she edits the “Housewives.”

Colette (late 20’s) – An overly ambitious young editor who is willing to do anything to move up in the world of reality TV.

Please prepare a 2-3 min. comedic monologue. You will also be asked to cold read from the script.
