YELLOW BIRD is a comedy/drama/workplace feature, recently completed.
A story about searching for happiness
In the style of The Office and Schitt’s Creek, comes a fun new comedy about searching for happiness, “Yellow Bird.” This heart-felt film, set in a small country-town grocery store named "The Yellow Bird," is centered around once successful PR specialist, Jake (Angus Benfield), now a stock boy in his mid-forties, struggling with his sobriety, and his conscience in the guise of a gnome (Brian Doyle-Murray) who is determined to remind Jake of all his failings, including his marriage. Jake’s mother, Rachel Rush (Kathy Garver), is struggling with Alzheimer's and is living in an RV, Rachel is holding onto a past she remembers as much more adventurous and exciting than this life, and is determined to find it once again, and Scotty, the protagonistic store manager who is stuck in a job his father wants him to be in, and so makes all the fun and quirky employees at “The Yellow Bird” miserable in return.
