I have to start working on the script I'm going to write next quarter. Here's the pitch I have so far. Thoughts?
True Love Waits is a comedy about a young couple, JOSHUA and NIKKI (22), who are heavily invested in the Abstinence Only movement. They "do things the right way" and wait until marriage to have sex - only to find their "happily ever after" turn into a (metaphorical) "dark and stormy night." Joshua soon realizes that they aren't able to consummate their relationship until he "gets his heart's lust under control" to Nikki's satisfaction, but in the end what they both need to find is the true love they both desire.

is this going to be a comedy? i don't think a drama about heart lust and abstinence could really do well mainstream. Maybe it could, i guess it depends how you do it (yes drew, that's what she said). this kinda reminds me of 40 year old virgin, just some of the aspects.

comedy all the way would be my bet.

The first four words of the pitch are: "True Love Waits is a comedy"

Sounds like an interesting premise, but I think that Paul hit on something - it doesn't sound much like a comedy, aside from the word, "comedy."
