TITLE: Ghost Mayor
PREMISE: The ghost of a man killed in senseless violence runs for mayor of Chicago with the agenda of ending the gun violence.
GENRE: African American drama, political drama
SETTING: Chicago, USA
WRITER: Alan Nafzger
OTHER INFORMATION: This is a complete and ready to shot screenplay.
When African-American Calvin Palmer (58) arrives in Heaven he discovers that it isn’t much different than the line he has been waiting in at the DMV. He collapses at the DVM (presumably of a heart attack), but he awakes in something like a processing center for Heaven. There is a line for Muslims, Christians, Jews, Hindi etc. Everyone is patiently waiting, but the line isn’t moving. So Calvin turns around and exits the building and finds himself back in Chicago.
There are two reasons a ghost remains on earth – 1) to seek some sort of revenge and 2) the other to so some great good.
