Willie 3.png

LOGLINE

After washing ashore with no recollection of who he is or how he got there, an angry, alcoholic, sex-starved Penis Fish finds himself at the center of a bizarre conspiracy in which he is both lead investigator and prime suspect.

THEME

Part sitcom, part surreal crime drama, Private Dick is a ridiculous but thoughtful look at the existential pickle we call life.  Often roused into existence at the first signs of middle age, this "life crisis" is ultimately about coming to terms with mortality.  And for Willie Dick, from the moment he first awakens on the beach, his existence is a series of difficult yet enlightening adventures, puzzles, and lessons that will allow him to consciously come to terms with the uncertain certainty... of death.

COMPS

Memento, Big Mouth, Chinatown, All in the Family
