Screenplay Reading: Would You Be Mine?

August 5, 2012

Created by Brandon Pankey
Written by Davian Peat


Would You Be Mine? is a half-hour comedy-drama about Terrance Wayne’s journey of love, career and friendship. It all starts with the young, successful marketing executive standing at the altar awaiting his beautiful bride. However, we don’t see this bride and the story of who Terrance chooses as his wife unfolds over a long flashback that encompasses the entire series. Terrance’s best friends during this time are Sharif, a talented but immature music producer; and Lisa, a stunning Philadelphia socialite attending law school. In the beginning; Terrance is an intern at the powerful Blake Montgomery marketing firm in Philadelphia and is in a budding relationship with Renee Covington, a centered, altruistic elementary school teacher. Terrance is smart and charming and quickly earns the respect of Barry (the firm’s President), Jason White (the firm’s most valuable executive), and Brittany Wright; a fiercely ambitious junior marketing associate new to the company. The question in Season 1 will be: Can Terrance successfully balance the often conflicting demands of friendship, career, and romance in the fast, concrete, winner-take-all city of Philadelphia?

Pilot Episode Synopsis
