Synopsis: My name is Mr. Remigijus Miciulis ( English people use to call me just Remi ). I am foreigner from Lithuania. Since 2004, then Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia and Poland joined EU, UK has got many foreigners from these countries. As I heard, many people arrived to UK for money, some because in UK better lifestyle and some ... because it was a dream. Then I just arrived, UK was for me like absolutely different world. Different language, traditions, people, nature and so on. After 2.5 year I wrote screenplay about me self. How I feel, what I was thinking before I left Lithuania and what I got after I arrived to UK. Beginning of film a lot of facts, then 'adventures' in UK. I imagine it as a 2,5 good comedy with real facts.

Title: PUT ME IN COACH

Logline: Average Americans compete against each other to win a pro sports contract.

Synopsis: PUT ME IN COACH is like AMERICAN IDOL meets pro sports. Regular Americans are given a chance to win a professional sports contract by first trying out for the show, then competing for a coveted spot on the, "DREAM TEAM," which will ultimately play against a pro team. One competitor is then awarded the pro contract if the "DREAM TEAM" should win the game. This show is designed to work with BASKETBALL, BASEBALL and FOOTBALL - the three most poplular sports in America. I believe this show will appeal to the mass audience of sports fans. How many fans have dreamed of becoming a pro ball player? The intensity of the competition, drama, conflict between competitors, as well as bonding of new friendships, will tap into the emotions of the audience and keep them coming back for more. Please let me know if I can send you the treatment. Thank you for your time and consideration.
