Another great pilot for you this month! It’s called Big Wishes written by Kristen Bartlett (Full Frontal, SNL) Her pilot is called Big Wishes. It follows Karla, a guilty pushover, and her best friend Hyacinth, brash and full-of-life despite having Stage 3 breast cancer, as they form a Make-a-Wish Foundation for adults. Together, Karla and Hyacinth set out to grant the strange, occasionally selfish wishes of dying adults. It was sold as a spec to ABC Signature and set up at ABC Network for the 2020 development season. James Griffiths was attached to direct and his production banner Fee-Fi-Fo Films were attached to produce alongside Phoebe Robinson’s production company Tiny Reparations. It’s a hilarious pilot with a great cast! Enjoy!
