Blue Demons – The Jennings Boyd Story

A true-story adaptation of a basketball coach’s career and family life into a screenplay.


Patrick Boyd, subject and producer.


Adapt a true family story based on a legendary high school basketball coach.


I was contacted by Grace Koo, a producer, to consult her client, Patrick Boyd regarding turning his family story into a feature film. Over several months, we discussed the background of the exciting sports narrative plus Patrick’s personal stake as a character in the film. I was hired to create a narrative treatment and a breakdown for a line producer to create a top sheet budget. I was then contracted to write the screenplay. The process involves frequent interviews with Patrick and other key players in the story to ensure authenticity.
