Logic is neat. Life is messy... An absurd half-hour comedy spec written in collaboration with comedian Alasdair Tremblay-Birchall.

Monogamish follows a couple in their early-30s battling to keep their marriage on track while experimenting with an open relationship. It originated as a spec one-hour drama script, and was then re-developed into a half-hour dramedy with the attached producer/development-exec. I ultimately decided to reboot the project as The Trouble With Unicorns, and this is my last draft in the half-hour format.
