Get to know writer Debi Calabro:

Matthew Toffolo: What is your screenplay about?

Debi Calabro: It’s about three very different families and how their involvement in the sport of horse racing brings them together.

Matthew: Why should this screenplay be made into a TV show?

Debi: The series would focus on these three families and their trials and tribulations on and off the racetrack. Their situations are all very unique and it will be compelling to see how they solve (or try to solve) their own issues as well as how they intermingle which usually causes more turmoil than not.

Racetrack attendees are a rare breed and this group is no different which will make the show interesting and entertaining to watch.

Matthew: How would you describe this script in two words?

Debi: Unique, entertaining.

Matthew: What TV show(s) do you keep watching over and over again?

Debi: Rescue Me, Modern Family, Seinfeld,

Matthew: How long have you been working on this screenplay?

Debi: About eight months.

Matthew: How many stories have you written?

Debi: Lost count.

Matthew: What motivated you to write this screenplay?

Debi: As a racehorse owner I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to write about the characters that attend the track on a daily basis. From the down and out gambler who would spend their last two bucks on a bet to the wealthiest thoroughbred owners, they all have one thing in common, to win

Matthew: What obstacles did you face to finish this screenplay?

Debi: None.

Matthew: Apart from writing, what else are you passionate about?

Debi: Being a racehorse owner.

Matthew: What influenced you to enter the festival? What were your feelings on the initial feedback you received?

Debi: I really liked the idea of the reading and the feedback was priceless.

Matthew: Any advice or tips you’d like to pass on to other writers?

Debi: Always get your work critiqued before sending it out. When you receive the critique back read it a couple of times to really understand what your consultant is trying to say because when you first read it one would perhaps try to dismiss it since, as the writer, you might not be able to comprehend how “your” story could be any other way. But someone else’s opinion, especially a professional, can most often than not, open the writers eyes for a new perspective.

Director/Producer: Matthew Toffolo
