Why not have a season where ALL of the Celebrities are dance professionals. Not in ballroom dancing of course but in other styles. For instance, Adam Shankman, Beyonce, Rudolph Nuryev etc. I think a season like that would definitely raise the ratings.

Untold true story about 9-11. Action-adventure that describes how Army Secret Agent Kennedy Uzomba develops a plan to protect America against all odds. The Screenplay Synopsis - by Kennedy C. Uzomba ************************************** BASED ON TRUE EVENTS MISSION IMPOSSIBLE with a BIG FISH twist. The story begins with an underperforming high strung, loose cannon reporter that is threatened by his Chief Editor to write a story that will make headline news or he's finished. He does just that, but later must explain his rush to publish an untold true story of an unsung US Army Officer whom developed grand military tactics to protect America; when unexpectedly, news leaks out on the website that questions the veracity of the reporters' story. The reporter feels betrayed and hastily confronts Kennedy Uzomba, whom is now a civilian, to explain the accusations against him. Uzomba then explains his side of the story with a series of flashbacks, starting when former National Security Advisor Condoleezza Rice announced in a Meet the Press interview that it was a Special Agent that developed the plans to protect America from global terrorism. The story then flashbacks to a more ordinary world which describes Uzomba's civilian live before he enters the military. Uzomba disregards his own father's wishes and ignores a conniving and treacherous sister to join the Army. He embarks on a call to adventure that follows him through Army Boot Camp training. There he is confronted by challenges that test his resolve to endure the harsh unforgiving realities of military indoctrination. He must overcome being bullied by a Drill Sergeant who strikes him in the face just because Uzomba beat him in a friendly game of basketball. He fights back and must prove his allegiance to the Army or face a court martial. He challenges the motive behind why he was struck over a game of basketball, and wins the support of his Commanding Officer. He graduates Army Basic Training to join the Reserve Officer Training Course. Little does he know that all along, these challenges were cleverly disguised to prepare him for even greater challenges beyond the call of duty. The government hires a private international secret service agency and attaches our young hero to this unit to investigate possible illegal activity by 'rogue' government officials. Uzomba is mentored by his unit commander Colonel Blacknight who is a fully decorated and hardened veteran military officer that operates the agency and delegate's missions. He is also mentored by his ROTC instructor, Major Swindler to develop a plan to protect America from the growing terrorism problem. Unbeknownst to him, Major Swindler turns out to be a low visibility secret operative double agent working for the other side. And when he discovers that both of his mentors may have a lot more in common than anyone guessed, the story takes another unexpected twist that surprises even the most senior members of the military. While others gave excuses he gives this mission his full uncompromising attention. Uzomba must now play clog and dagger patriot games which require him to pretend that he is unaware of Major Swindler's double agent status, while he simultaneously investigates his mentors true intentions and allegiance. The government implants listening and video devices on the agent so that he can investigate his mentor. Uzomba undergoes very excruciating, strenuous and secretive special agent training to examine his abilities to handle extreme situations. He experiences mind control and precognition devices that allow him to explore future events that will involve national security. His mentors are now caught in an ever-widening and complex sea of espionage and intrigue. How does Major Swindler now approach his double role and not expose himself to treason? Does Uzomba really know what's going on? Does Major Swindler eliminate the agent and risk exposure or try something else. Major Swindler decides to discredit Uzomba through a series of smear campaigns that involve the Uzomba's family, his unit and anyone associated with him that may be his enemy. His family is totally unaware of the mentor's ambiguous schemes of deception. Since this mission involves confidential national security issues of the upmost importance Uzomba must maintain operational security. At stake is the American way of life. He begins to court his college sweetheart, whom is also unaware of the secret mission he must face. Uzomba is now confronted with a dilemma of epic proportions. How does he continue to develop this important national security plan, when everyone is against him? Does he continue the mission? Why? Wrongly accused of being a double agent, he is in it too deep to quit now. He now has the ability to receive and give worldwide missions in his head through clandestine devises implanted on him. Uzomba is an expert at playing the game of Risk (Board world domination strategy game) and uses every skill to develop a plan to combat global terrorism. He sends his plan to the White House, whereas President Reagan's National