Post New Screenplay: "The Incredible Life of Joey Coletta"
The Incredible Life of Joey Coletta is a delightful tale for all ages, innovatively written in the form of a screenplay.

A young California boy is plucked from obscurity to become the star of a new family situation comedy. But can his real-life family survive? And can a nine-year-old survive in the fast-paced world of Hollywood?

The Incredible Life of Joey Coletta is a funny, heartwarming tribute to the beloved domestic sitcoms of the 1950s and '60s. A story about family, faith and creativity, it explores growing up in mid-century America and what it was like to be a child star during the golden age of television.

Amazon review:

"A warm, engaging piece and also extremely funny. It takes place in 1957 and makes obvious allusions to the family comedies of the 1950s such as "Father Knows Best" and, above all, "Leave it to Beaver" and is presented in an emotionally touching manner. Cleverly constructed with a number of laugh-out-loud lines."

About the author:

Post Re: New Screenplay: "The Incredible Life of Joey Coletta"
If you are a fan of the classic sitcoms and family movies of the 1950s and 60s, you will love "The Incredible Life of Joey Coletta."

A story about a fictional child actor in 1957 Hollywood that resonates strongly with the life stories of real child actors from that era. Against the vivid backdrop of Hollywood production and politics, we see a touching coming-of-age story about a young boy discovering his true voice as the star of a TV show.

Amazon review of The Incredible Life of Joey Coletta:

"This is a story that takes me back to a simpler time. Joey is makes us long for the days of “black and white” TV shows where families had constructive dialogue and genuine humor. This story is thoughtful because the characters mirror real human beings, with substance, heart, and even deep, yet, forgiving flaws. It is sensitive and has a flow that moves with harmony and a spirit that is reminiscent of an era that makes us smile and endears us to the players!"

An Amazon review:

"This was an entertaining read that reminds one of times in the 50's and some of the family shows of the 50's with dramatic twists. Joey's parents are separated. He gets a role in a show that his father arranges. However, the producers like Joey's genuine interpretations. There is conflict in that his mother is worried about this.

It is a wonderful read."

Post Re: New Screenplay: "The Incredible Life of Joey Coletta"
An Amazon review:

THE INCREDIBLE LIFE OF JOEY COLETTA is that rarest of things: a witty yet utterly un-sarcastic homage to the "squeaky clean" 1950’s family sitcom exemplified by FATHER KNOWS BEST and LEAVE IT TO BEAVER. The story of a young, Italian-American boy plucked from his “typical” California neighborhood and school to become the Hollywood star of a sitcom will put you in mind of those two programs and even of THE ANDY GRIFFITH SHOW, and yet it is anything but clichéd. Nor is it smugly post-modern. THE INCREDIBLE LIFE OF JOEY COLETTA is just the type of script Hollywood needs. It reads well on the page and is highly recommended.
