HOOKED

S c r e e n p l a y

Written by

Jim Baugh & Donna Bozza

“HOOKED” Screenplay is an adaptation of two of Jim Baugh’s popular books, Hooked and Aftermath. The general outline took 2  years, the script was written in three months and completed in March 2016. Final revisions and five script coverages took an additional six months.The project consisted of 115 drafts, many polishes and multiple table reads.  The final script was #120 and went to market mid December 2016. We will post results and developments here and the Jim Baugh Outdoors BlogSpot. Stay tuned!

Special thanks to Co-Writer Donna Bozza

(A brilliant writer and beautiful wife)

Also to writers Karen Jolly Davis, Chris Jacobson, and Novelist Joe Jackson for their reviews and critiques. and coverage. Much appreciated!

HOOKED Screenplay: Quotes from Producers, Publishers and Coverage Reviews 

“Memorable Southern iconic characters sprinkled throughout–especially the Judge and Tennessee Tim”

“This screenplay has promise as a film that looks at the life and times of a musician who wound up in a career in the outdoors community.”

“It’s Jim’s point-of-view that makes the story (and the nostalgia) work”

“The flashbacks were nicely handled as well the montage sequences that collapsed the chronology—they had a nice visual life to them.”

“The dialogue sounded true to this reader’s ear—who’s lived the bulk of his life in the South.”

“The romantic ending is nice–although Donna seems perhaps too good to be true.”

“A good read especially the site specific VA references and some of the more picturesque characters.”

“A hilarious adaptation of both books Hooked and Aftermath. This film I will go see!”
“Script is well-written, very colorful, and interesting characters.”

Quotes from five star reviews “AFTERMATH” the sequel to HOOKED

“From the very first paragraph I was enthralled and did not want to put it down “

“AFTERMATH is what happens after HOOKED. He’s blunt, he’s real, he’s funny, and he isn’t afraid to show his vulnerability. He is creative, innovative, and even audacious in a daring but not reckless, sort of way. Throughout AFTERMATH and HOOKED we see a man with soul, personality, and a familiarity that reminds us of our favorite people even if we don’t know him personally.”

“Aftermath was a great read! His story sends a powerful message to all, but especially to those that are failing to recognize that there can be humor mixed in with the greater good in God’s plan for us!”

“I loved the book and how it struck me that ‘Hooked” was the Cocoon and Aftermath the Butterfly.”

“Hooked” & “Aftermath” is one of those rare women/men crossover reads. Jim speaks to the hearts of both using disarming wit and good-natured humor. “Aftermath” is a poignant sequel to “Hooked” [but you MUST read Hooked!] An unvarnished portrayal of living your faith in the real world, Jim’s wild ride continues. I’m glad I took the passenger seat!”

“Aftermath is the perfect sequel to Hooked. Aftermath is a true love story, and it made me smile”

“Aftermath is a candid account of the ups and downs life hands us and the choices we must often face. Jim’s humorous spin (I couldn’t help but laugh out loud!) achieves a positivity that gives us all hope that the tide can indeed turn. Jim’s personal story of loss, love, adversity and accomplishment, keeps the pages turning! This is a vibrant memoir that is larger than life, just like the author. Very enjoyable read and highly recommended!”

“I highly recommend reading this sequel to “Hooked” by Jim Baugh:
Clearly an epic roller coaster ride along with Jim and his most adventuresome life!! Again he has made me laugh and cry and feel emotion at every turn of the page.”

“Just finished AFTERMATH and it’s another one of Jim Baugh’s wild rides. But in the end it’s a story of faith and a love story with a happy ending. Not to mention some very creative hijinks along the way”

“I went back and retread the entire book again! Still disappointed and knowing there’s more to his story, I eagerly await Volume Three OR perhaps “Aftermath: Ms. Donna’s Side”

“AFTERMATH”  Triennial memoir a solid “6” star out of five!

 

HOOKED: I had the pleasure of reading Jim Baugh’s memoir and when I heard he was writing a sequel I couldn’t wait to read it. My advice is to begin with HOOKED. You won’t be disappointed because he’s had a fascinating life and has a unique gift for storytelling. From the very first paragraph I was enthralled and did not want to put it down as he recounts his growing up years living a boys dream at the York River marina. From youth and into his adult years his story is an experience you won’t soon forget.

AFTERMATH is what happens after HOOKED. He’s blunt, he’s real, and he isn’t afraid to show his vulnerability. As his first novel was going viral he was about to be homeless with barely enough spare change to take a girl out to dinner. He’s not one to give up without a fight though and through one of his ingenious ideas he had beautiful women lining up for his famous Barbeque at JBBQ and a chance for romance. This brought plenty of business, but as we find out there is only one lady who can hook Mr. Baugh. Yes, he may have been about to loose his home but he wasn’t down and out because he is creative, innovative, and even audacious in a daring but not reckless, sort of way and the excitement never ends. I highly recommend HOOKED & AFTERMATH.  A continuation of Jim Baugh’s fascinating memoir (A solid 6 star)

NOTE: “Aftermath” will be included in the second edition release of “HOOKED” by Jim Baugh published by Solstice Publishing on Sept 22, 2014. Available in paperback and Ebook on Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

Hi Everyone! 

HOOKED

Update from HOOKED central. I am down in Florida on Cedar Key Island for several months writing and filming episodes for Jim Baugh Outdoors TV 2015 season. While here we will cover the state from Cedar Key to Key West. I am also editing our anniversary specials to air by July 2014. One feature we have completed post production and here is a FIRST LOOK at our Outer Banks show. Click Below

Also I have a heavy writing schedule while in the sunshine state, I will complete the “Aftermath” chapter and other bonus material for the second edition and three year anniversary of HOOKED. On top of that, I am doing my best to get the screenplay completed.

The HOOKED screenplay will include most of the firCOOKEDlogo2st edition of HOOKED, the second edition “Aftermath” as well as stories from my second novel “COOKED” that is not even available yet. I have to complete the screenplay first so that is delaying the release of COOKED for a while longer.

I am here with my partner Donna Bozza who is an excellent award winning writer and a top editor. You can check out her latest article in May-June issue of Coastal Virginia Magazine Kayaking Karma, which was chosen as a best pic by the magazines editor. Donna will be aiding me with my heavy writing schedule over the summer and it was her idea to work, produce, and write here in Cedar Key for several months. It was a great idea! Donna also is writing for her Coastin’ lifestyle blog and beginning to work on her new novel.DONNA-cvamag-BEST-PICS
