Music Centric Teen Dramedy
Tweens/Teens, 18-24, Families
He had everything...
but what he needed most.
When self-absorbed pop star Jake Madsen’s record label forces him to collaborate with a viral social media influencer and her dying brother in small town Oklahoma, he learns there’s a lot more to life than fast cars, hot girls, and all the money, fame, and power you could ever dream of.
A STAR IS BORN for teens.
Pop music artist Jake Madsen (23) rose to fame with the help of older brother and manager, Tyler (26). Adoring fans, parties, women, limitless funds and fast cars are his world. His life seems perfect. Except that…his out of control behavior and the bad press it attracts has him in trouble with his record label. But his music execs have a plan to repair Jake’s image: A collab with Lizzy (23) and Luke (12), a brother and sister musical duo who attracted the spotlight when their video to raise money for young Luke’s cancer treatments went viral.
Jake isn’t happy about being forced to hunker down at Lizzy and Luke’s humble home in the boonies of Oklahoma. He and Lizzy clash from the get-go. He and Luke on the other hand, hit it off instantly when Jake pulls out his Oculus video game console, much to Lizzy’s dismay. But Jake’s brother, Tyler, has eyes for spitfire Lizzy and love slowly brews. After a few bumps in the road, they all find common ground and collaborate on a killer song.
Meanwhile, gossip TV show host Mari Perez is hunting Jake down. She and Jake used to date until…he cheated on her with Tyler’s girlfriend, Camy. Now, with the lure of a ratings boost and a taste for sweet revenge, she blackmails Jake with a threat to send the entire press corps to Lizzy and Luke’s house to turn their world upside down if he doesn’t give her an exclusive interview.
Adding to the mayhem, Luke is rushed to the hospital where they discover his cancer has returned with a vengeance. And when Lizzy sees Mari’s interview full of lies about Jake, she sends the boys packing, Tyler quits as Jake’s manager, the label drops him, and it seems as if Jake’s life is over.
But when Luke’s condition takes a turn for the worse, they must come together and be there…for him, and for each other.
The You and I song around which the story of this film is based, was written by Dallas Hart and a few of his musician friends during the COVID lockdown in 2020 as an appeal to a world full of isolated people to join together (even if only in song) to make the world a better place.
It has always been our heart for the song to generate funds for charitable causes. And this continues to be our focus.
You and I has the potential to rise up as a modern day We Are The World phenomenon, which literally raised millions for charity. And with the proper PR/Marketing, this song could well accomplish the same.
We would wish for profits from the song to be shared with charitable organization(s) with whom we would partner. And we believe that, in turn, the right partnership(s) would bring its/their own level of following and promotion for the film AND the music.
