The Legend of Willie Telberg and Son: (William Tell meets Blazing Saddles)

Genre: Absurd Comedy Western

Logline: In the Fall of 1865, a sharp-shooting twelve-year-old Black American with Down Syndrome saves his father from a lynching.

Whilst developing a character with a ‘disability’ in a re-telling of the legend of Swiss hero William Tell and his son Walter, I saw the market potential for an off-beat comedy, featuring a Black American father and his very able Down Syndrome son in the American West; a scenario conducive to the sub-textual treatment of contemporary social issues, such as BLM, prejudice, and inclusivity. 

 

The Legend of Willie Telberg and Son, written with the works of Mel Brooks and the Coen Bros in mind, irreverently serves to underscore the fact that even the so-called ‘disabled’ are indeed able.
