Two inept brothers from Texas, come to Los Angels to find their estranged father and inevitably become hitmen. Blah Blah Blah....
"AL" and "LIL AL" are brothers who grew up in a seemingly normal middle-class conservative household. Unbeknownst to them, their father, JIM JENNINGS is a legendary hitman for the GULF COAST MOB.
Jim has recently been tasked with the murder of the heir to the SOUTH BAY MOB in an act of familial Parricide, he, however, does not follow through with the job because he believes it will lead to a war that will ultimately get himself and all of his family killed. Instead, he turns state's witness for the FBI with the plan to keep his children safe.
The GOLDMAN TRIBE - A criminal organization split up into two sub-families, the GULF COAST MOB (Texas) and the SOUTH BAY MOB (Los Angeles).
Shadow members within the Gulf Coast Mob seek to use the brothers as pawns in a Coup d’etat, with the intention to consolidate both organizations into one unified empire. The two estranged brothers, kidnapped, threatened, and beaten are left with no options but to head to Southern California and find their father or finish his task.
Waiting to Kill is an hour drama; True Romance meets True Detective. A 20 Episode Anthology broken into two seasons. Season One will follow our protagonist as they become Killers. Season Two, titled Waiting to Die, we will watch as the brothers ultimately atone for their sins.
Season Three, Waiting to Kill again will have two new lead protagonist, Al and Lil Al's sisters, Alexandra and Alisha. You can guess where it goes from there. Blah Blah Blah...
Our story will take place in the back alleys of West LA’s pseudo exceptionalism. From the drug front of a Green Juicery, the scantily clad sex cult yoga studio, all the way to the Pyramid scheme of Café Gratitude.
We will follow the brothers as they leave no crystal unturned in their quest to adjust to trustafarian logic, pacifist assholes, and the Murders that will pay for it all...
You can’t put a price tag on health…or reason...
Blah Blah Blah Venice sunsets.
ALBERT “AL” JENNINGS
ALBERT “AL” JENNINGS
AL – Recently released from jail for laundering money through his small bar in Texas. The older brother, Al grew up never being noticed or considered, which leads him to constantly assert himself and his archaic masculine ideologies. He is divorced with a 12-year-old daughter. He is constantly being emasculated by the women in his life. He is convinced that his father is the reason for his family issues. AL reads incessantly and fancies himself an intellectual but he really has no idea what he is talking about.
ALOYSIUS “LIL AL” JENNINGS
LIL AL - Ranch hand and semi-professional poker player. Not autistic but he is on the spectrum. He is the younger brother and he has always been coddled. He grew up watching old silver screen movies and listening to soul music and has never experienced love from those closest to him, making his desire for nostalgia and to be loved heightened. Lil Al is very good with numbers as he only sees information. This leads to making misinformed decisions with people as he is constantly regurgitating what he has seen and not what he has felt.

ALEXANDER JAMES "JIM" JENNINGS
JIM is the bygone father of the Jennings family. He has always had a cavalier attitude toward life. Undereducated, and needing money to support his first family, he went to work for Susan Gold as muscle, that ultimately lead to him becoming a contract killer. He has two separate families one he left in Texas and one he occasionally see's in Utah. He doesn’t take out the heir to the Goldman family because he believes it will lead to a war. He goes to the FBI instead to turn states evidence, which he believes is the only way to protect his families. When his sons kill both heirs it creates chaos, leaving JIM helpless, whilst he tries to contain both mobs and the FBI.
