September's The Live Read with Gab Bottoni show at PHIT Comedy was no joke, y'all. I was honored to live read a pilot written by my very first screenwriting professor, David Greenberg, called "LUNCHEONETTE:"
After her mother dies unexpectedly, driven, workaholic young businesswoman Maria De Luca inherits the South Philly sandwich shop that has been in her family for generations and suddenly has to choose between her blossoming career or keeping the place open — encountering obstacles from a variety of relatives, employees, customers and devious rival restauranteurs.
If you missed the show, you definitely missed something special.
David Greenberg has over twenty years of professional screenwriting experience, nearly 50 screenplays, three produced feature films, two documentaries and countless shorts to his credit. He teaches screenwriting at Drexel University and The University of the Arts. In 2016, his first feature as writer-director "Stomping Ground" premiered at the Philadelphia Independent Film Festival and his short film "Interrogation" won a Special Jury Prize at the L.A. Neo-Noir Film Festival.
