David’s Reverie

Tweetable Logline: A jazz musician struggles to prevent his epilepsy diagnosis from derailing his emerging career.

Elevator Pitch: DAVID’S REVERIE, starring Brandon Fobbs (“The Wire”, “Walking Dead”), tells the story of an up-and-coming jazz musician whose dream of leading his jazz band to a broader audience is halted when he is diagnosed with epilepsy.
