Scripty Things

I’ve written my fair share of feature film scripts and television series pilots. Some have even been produced.

I’ve also story edited or story consulted on close to 700 scripts, including several produced feature films and documentaries, and over 200 produced short films.

Lucky Stars






Lucky Stars is a romantic comedy set in the dog-eat-dog world of canine thespians.

Lucky Stars premiered at the Calgary International Film Festival. The US premiere was at the Barebones International Film Festival in Oklahoma. It also screened at a fundraiser for the BC SPCA’s Biscuit Fund.



“Uncorked” is a half-hour comedy series a fermentally challenged family created by Jason Margolis and Robert Wenzek. It was developed through the National Screen Institute’s Totally Television program.


The Great One

The Great One is a feature film script written by Jason Margolis and novelist Todd Babiak.

On August 9, 1988, Wayne Gretzky announced he was leaving Edmonton to play for the Los Angeles Kings. The press conference is known, only half-jokingly, as “Canada’s JFK moment” – all Canadians remember where they were when they heard the news.

Guy is a hapless, hockey-hating journalist on the verge of breaking the story of the decade, if only he could figure out what exactly that story is. The Great One won a fellowship from the Praxis Centre for Screenwriters.
