Petition Addressing the Texas Judicial System Requests Support through Andy Samberg’s “Dumbass”
Will Hollywood be a Reason for Change in the Injustice against Men and Women Prisoners?
19th March 2021 – An upcoming movie depicting the injustice that men and women had to endure in the state penitentiaries in Texas has been inundated with calls from more than 2000 women urging the production company owned by Hollywood actor, producer and director Andy Samberg and Adam Sandler, to stick to the real issues behind the Texas Judicial system. A petition was signed by many people that include attorneys, university professors, politicians and family members of the many men and women that are suffering in the state penitentiaries. The idea behind the petition is for the Andy Samberg production company and Hollywood to stick to the true story about the injustices happening in the state run prisons. It is said that the state has sent more inmates to prison than during the Soviet Union did during their political uprising.
PREMISE: Adam Sandler writes letters and saves numerous women from the monotony of prison life, and later when he gets into trouble with a drug cartel they return the favor by rescuing him.
SETTING: Contemporary, Gatesville Texas. There are four women’s prisons located in Gatesville. And of course, Texas is famous for putting everyone in prison for a long time for little or no reason. The number of women in Texas prisons has doubled in the last ten years. Why don’t we have the “Adam Sandler” character… sending letters to women in prison and being their friend and trying to help them adjust, giving them hope… and when they get out of prison he picks them up so they don’t have to ride the smelly bus back home… but his pickup truck is a junker, smoking and sputtering … worse than the bus. But his heart is in the right place… He’s the last “chivalrous” man on earth.
It is said in the petition that many of the signatories were left distraught to find that many of the first time offenders for violations such as drug peddling have received disproportionate sentences. While some argue that a lenient sentence like rehabilitation would have proven much more inexpensive and an effective solution in tackling this gross miscarriage of justice. The petition was discovered by the women when the screenplay of the movie was donated to all the 580 prisons run by private organizations funded by the state government. It is much more difficult for women who are given much harsher penalties for a violation such as carrying small amount of drugs like Marijuana which coincidentally is legal in 21 states.
About Andy Samberg’s “Dumbass” Movie
The movie “Dumbass” revolves around the protagonist writing letters to prison inmates to keep their spirits high during their time in prison; only for them to help the main character who gets into trouble with a drug cartel and saving him at the end. The petition urges the production company, Andy Samberg and Adam Sandler to take this issue seriously due to the hardships faced by women inside prison rather than making light of the situation for their own profits.

Youre still not buying this commercialization stuff? Can you still break in without a commercial script? Sure. There are plenty of other markets available. Lets review a few
Andy Samberg – How to Break the Mold on Your Own
If, however, you havent written the novel version of your material and you live in Ohio with no Hollywood contacts, then your material will need drastic commercialization to hit the Hollywood mark.
The KIND of story a story is does not always have anything to do with genre. Let me use a couple of recent movie examples to illustrate this.
Andy Samberg – While everything Im going to talk about concerning general story structure is going to be useful for you, I really think that the best thing that you can do to help yourself with story structure is to look at and compare in depth 5-10 (ten being best!) stories films, novels, and plays that are similar in kind (or type, or structural pattern) to yours. Because different kinds of stories have different and very specific structural arcs, and those structures have their own unique and essential elements that are incredibly useful to be aware of so you can use them for yourself.
So before we move on to general overall structure, I want to briefly introduce you to an idea that may help you nail your premise down. Its actually one of the most important things you will ever learn about structuring a book, or movie, or play: the idea of story patterns or types. You can call it anything you want, but I always think of it as: What KIND of story is it?
