The Tenth Round
Stephanie and I were watching a field piece on Oprah some years ago about the tragic story of two heavyweight boxers, one white, the other black. The story was so compelling she got in touch with the two boxers and offered to write a screenplay about their story. She wrote a terrific script—even more amazing since it was her first. Here is a link to The Tenth Round website. She's looking to get the film set up and has already had some interest. It's a poignant, powerful story, really well told.
BTW—here's her IMDb page. There are a few credits missing, ironically including one for a show she produced for Oprah's network a few years after writing the script.
