About 12 days ago, I began preproduction on a web series based in my hometown, Baltimore, MD. Below is a synopsis of the series that serves as a prelude to a feature film I’m currently developing. Visit the website: bemorecareful.wordpress.com
About the Series
Jamal has a five-month-old son for whom he provides. He has a family who loves him dearly, and a drug crew who looks to him for leadership.
Jamal is conflicted.
He wants to take care of his son, as any father would, yet his choice of career, though it may seem easy and lucrative, goes against his spiritual beliefs. He has to either quit the drug game, barely making ends meet, or continue on the path of money, power, and respect at the price of his soul.
When his crew is robbed, and Jamal’s position with his boss is threatened, Jamal makes the choice to ambush his robbers and get his boss’ money back. During the ambush, Jamal kills a man for the first time, and sets off a series of events that leave many people dead.
The violence hits home for Jamal, and when the smoke clears he accepts that he must get out of the drug game.
But, will he?
