“The Productive Lie”

CAST BREAKDOWN

Synopsis

The Productive Lie is a story about Chris Parks, a mechanic in his 30’s who runs

a garage, by day and hosts an internet radio show (Powertalk-FM), by night.

Chris has grand ideas of taking his internet radio show to the FM dial in

syndication. He has been very successful gaining listeners all over the world,

and his following has just toppled over 1 million. There’s just one problem…the

show is breaking him financially. He has an ex-wife who continually begs for

child support money, although they share joint custody. His friends/co-hosts

are all helpful in small ways, but they lack the same entrepreneurial drive that

Chris has. After swearing off dating and marriage for years, Chris has

unexpectedly met Morgan, the love of his life. As his love for her grows, he

begins to make plans…but she has plans of her own and is carrying around a

big LIE. Her lies and devious nature could cost Chris, the show…and his life.
