FADE IN:


EXT. MANHATTAN SKYLINE - DAY

An urban area is situated in Staten Island in the middle of New York City.

EXT. NETWORK HEADQUARTERS - DAY

The network’s headquarters sits in the heart of downtown Manhattan.

INT. BUSINESS HALLWAY - DAY

Charlie and Ash walk towards the conference room.

Leah walks toward them, with her phone in hand.

LEAH
Guys! You need to see this!

Charlie and Ash turn towards each other.

Then they shrug in exasperation.

Charlie then grabs Leah’s phone.

CHARLIE
S***!

LEAH
What is it?

Ash stops Charlie from throwing Leah’s phone across the room.

ASH
Let’s just talk things out, okay?

From across the hall, Jesse runs towards the group.

Shock enters Jesse’s face.

JESSE
What just happened?

LEAH
You just missed an almost total destruction of my phone!

Jesse sighs.

Leah then turns to Charlie.

LEAH (CONT’D)
(angrily)
Don’t ever do that again!

Charlie shrugs and lets out a long-winded sigh.

INT. CONFERENCE ROOM - DAY

The group (Kasey, Jesse, Matt, Charlie, Ash, and Leah) gathers together in the conference room table, sitting on opposite sides of each other.

Charlie has a stack of reports.

Jesse has a notepad and a pencil in front of him. He jots down notes.

Leah looks up from her laptop.

LEAH
Everything is down. Advertisers have been pulling out since Thursday.

JESSE
And we need to pull The Bullpen from the Friday night schedule until after the November sweeps period.

Ash looks up at Jesse.

ASH
Jesse, when we pull a show, it doesn’t usually air again. Remember Psych Med?

CHARLIE
Ash, this is a different case. We have a weak link, but other shows minus the comedies and maybe The President’s Daughter have crashed too.

Charlie then takes a drink of water. She then sets the glass of water in front of her.

CHARLIE (CONT'D)
Maybe we should take a look at Real Hollywood and how it affects the Monday night schedule. As it stands, Paradise is the lowest rated drama on the lineup. It’s lower rated than The Bullpen right now.

Matt then gets up.

MATT
What’s the deal with Real Hollywood?

CHARLIE
Don’t you start trifling with me, Matty Boy.

MATT
Why do you say that Real Hollywood is affecting the Monday night schedule?

Charlie then takes a deep breath. She pulls up the ratings trend graphs.

CHARLIE
When Real Hollywood goes down, so does Paradise.

Ash nods.

Ash then grabs the stack of reports.

ASH
As much as I don’t want to do this, we do not need to pull Real Hollywood from the schedule before the November sweeps period.

Kasey then writes the information on a notepad.

ASH (CONT'D)
We are definitely canceling Paradise. But that’s not all. Since Cardinal Heights is the second lowest rated show in the schedule, we are capping it at 13 episodes. Once it finishes its season, then we are moving Real Hollywood there.

Leah then looks up at Ash.

LEAH
What about Glamanour Heights?

CHARLIE
It’s the least of our problems at the moment. It’s not as relatively low rated like it was at the end of the season, but now with the declining ratings, it’s in the middle of the pack, following The President’s Daughter and the comedies. That's what happens when a network is in freefall.

The group then sighs.

FADE IN:


INT. CAR - DAY

Noah and Jack are in the car. Jack is driving.

Noah glares at Jack. He shrugs.

Jack’s hands are on the steering wheel. His eyes wander aimlessly at the road signs and buildings.

Noah sighs.

NOAH
Where exactly are we going?

Jack sighs as his eyes remain fixed on the road.

JACK
We are going to Coachella. I bought tickets.

Noah’s eyes widen.

NOAH
How are you able to afford all of this?

Jack grins.

JACK
Long story. It was a bet and a broken nose.

NOAH
In other words, a bar fight?

Jack and Noah shrug. They glare at each other.

Jack resumes looking at the road.

Noah looks at the road. He sighs.

EXT. CAR - DAY

The car rolls down the highway.

EXT. FESTIVAL VENUE PARKING LOT - DAY

The car rolls down to the venue parking lot. It is somewhat full, but it is early on in the day.

The car parks.

Noah and Jack get out of the car. They hold what appear to be festival passes in their hands.

EXT. GATE - DAY

They walk from the parking lot to the venue entrance.

They show their tickets to the attendant and walk inside the gate entrance.

EXT. FESTIVAL GROUNDS - DAY

Noah and Jack walk around aimlessly in the venue looking for stages.

NOAH
I sure would love to see a punk band one day.

JACK
Noah. There are barely any punk or any rock bands playing at this festival. And they are all somewhat obscure.

NOAH
What the hell does that suppose to mean?

The two of them go through merchandise tables and attempt to buy whatever they can find.

Then they take pictures of each other while noticing the festival attendees’ attire.

They look at each other. Jack raises his eyebrows.

Noah shrugs and smirks in agreement.

They continue walking.

SUPER: HOURS LATER

Jack and Noah gleefully walk through the festival grounds.

JACK
Did you see that? That was awesome!

NOAH
I couldn’t even feel my face.

JACK
I want to see more fire!

Jack jumps for joy.

An onlooker looks by then walks past Jack and Noah as if he pretends nothing happened.

INT. HOTEL ROOM - NIGHT

Noah kicks back on the sofa as he flips through the remote.

Jack looks on as he paces back and forth.

SUPER: A FEW DAYS LATER

EXT. CAR - DAY

Jack is focused on the road as he places both hands on the steering wheel.

Noah nods.

NOAH
Well, that was eventful.

JACK
You said it.

Laughter ensues.