Security Council instantly approve of it. While developing a plan to protect America, he must defy a ruthless and volatile underworld crime syndicate that involves ''rouge'' government officials to unravel a diabolic plot to cause mass causalities in America, and at the same time, roll back the tide of communism in Nicaragua, Grenada and Panama. He has again reached an even higher threshold of danger, as the plot thickens; whereas he must give it everything he's got or give up. If he gives up now he will be placed in a secret CIA detention facility and never heard from again. He chooses to be a patriot and defend what he believes is the right thing to do. While others gave excuses, Uzomba gave everything and eventually loses everything, including the love and support of his birth family, as duty called him to a higher cause. This dangerous spy game attracts plenty of bad guys aimed at eliminating our young hero. Uzomba's walking on egg shells by now. He undergoes several tests, and must de-code who his real allies and enemies are. This dynamic development draws together several major world superpowers and their war machines, three determined antagonists, an unyielding protagonist, his fiancée, a spy's mistress, and other supporting characters toward a head-on collision course between the forces of good and evil. He is aided by four gorgeous & sexy women on his team - white, black, oriental & hispanic who tip him off about certain threats he must face. All want him, but he only has feelings for his fiancée, whom all of them are jealous of. The crisis involves an evil secret society that wants control over major oil fields and other resources in Southwest Asia, the Middle East and Central Asia; and Uzomba that wants to protect his country. Uzomba receives orders to field test his plan on Active Duty, where he must simultaneously battle and uncover double agents, avoid assassination and prepare the armed forces for battle. He's now on an even higher plane of treachery, as he must navigate around espionage minefields around every corner and everywhere he goes, even in his own unit. Sensational and spectacular action scenes are mixed with exotic women, exotic cars, and exotic locations. Explosive fight scenes are filled with unabashed raw adrenaline. The chase scenes are electrifying and edgy. An extremely volatile and dangerous environment that requires razor quick decisions. The whole ordeal creates white-knuckle, nail biting suspense, pulse-pounding thrills, action and intrigue all throughout Uzomba's struggle and rise to fame and power. Uzomba is finally rewarded with leave time to reconnect with his fiancée. The romance is captivating and will leave you breathless. By now he has fallen deeply in love with his college sweetheart Angela, and she too must endure the dark shadows of ruthless treachery that confront him; but their love for each other grows stronger than any force against them; and, like a true soldier herself, she stands by her man until the very end. The road back to a normal life is daunting for this high rolling, high stakes super-agent of intrigue, but he finally keeps it together long enough to marry his fiancée. The mission is still pressing, as he is soon called to a secret closed session military briefing that involves national security. There, Uzomba must unravel intriguing complex issues of national interest. He discovers that there is a shadow government that operates within and irrespective of our democratic system, and he must engage them in a final showdown of nerve and resolve. They have their own mixed agenda and army of ''soldiers'' who regularly penetrate in and out of our institutional agencies. These soldiers work on both sides of the law. They are well trained to manipulate what people perceive, hear, see, say, and do. They work in our prison systems, government agencies, institutional, as well as public and private corporations and most local, regional, state and federal municipalities. They hide and manipulate facts, evidence, witnesses, procedures and policies all UNDER THE COLOR AND COVER OF LAW. Surprisingly, he discovers that among these low visibility operatives are his former mentor, Major Swindler and also the ''rouge'' government official that is the mastermind behind the assassination attempts against Uzomba and other illegal activity against the people of the United States of America. Their ultimate objective is to achieve results in favor of the private interest groups and secret societies that control these ''SOLDIERS''; who usually operate irrespective of and above CONGRESSIONAL JURISDICTION. And whether they are right or wrong has everything to do with who finances them. Against all odds, a resurrection finally places the agent in a position to give the marching orders for our armed forces to respond to 9-11 and protect America. His message, ''This war was fought not just to defend democracy, but to ensure that the other side doesn't take democracy away from us. Freedom is priceless, and there's a price for freedom. Freedom is never free. IF WE ALLOW DEMOCRACY TO FAIL, WE INVITE ANARCHY TO PREVAIL! Please let us not say 100 years from now: There once was a dream called DEMOCRACY. The story ends where it began. The reporter is now the Chief Editor. And is collaborating with Uzomba on other movie deals.
