CONFESSIONS OF AN ACCIDENTAL ALIEN

Fictionalized autobiographical dark comedy about a UFO fanatic turned screenwriter on a rollercoaster ride of Hollywood success, failure and a nightmarish marriage that nearly destroys his career. The existential journey of an "alien" stranded on earth, from his teenage years raised by lesbians in the 50's to his adult struggles to survive in the film industry of the 70's through the 90's, to his globetrotting adventures as a miniseries writer from London to Morocco. All based on true events. Names have been changed to protect the guilty.
