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.”

“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.

Posted on

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

COOKED first promo release “Religious Recipes” Humor. By Jim Baugh

Posted on

COOKEDlogo1-1Here it is folks, the first quote I am making public from my second novel “COOKED” This book is full of more of the hilarious behind the scenes stories of filming Jim Baugh Outdoors TV, mostly the cooking segments. The book will be a full novel, with a recipe section at the end of each chapter. Sort of like Nora Ephron but on much stronger steroids. This quote goes out to my friend Author and Playwright, Mark Covington. His humor is equally twisted as mine! 

Title of Chapter: 

“Religious Recipes” 

“I always was happy that the good Lord turned water into wine, but never understood why he did not help out more with some culinary education, after all, a lot of us need help in this area. As a young Christian boy, I often wondered who in the world created the dreaded…………. 

Methodist Sunday Covered Dish Supper? 

I mean really, 50 casserole dishes lined up all with the same floating melted bagged cheese on top, with what ever surprises lay underneath. Seriously, our Methodist culinary knowledge only included recipes that consisted of these three ingredients: 

Cheese,

Pyrex &

Tupperware. 

The occasional broccoli may have been thrown in for good measure along with some frozen cubed chicken. YUM YUM!! All that cheese! Always wondered why these old ladies did not get stopped up like 5pm LA traffic. 

I understand the good Lord wants and encourages fellowship. However he would have to have SOME opinion about what is in these cholesterol bombs. Do you really think J.C. himself would approve of a covered dish that included such healthy bits of nourishment in one five by ten container?? 

Two cups cheddar cheese, one cup velveta, one cup flour, four teaspoons sugar, Crisco to coat the pan, two sticks melted butter, and two pieces of cauliflower in the bottom of the pan covered by white flour elbow noodles. 

Bake at 350 for an hour, …..then pray there is an afterlife. 

I got to tell ya, at these festivals of gastric casserole delights, if I had the power Id be turning water into wine too. Then order take out!! 

The only thing I did fully understand about these covered dish dinners is why there was always…..

Leftovers.
