Breezee's Shared Custody

Loan payment advisor Dave Davis is arrested in the middle of the night, his Basset Hound Breezee howling in protest as they're hauling him away. The charge? Murdering his ex-wife's boyfriend, who'd also been Dave’s boss. 


After mug shots and fingerprinting, Dave is marched to the showers under the watchful eye of a leering female deputy. Then he's tossed into a cell occupied by a grizzled biker who thinks his clean-cut appearance, given the surroundings, is hilarious.  


Dave’s mother plans on storming his arraignment with a regiment of Junior Leaguers. But his uncle Bill, a former prosecutor who’s coming out of retirement and switching sides to defend him, brings her to her senses, convinces her to instead harass the authorities with her political clout.

Baby Grand Legacy

Formerly titled Baby Grand: The Beginning
 

Gifted Racers, Episode I 


Kevin Johnson is a sheltered boy who attends an exclusive Catholic school, even though he isn't Catholic. His interests are: girls, specifically Bonnie McGee, who he hasn’t worked up the nerve to ask out yet; martial arts, that he hasn't mastered yet; auto racing, that he hasn't been able to openly watch on television yet. His father, for some odd reason, has an aversion to the sport. Kevin and Bonnie end up going out, though, and he saves a child’s life on their first date. Bonnie is very impressed. 


But instead of spending a blissful summer with Bonnie, Kevin is sent away to live with grandparents he barely knows. He's hoping to at least learn the secrets his parents have been keeping from him, but his grandparents have been coerced into silence. The next door neighbor girl, however, has no qualms about discussing anything, and somehow knows all of the dirt on his family. The problem is, not only is she so far out of his league that it's embarrassing, she seems to enjoy embarrassing him.

But he’s not alone in this clandestine endeavor; his grandparents, plus his girlfriend and hers are in on it. They believe in his abilities, and he in theirs. But he’s getting nervous.

DECORATED MILITARY VETERANS TURN OUTLAW


From the flying bridge of criminal defense attorney Jake Olson's boat, he and former Navy SEAL Frank Schroeder witness an apparent drug deal gone bad. Alerting the others below, they give chase and capture the runaway speedboat carrying a dead man and two duffel bags of marijuana. Then they go back and rescue the wounded man in the water, who offers the shipment as a token of his appreciation for saving his life even though he's in no position to have any say in the matter. Knowing an opportunity when they see one, though, Jake and the guys propose joining forces with him. Their deal is accepted, but it's conditional on them killing the man responsible for this fiasco.

One Lowly Angel

The second BoonieRats - Jake Olson Adventure
 

Montana horse ranchers Jake Olson and Frank Schroeder reunite with their BoonieRats biker brothers at the Sturgis, South Dakota, motorcycle rally. In their absence, villains take what's dear to them. Then they lure Jake’s wife out into the wilderness to pay the ransom, intent on having their way with her, thereby ruining Jake and his family. But they find gold on Jake’s property—gold he’s never seen—and decide that raping isn't enough; they have to kill her in order to make a clean getaway. 


A former outlaw biker turned preacher and his supernatural chaperone catch wind of the scheme and rush to stop it, unaware of the Native American shaman and his apprentices waiting to make their move. A foxy grandmother undersheriff is also on the case. One step behind them all but coming on fast is Jake Olson, armed with nerve and a .357 Magnum. Saddle-up for this mystical Wild West-like thriller that takes place not in the 1880s, but the 1980s.
